If you’ve heard any classical piano at all, it’s likely you’ve heard some Erik Satie (and probably enjoyed it). A highly influential composer in his time, his style seems to have a lasting appeal. Now, his music is manifesting in contemporary music more and more. I have been caught by surprise a number of times, listening to a newer album or track and hearing Satie, and I couldn’t help but notice the growing reincarnation of his work in the (i.e. my little) music world. I’ve compiled a short mix of tracks that sample or cover the works of the Satie; you’ll be surprised who’s used them (featuring a #rare track from Lil B’s 800+ track Based Freestyle Mixtape!!)
