Dan Reed Network – Ritual (US 12″)

Air Guitarists V Synthy Dance Floor Fillers

American Rawkers Dan Reed Network make a debut on here with a bizarre mix of electronics. From 1988 and with anonymous remixes it was produced by Bruce Fairbarn (but I’m not sure he did all the mixes.) There is a definite Prince influence about the way the technology was used. It certainly nothing like the normal radio version.

The B-side is even further away from their image. Full synth funk (again sounding very Prince-Like) with some soundbite samples. Unexpectedly cool!
