About this item
Mule Musiq's in house production crew come through with their second release this week, featuring the vocal talents of Miyako Koda of Dip In The Pool fame. Following their cover version of Ohnuki Taeko’s "Carnaval", Studio Mule got back in the practice room and rocked out a fresh version of Japanese new wave classic “Shinzo No Tibia" by Mariah. Though the new version stays relatively faithful to the original, extended and unhinged bridges, softer sound design and brand new Japanese (the original is in Armenian) by Miyako Koda, make this a welcome alternative to Mariah's masterpiece. On the flip, Kuniyuki takes full control of the desk for a dub version inspired by Adrian Sherwood's remix of Depeche mode. Stripped back and drawn out with a whole load of delay and echo, the new interpretation is a darker take on the track with nods to Tubeway Army and Razormaid.
Patrick says: Studio Mule do their version thing to perfection here, offering a new cover of this Mariah classic, featuring the vocal talents of Miyako Koda. Flip it for a Sherwood inspired dub mix (brilliant) and you'll understand why Yasuaki Shimizu was delighted with their efforts.
