David Bowie ‎– Jump They Say (US 12″)


From 1993 and Bowie really embracing the dancefloor on this US 12″. Brothers In Rhythm lead the mixes with a nice progressive house mix of the track. It proves that he had his finger on the pulse even when the album it was from , “Black Tie White Noise” , didn’t do much. This was the lead single from that album and dealt with Bowie’s feelings for his schizophrenic half-brother Terry, who had committed suicide on 16 January 1985. The lyrics tell of a man pushed to utter desperation by the pressure put on him, all wrapped up Nile Rodger’s funk influenced production. So here as well as Brothers In Rhythm, Leftfield, Meat Beat Manifesto and James Earley are granted mixes. (MBM remixes “Pallas Athena”) Still weird hearing his vocals over some pretty decent dance backing, his saxophone playing is excellent with Rodgers on guitar, plenty of mixes to pick through too but Leftfield’s is something special.
