PETER AND THE BLUE / PIOTR SŁOŃ
Warsaw based remixer/producer.
YOUNG, SELFISH, DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. ONCE PIOTREXX, NOW PETER & THE BLUE.
I finished making my very first remix in June 2010.
I love the 80’s music in general. I mean, who doesn’t... Some of the ‘80’s songs make me wish I was born in 1975, not 1995.
My old name was Piotrexx. Sounds awful, doesn’t it? I desperately needed a new one. During one of my photo shoots two years ago I wore a shiny blue coat, heavy as fuck. And that’s when it dawned on me that “blue” should be the key word in my new name. Blue is my favourite colour which, I believe, matches my personality. So, I started collating “blue” with “Peter” and after a while I got “Peter and the Blue”. It is too obvious that I was inspired by Florence and the Machine and Marina and the Diamonds.
My life is dominated by passion for making music and obsession with many amazing artists like Madonna, Kylie Minogue or Mylene Farmer to name a few. I have always wanted to strike a balance between those two things. Remixing is the ultimate answer. It allows me to express myself through music AND to pay tribute to my idols at the same time.
Madonna has been there for me for more than a half of my life. She started everything and influenced my personality, and ignited my passion for music.
I first heard about her when I was 10 or 11 years old.
Whatever you’re planning, count me in! You don’t have to ask me first. Working with you and Roman was everything! I couldn’t miss the chance to do it again.
