Playing tracks by
+ Various, Real Life, Ice-T, Billy Idol, A4 & Short K and more.
Originally, I planned to do some work on the original 12inch of "Always" because it's my favorite Real Life song but even the 12inch version only stretches to around 5 minutes, so I chopped and put back together again until I got a good few extra minutes. As usual I got bored with it and played around with my other Real Life songs and was unexpectedly challenged, as the songs are around 150 BPM! So I opted for just mixing in Catch me I'm falling and stretched it beyond my original plan so it's about 12 minutes long.Was inspired to drag out the old recordings of American Top 40 from 1983 and had a play with some samples and Acapella B-Sides from Ice-T and long lost but well loved Old School Hip Hop to clash with the Retro and there you have it.Maybe next time I'll put a bit more time in and get it JUST RIGHT, maybe keep these handy to fix up the way I want them to sound, given the patience!!
