Killing Joke – Millennium (US 12″)

So Killing Joke have a go at some techno….Well band member Youth had been known to have a dabble. From 1994 and building on the meaty production of Greg Hunter we get a trio of remixers having a go.

First of the mixes was from Drum Club , a bit overlong and meandering for my ears but more club friendly. The next mix, “Back To Orion”, was by Juno Reactor and one of first the remixes that got me into his work. Keeping the muscular guitar riff he adds his own techno influences but removes the vocals (PLAY LOUD!!) Cybersank (Swedish producer Sanken Sandqvist)  , as you expect, keep faithful to the original track. The “Aotearoa Mix” was new to me, presumably mixed by Youth, it is the heaviest of all the tracks and has a live feel to it  but keeps that Eastern style string section in.
