Duran Duran – Electric Barbarella (3X 12″ Promo’s)

This was a great track, Duran, as a trio, were trying to make a comeback in 1997.I saw them play live to half packed Manchester Apollo in November of that year and the new sound just blew me away. Video projectors were used and Nick Rhodes had twice as many synths as he was allowed to. A bit of forgotten classic from them, this was a return to their Sci-Fi roots:  but 13 mixes ???  Warren Bruce Cuccurullo (Ex-Missing Persons) helped out a lot on, keeping the pop sensibilty. Remixed by Todd Terry, Dom T, Russell Simms, (drummer with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) Steve Raskin and with even an acappella ! A range of styles; Electric Six is your breakbeat remix, breaks are still there on Dom T’s mixes.
