I Believe In You

reinterpretations...


I Believe In You

The 2006 smash hit song, produced to a longer track running-time.




Voxless C

reinterpretations...


The first of a two-track project, based on two synthesizer ideas, taken from a song titled: Confusion, drawing inspiration from the classic Arthur Baker 1983 b-side production.

This, of course, was the follow-up single to a certain milestone of electronic-based music.




The Rush

reinterpretations...


A reinterpretation of a 2009 instrumental track.




After The Rain

reinterpretations...


A reinterpretation of Before The Rain
- the closing track to the 2010 (digital) and 2011 (CD) album, All You Need Is Now.

Further extended and updated versions of this popular track project could happenn in 2022.




Learning To Trust

reinterpretations...


Learning To Trust

This is the first time I have attempted to part compose and produce a song that requires a vocal performance. The original Precious single can be found on the 2005 Depeche Mode album Playing The Angel. My version includes a reinterpretation of the instrumental MID section, together with vocals from a gentleman called Michael George, with it being mixed by the ever-reliable Andy Haldane.
Since then, many more remixes have been completed and more are in progress.
'til the release, here's a few highlights to what is already complete:

(synth-pop) E.P. Track #2:
Dominatrix E.P. version

(synth-pop) E.P. Track #4:
The Frixion E.P. remix

(synth-pop) E.P. Track #5:
Rob Dust E.P. remix


Reprographic

reinterpretations...


An instrumental reinterpretation of the first song released under the name: Depeche Mode - Photographic.

Reprographic 3G Main mix

Reprographic 2G edit




Loved How You Chose Me

reinterpretations...


A reinterpretation very loosely based on that classic opening synth-lead, created by the electronic producer Michael Woods.




Voxless I

reinterpretations...


The second of a two-track project, based on two synthesizer ideas, taken from a song titled: Confusion, drawing inspiration from the classic Arthur Baker 1983 b-side production.

Hopefully this will surface soon.




For An Angel

reinterpretations...


I was too late to help out with the 2009 remixes of this popular trance anthem, but I hope you like the tracks Andy Haldane and AphelionX made possible.





Shades Of Androgyny

reinterpretations...


Originally the climax to the 1997 Simple Minds album Neapolis, a reinterpretation project inspired by the end of the instrumental track.

It has so far been remixed by Danny Nightingale, AphelionX and Dima.

Track #1
Shades Of Androgyny Original demo Danny Nightingale remix

Track #2
Shades Of Androgyny AphelionX First edit

Track #3
Shades Of Androgyny Danny Nightingale remix

Track #4
Shades Of Androgyny AphelionX Second edit

Track #5
Shades Of Androgyny Dima's remix

Track #6
Shades Of Androgyny AphelionX Extended remix


Originally the climax to the 1997 Simple Minds album Neapolis, a reinterpretation project inspired by the end of the instrumental track.

It has so far been remixed by Danny Nightingale, AphelionX and Dima.


The Floating Mothership

reinterpretations...



Originally The Floating World, a Vince Clarke remix from the Glaswiegen's first Neon Lights cover album.

The track being (as we know it): Homosapien, written by punk-rocker Pete Shelley originally appearing on this cover album recorded by Simple Minds in 2001, with Vince Clarke's remix on a CD2 (single, 2nd b-side track) release from the Cry title track a year later.

The Floating World would then become an instrumental track in it's own right on the 2002 Cry album - under the name of "Simple Minds".


Track #1
The Floating Mothership Original mix

Track #2
The Floating Mothership Dima's edit

Track #3
The Floating Mothership Andy Haldane remix

Track #4
The Floating Mothership Danny Nightingale remix

Track #5
The Floating Mothership Andy Haldane chillout

Track #6
The Floating Mothership Danny Nightingale dub


Confused?!?

Well, the voxless inspired me to rework it in 2005, using the most basic of computer music programs: Cubase VST (version 5). The program had very little to work with, but it did have that wonderful warm pad (synthesizer sound) that's great for string chords (atmospheric, chord structure sound that rigidly holds the listener's attention clearly throughout the duration of the track).

More news to follow.


Visions Of Gold

reinterpretations...



A reinterpretation of the title track to the 1982 Simple Minds album: New Gold Dream.


Track #1
Visions Of Gold (Original mix)

Observant music fans may recognise a War-cover Mark O'Toole bassline part, recorded via a 'Fairlight' synthesizer produced by Trevor Horn, on behalf of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, in a 2003 college demo version of this project.




The Party's Over

reinterpretations...


The Party's Back On Again E.P.

The Party's Still Not Over (Danny Nightingale's trance remix)

My first reinterpretation project: The Party's Back On Again was an attempt to add something new to the 1982 Talk Talk debut album title track: The Party's Over.

More recently, I have asked British producer Danny Nightingale to remix a new attempt at reinterpreting The Party's Over - called: The Party's Not Over Yet.

Then he remixed a harder, pacier demo, titled: The Party's Still Not Over, with even more success.




Take The Palaver Out

tracks...


Take The Palaver Out E.P.
A fresh instrumental, very loosely borrowing from a classic 1982 Dundee-originating intro.




City Girl (During The Day)
(Otis Brown, US DJ/producer)

reinterpretations


City Girl (During The Day)
An early classic from a DJ and producer whose been in the business for some time...


City Girl (During The Day)
