Duran Duran ‎– Master Mixes (US 2 x 12″)


When a promo is not a promo ? Clever marketing by the company and half a dozen decent mixes on this “promo”. In time for the US leg of the Strange Behaviour Tour in June and July, Masterdisc released this Master Mixes collection, compiled unused remixes from their 1986 album “Notorious”, as well as a further mixes of “Skin Trade” and a megamix called “Notoriousaurus Rex”. Employing the likes Justin Strauss and Murray Elias (edits by Tuta Aquino) – on “American Science”, Curtis Mantronik on “Vertigo”, full on drum machines! Jose “Chep” Nunez and Daniel Abraham deal with “Skin Trade”

Duran were certainly going for cutting edge dance sounds. A fun megamix encapsulates the DD sound of the time. Some fierce edits too!
