There is so much you can take of 80’s tunes being remixed in the 90’s! So I’m going into 90’s Indie mode for a few days.
Digging into one of my favourite genres of the time, trip-hop. Steve Osbourne applies the studio magic to the mixes of “Last Night”, shoegaze with beats and sheer class. (I’ve played his mixes already 4 times whilst doing this write-up!) The track originally appeared in the film “City Of Industry”
Additional tracks include some remixes off the album “Lovelife”, a very rough mix of single , “Ladykillers” (love those lyrics!) a long, involved mix by Spooky of “Undertow” who messes around with guitar sounds bending them into a hypnotic, trip-hop groove. Suga- Bullit gives a more urban, trip-hop feel to the title track, “Lovelife”complete with their ethereal vocals.
They have new stuff out which is worth having a listen
