In march 2011, Pierre releases the album "74 Miles Away" together with Monkey Robot on the German label Melting Pot Music. He composed and recorded four electric jazz tracks with his trio, featuring Roman Korolik on bass and David Barker on drums. Monkey Robot has radically reworked these four songs featuring singers AHU (One Handed Music, best known from the first Flying Lotus album), Carina Andersson (the voice behind 4 Hero's epic take on Minnie Riperton's “Les Fleurs”) and Miles Bonny (MPM, DJ Day). A first single from this album "Same Dream Again" has been released early January 2011 on London-based label Brownswood. 74 miles away - Gear Change
After 2 years of touring with 74 miles away, the project slaps back with a full-grown and anticipated sequal called "Gear Change". This 8-tracks, fully instrumental album has been recorded within 2 days at Greenhouse Studio (with the help of Jean Vanesse). Though often less precise than practiced studio-arrangements, this live recording offers a more realistic, exciting and raw feel (all musicians & instruments took place in the same room, beside the amps). Very few overdubs were executed to keep an organic and unpolished sound.
