An accomplished pianist from an early age, self-confessed vinyl addict, Alan Sharpear has been involved in the world of music throughout his life. Inspired by the sounds of Kraftwerk and The Orb while growing up, the Israeli has subsequently found considerable success in the live and production arenas under his Sapiens pseudonym. A regular in the clubs and bars of his Tel Aviv hometown since 2004, his production work for the likes of Baroque, Particles and Suffused Music has seen his compositions reach a wide audience with an impressive and distinctive style.
Already featuring on Yin : Yang via his "Introversion" collaboration with Springa, remixed by East Café and Paul Hamilton, the Sapiens Remix of "Moby Dick" is a deep, rich, groove-oriented affair that pays tribute to Lanvary's original while adding a wealth of additional production material. A cavernous bass line penetrates the lower frequencies while a low-slung percussive cadence carries an analogue lead line that meanders its way across an open-filtered path in atmospheric glory.
