about

As a special Silvester treat, Equinox releases an exclusive remix of Ceschi’s song “Black And White And Red All Over” by Greek producer Andreikelos.

With this new version, Andreikelos provides us with a darker and more electronic perspective of the song, but still tries to maintain a portion of the romantic and melancholic feel of the original – DJ Scientist produced – version.

Build from scratch upon Ceschi’s vocals, the structure of the music production works as a catalyst to his unique way of performing and the result is overwhelming.

For those who missed the original version (included in the Shorted Circuits EP), this song is about Ceschi growing up as a questioning Catholic school boy. As with most of Ceschi‘s music, all of the lyrics stem from reality. “Black And White And Red All Over” is Ceschi‘s ultimate ode to the hypocrisies of a church that brought him faith and proceeded to take it away.

Track Name: Black And White And Red All Over (Andreikelos Remix)
I am a product of catholic school ruler beatings
suspensions and foolish cheating
If I mention the ascension of christ in a sentence
I'm probably kidding
this is a song about confronting my demons
and leading them back into undeveloped regions of my brain
so the sequences stop repeating

on the phone Abuela tells me "dios te bendiga"
but I feel like God took back his blessings
ever since the moment i started breathing
and seeing the lack of validity surrounding all this mythology fed to me
fuck it even if i wanted to believe i could never make a false god into my centerpiece

when i was an alter boy i saw father pat drinking wine out of bottles in the back
i saw that fucker brother rich get fired for touching little kids during after school class
and when i heard that father conrad died of aids in 1990
i started realizing that i couldn't trust my church entirely

mother superior jumped the gun
in the name of the father, the holy ghost and the son
I present a toast to the nuns
falling in bad jokes like that one
what's black and white and red all over?
hope is all done.

God helps those who help themselves
God helps those with all the wealth
but God never helped me in my God damn life
so I gotta get up off the shelf
and I gotta do it fast
before the past catches up to me
sucking me back in it's trap
I always wanted to believe in a beautiful heaven
but the history of my religion made it completely irrelevant

shouts to the missionaries
raping the women, enslaving the men
shout out to animals buried
apparently y’all never got to heaven
and a final shout out goes to the popes, and priests and the bishops
abusing their power
everybody knows real gangsters rock robes and mitre crowns

mother superior jumped the gun
in the name of the father, the holy ghost and the son
I present a toast to the nuns
falling in bad jokes like that one
what's black and white and red all over?
hope is all done.
