Blind Vision (Honey Dijon Remixes)

    Honey Dijon was asked the remix her “favourite band” Blancmange and she chose the magnificent disco oddity, 1983 hit ‘Blind Vision.’ The result is a stripped back, bumping houser that sounds as much Green Velvet as it does Talking Heads. Urgent percussion and oscillating synths drive things forward, allowing a full Blancmange vocal to unfold aloft to great effect. Also features the original and sought after extended mix.

    Living On The Ceiling (Roman Flügel Remixes)

      Roman Flügel remixes the cult 1980s classic that is ‘Living On The Ceiling’ and the result is a killer, off-kilter slice of club-focussed machine funk that contains the same wonderfully bizarre cocktail of traits that Blancmange always boasted in spades. Eerie and schizophrenic but also both bright and triumphant. Also features the original and sought after extended mix.

      “When I was asked to put my hands on the original tracks of Blancmange I was instantly excited. They were one of my favourite Bands when I grew up as a teenager in the 80’s. Listening to their music walking around with my Walkman back then was adventurous. Mainly because I was already in love with the aesthetics of synthesisers and drum machines. But also because it was unusual pop music with an extraordinary energy that made it in the charts. Remixing a favourite band is challenging but I’ve tried to keep the free spirits and playfulness in my mix that makes Blancmange still so special after all these years” - Roman Flügel

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Andy says: Happy Mondays lit up the late 80s with their barely contained, shambolic but groovey take on punk-funk and god knows what else! They were, in short, totally original. In frontman Shaun Ryder they had a complete one-off who label boss Tony Wilson famously compared to W.B.Yeats! These early twelves (85-88) are presented here as four different coloured vinyl, remastered from the original analogue tapes and housed in a 300 gram carton slipcase.

        Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida Black Kids comprise of brother and sister Reggie and Ali Youngblood, Dawn Watley, Owen Holmes and Kevin Snow. Produced by Bernard Butler at West Heath studios, London over five weeks this spring, "Partie Traumatic" comprises of ten exquisitely refreshing pop songs including the singles "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You" and "Hurricane Jane". Other highlights include the recently penned "I'm Making Eyes At You" and album closer "Look At Me (When I Rock Wichoo)".
