Patrick Cowley, who produced the original, was a dance music genius.
Another Section 25 remix, this one (mostly) removing vocals I didn’t like and focusing on a nice groove.
A cover of the Kraftwerk song, with John Felthous. Originally arranged for RUR.
A remix of the Hall & Oates classic. I had forgotten what a great groove it had at the beginning until I heard it at a wedding recently. So I had to extend out that groove and then do some chopping and filtering on the rest.
I originally recorded this as an instrumental in 2001, but when I started working with John Felthous and RUR, I asked him to come up with vocals for it. I’m not sure what his lyrics are actually about, but they always get stuck in my head.
Had to give this song another remix, featuring the killer 808 loop from Stephen Morris’s Retrofit remix front and center.
Remix of one of Section 25’s best-known (and most-sampled) tracks. I combined a couple of the original mixes with some great grooves from Stephen Morris’s recent remix.
Inspired by Patrick Cowley’s “Right on Target” and its use of the cowbell. Should have a vocal part other than the robotish vocal sound, but I never wrote or recorded one.
The lyrics were inspired by an especially poetic spam email, and I’m not quite sure what it became.
A techno-ized cover of the Depeche Mode song.
I took two minute-long tracks from Section 25’s album “Nature + Degree” and spun them out into this.
A technoed-up version of Yaz’s “Goodbye Seventies”.
Not really a remix of “Sunglasses at Night”, but a heavy borrowing. My goal was a to create a track with a nice groove that would seem vaguely familiar when played out but then become really familiar as the track went on.
More beat-heavy remix of the Rachel Stevens song, highlighting the trademark distorted 808.
Remix of the great Rachel Stevens song.
A cover of the New Order track off of “Movement”.
A vocal song with lyrics and arrangement inspired by early New Order (working off of one of my favorite Sumner lines ever, “here I am in a house full of doors and no exits”). One of few songs I’ve ever written original lyrics for. Also by far the shortest song I’ve ever recorded, at a radio-friendly 3:32.
Supposed to be a song about a intelligent machine and its angst about its existence, but I never wrote or recorded vocals.
This song combines three rare things for me: vocals I sang, lyrics I wrote, and layered melodies with pop-song structure. The basic song came together fairly quickly, but it took a while to finish the writing and get all the vocals recorded.
