Another Section 25 remix, this one (mostly) removing vocals I didn’t like and focusing on a nice groove.

I Can’t Go For That (Perkowitz Mix)

I Can’t Go For That (Perkowitz Mix)

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 Know When I Look Good (Vocal)

I Know When I Look Good (Vocal)

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.

Into the Groove (Perkowitz Mix)

Into the Groove (Perkowitz Mix)

I had forgotten what good grooves this song had. Plus great use of the 707/727 combo.

Jump (for my Love)

Jump (for my Love)

The Pointer Sisters sure knew how to create a groove. I just took some of my favorite bits of this song and played around with them.

Jump Jump Around Jump

Jump Jump Around Jump

Kriss Kross and House of Pain play surprisingly well together, but getting Van Halen into the party was a little harder. It was worth the effort though.

Looking from a Hilltop (Perkowitz Dub)

Looking from a Hilltop (Perkowitz Dub)

Had to give this song another remix, featuring the killer 808 loop from Stephen Morris’s Retrofit remix front and center.

Looking from a Hilltop (Perkowitz Mix)

Looking from a Hilltop (Perkowitz Mix)

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.

The lyrics were inspired by an especially poetic spam email, and I’m not quite sure what it became.

The synth line on this song just demanded a remix. I had trouble making the rest of it work, but it’s worth it for the synth line.

Basically the same as my first remix, but with the vocals left untreated, so people can sing along when you play it.

Time

Time

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.

Walkin Out

Walkin' Out

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.
