[Download] Nude Disco & BroKen DJ’s reMix Laura Branigan’s ‘Self Control’

 

Laura Branigan

Here’s something a little tasty to start the week with, a slick reworking of one of our favourite tunes of all time. Whether you’re on Team Branigan or Team Raf there’s no denying that Self Control is an absolute classic. For us the debate generally rests on whether we’re in an ElectroPop mood or an Italo mood, but now we’ve got a contender for when we’re in the mood for some straight-up dancefloor vibes courtesy of this reMix from Nude Disco and BroKen DJ’s of the Laura Branigan version of Self Control.

Falling neatly between the realms of reMix and completely reworked Edit, Nude Disco and BroKen DJ’s take on Self Control distils the tune down to it’s most crowd pleasing elements. Playing up the Italo, but neatly slotting it into their crisp and bouncy South London Disco sound, these guys hype that classic bassline for all it’s worth and give it a little syncopated swing. Bristling with uplifting synths and Balearic purcussion, this reMix uses the original’s vocals and arrangements sparingly; but when it does drop some of the songs memorable moments, it does so to maximum effect.

Goin’ Old School: Laura Branigan (or) Raf – Self Control

Straight from 1984, here is both Laura Branigan and co-wirter Raf’s versions of ‘Self Control’, both blew up in Europe that year but only Branigan’s made any impact across the Atlantic. I can never decide which version I prefer but both are definitely better than the subsequent covers.
