"Last year Cruisic released their 3rd 7 inch analog single “Floating / Lady Dahlia” which gained acclaim from domestic and European club music scene. During the release, Cruisic was recording their cover of Manchester legend 808 State’s timeless masterpiece “Pacific”. Original track hugely influenced the ambient house scene since 1989, Cruisic’s cover of “Pacific” will be seeing its release on Record Store Day 2022 April 23rd. While featuring bird chirpings as the original track, Cruisic rearranged the song into a Balearic sound and groove with electronica and acoustic drums combined. B-side “4Beat Club Version” is a swing jazz version featuring a running contrabass as the groove setter. Paying homage to the original 7 inch single, Cruisic’s release will be named “Pacific 707”

Jazz Carnival、Inspector Norse、Floatingと、リリースを重ねてきたCruisic。今回は’89の大傑作、808 StateのPacificを、悶絶バレアリック・カバー!B-Sideにはジャジーにスウィングするセルフ・リミックスを収録。

前作”Floating”そして”Lady Dahlia”を収録した7インチ・アナログが、国内はもとより欧州を中心に海外でも高い評価を得たCruisic。実はその時すでにレコーディングしていた本楽曲を、いよいよ2022RSDにてリリースする運びとなりました。今回は80年代末期のマンチェスターで結成された伝説の808 Stateの代表曲として、更にはアンビエント・ハウス・シーンにも大きな影響を与え、今もなお色褪せない魅力を放つ大名曲、”Pacific”のカバーです。原曲に散りばめられた鳥の囀りをも再現しつつも、より現代の感覚にフィットするバレアリックなテンポ感とサウンドで展開し、Cruisicならではの生ドラムとシーケンスの融合により完成されたCruisic版”Pacific”です。B-Sideには4ビートにウッドベースで展開した新感覚の”4Beat Club Version”を収録。本家が7インチ・リリースの際に命名したタイトル”Pacific-707″をも踏襲してのリリースです。初回完全限定盤。
