Sunday silly Song – 105 – Laurie Anderson (feat. M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade) O superman

A track that was originally from 1981, featuring vocoder and loops and no drums whatsoever. (inspired by Massenet’s aria “O Souverain” from “Le Cid”, performed by Charles Holland, thanks Discogs)

M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade released this as a couple of twelves in October 2008, adding beats and bass but keeping the originals strange narrative. Contains half a dozen long mixes

Matthias John’s mix is quite Tech stomp.

The “Cubans Rework” is basically an instrumental extended it out to over 14 minutes. Remixed by Frank Heinrich.

Audio Fly (Anthony Middleton and Luca Saporito) keep it quite deep, with some clock chimes and rattling percussion.

Felix Da Housecat gives it more of a commercial House edge, Adding piano and strings for atmosphere and a twanging bass after an extended build up.

The final mix is by German Techno DJ Robag Wruhme, Tech House beats with some light piano to finish.

Some very loud Fred rips or steals )not all) plus the original version so you can compare and contrast, however he has just sent me some vinyl rips in FLAC and WAV. files and they are sounding good.

One thought on “Sunday silly Song – 105 – Laurie Anderson (feat. M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade) O superman”

  1. As a huge Laurie Anderson fan I was intrigued to see what these remixes might serve up. Bit sad they weren’t overly adventurous, but if they came on in a club I probably zone out with a smile.
