Goin’ Old School: SSQ, Jean Michel Jarre & Cyndi Lauper

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

The awesome pre-Stacey Q SSQ first with ‘Synthicide’ from 1983.

From 1984’s ‘Zooklook’ album, the 1985 single release of ‘Zoolookologie’ by the master Jean Michel Jarre.

Cyndi Lauper’s ‘The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough’ from 1984. Richard Donner directed the video. Oh shut up!

Awkoder re-edits Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper and Awkoder? How can this be anything but awesome? The French SynthWave guru has brought a little Nu-Disco to that table with this re-edit of Lauper’s hit ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’. It’s a really good choice for an edit, if you strip away all the cheese connotations the last two decades have dumped onto the original track, you’ll fine it;s an insanely funky Pop number with elements ripe for reMixing.

Sure a lot of people edit Disco tracks, but this right here is a masterclass in editing ‘80’s Pop hits. What Awkoder has done is pretty simple, but very effective. Subtly adding a few elements, beats and arpeggios, and chopping the original track just enough to give it a kick, and no so much it sounds ridiculous (as with so many attempts at edits) he;s given this classic track a shot in the arm and made it fit for peak time in your set!
