[Audio] Mark Reeder reMixes Westbam & Bernard Sumner’s ‘She Wants’

 

Westbam

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.

[Video] Westbam & Richard Butler of The Psychedelic Furs’ ‘You Need The Drugs’

 

Westbam feat. Richard Butler   You Need The Drugs   YouTube

This is the video for German techno legend Westbam’s new single. featuring the vocals of Richard Butler of The Psychedelic Furs fame. You Need The Drugs is a moody and beautiful electronic soundscape, driven by metronome military beats, toped with Butler’s impassioned lament.

The video is actually part of a documentary being but together by Joerg Hoppe. Titled B-Movie, the film will portray West Berlin in the 80s using found footage from the period and our friend Mark Reeder’s point-of-view, that of a Brit living in cold war Berlin.

You Need The Drugs is taken from Westbam’s forthoming new album God’s Road, with features more collaboration with the likes of New Order’s Ber­nard Sum­ner, Hugh Corn­well of The Stranglers and Iggy Pop.
