Album Notes
The American Dream? - De Vesçi Code Remix (2017)

Notes from De Vesçi:

When Simon Roberts (aka Classicalbanksy) approached me on SoundCloud to remix his latest track, ‘The American Dream?’, it seemed like too good of an opportunity to turn down. After listening to his original, in which Simon perfectly creates a discussion between Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan, in the rousing “operatic pop” style he has come to make his own. The former seemingly announcing the death of the American Dream, whereas the latter is almost pleading to the modern American to remember what it is the American Dream truly stands for, and if they forget this America will cease to be the great country it once was.

With my remix, I wanted to put my own spin on things. Take Classicalbanksy’s original and bring it straight to the underground dance floors I’ve grown to love over the years. I tried to encompass the sounds that have become synonymous with the underground scene whilst staying true to the message in the original. Taking inspiration from producers such as Patrick Topping and Denis Cruz. Bringing a deep rolling bass line with hard drum hits, synths and sirens to create a dark house track to really fire the crowd up.

In the process of working on this production, the idea of the De Vesçi ‘Code’ was born. Although this is still early in its development as a concept, the Code will come to define my productions in bringing my own unique take on house music as genre.

Notes from Classicalbanksy:

On behalf of De Vesçi, myself, and all involved in the realisation of this remix of “The American Dream?” we’d like to thank you for buying and downloading this music. Your support will enable us to continue doing what we do best – creating the kind of music you love to listen to. Every piece of music tells a story. What’s the story behind this one?

Well, when a smart, talented Mancunian musician took the time to listen and ‘like’ the music I’d written to poet Tony Walsh’s “This is the Place,” on my SoundCloud Profile ( I was genuinely grateful. The piece means a lot to me. I have close ties with Manchester (my father was born and brought up there), and like many others I’d been shocked and upset by the atrocity that occurred in May 2017, when a bomb went off at the Manchester Arena, killing and injuring scores of people enjoying a concert. So to receive an acknowledgment from one of Manchester’s own, was really something quite special. Curious as to who De Vesçi was, I turned to his SoundCloud profile ( to listen to some of his music. And immediately I could tell I was dealing with real talent. New to the scene, but an undeniable bearer of that Mancunian Magic that has made Manchester the dance music capital of the UK.
For some time, I’d been looking for the right DJ/Producer to remix my single “The American Dream?” which I’d released in February 2017 ( ). It had been such an unusual, idiosyncratic idea - dramatizing a fictitious conversation between Presidents Reagan and Trump, starting the track with a “Trevor Horn-inspired” groove, but ending it just this side of Verdi - I knew there was much more that track had to yield up in the right hands.
Kind of expecting a ‘no,’ (I wasn’t really anticipating my previous career as an opera singer, or the kind of music I create these days - “Operatic Pop” - would be of much interest to a Wunderkind from Warrington), but to my great surprise, he enthusiastically agreed. And I think I had the first draft version, with that unmistakable De Vesçi flair and attention to detail, within a few days.
From then until now, working with De Vesçi has been an absolute pleasure. It’s given me a real sense of pride and satisfaction to have been able to help announce the arrival of what I believe will be a significant musical force in the future.
I hope you enjoy listening to this remix as much as we all enjoyed creating it for you. From all of us, thanks again for your support, and please – continue to champion the music of your favourite artists, so they can continue to create the music that is such a fundamental part of all our lives.
