It’s been while since we heard from our friend Mark Reeder, but the Electro pioneer has been keeping himself busy. Once again getting all up in German Techno legend Westbam’s business, Reeder works his classic SynthPop magic on She Wants, a track of Westbam’s featruing vocal duties from Mr. Bernard Sumner of New Order.
Taken from Westbam’s star studded current album Götterstrasse, She Wants sees Sumner in full-on New Order evocative mode. Mark Redder serves up a beautifully produced timeless SynthPop backing, sumptuously rich in it’s sound, that fits Sumner perfectly. There’s even hints of New Order in the reMix, alongside an Acid squelch and early 80s machine beat. Like an 1984 Pop tune arranged by a mid-90s Techno producer by way of the second wave of EBM, Reeder makes this reMix and exciting dancefloor proposition that feels both new and old.
♫ Westbam & Bernard Sumner – She Wants (Mark Reeder’s Oldschool Radio reMix)
Well, now not only has it gone and got itself a video but also an amazing, analog bass pounding, reMix courtesy of CHEW LiPS. In the end result you can hear bits of New Order, bits of Hot Chip and bits of CHEW LiPS, it’s an odd mix, but very cool.
The track itself is an awesome 90’s House track, just listen to that piano and the 909 snares! When Bernard’s vocals kick it is it so distinctively him, kinda’ like a 90’s New Order reMix cut up with a Hot Chip track.
