Lou Reed - Walk on the wild siteWhat can I say, A true popclassic. The original version features only few instuments, mainly Bass and drums.
The reverb effect of the female vocals starting in the distance and coming up close was also used for the additional sax solos in the beginning en end. The rhythm track gets support from a funkydrummer loop. Suzanne Vega pops by for some vocal bits and one of James Brown's human beatboxers completes this funky walk on the wild side. (Saxsolo by Gerbrand Westveen)

Dominator vs Africa Bambatta : BambonitatorThese are a couple of totally different tracks.
Human Resource : Dominator was a progressive techno track at the time, Afrika Bambaataa fitted in the hiphouse trend, and the organ bits from Gypsy Woman are again something completely different.Wat brings them together are the fact that they are in the same musical key.Was not Was's Walk the dinosaur completed the mix.
This is a case where the sum is more then the parts. Bambaataa's catchy raps combine excelently with Dominators techno synths, and Crystal Water's Organ from Gypsy Woman brings some relaxing moments to this mix.
Get up and Dance, and enjoy !

Queen/Genesis - Mama will rock youQueen - We will rock you
Genesis - Mamma
With a little bit of Bohemian Rapsody at the start.
The minimix combines these two tracks as they have the same BPM and partially also the same tonal key. The combination of these 2 rock classics amount s to more then the mere sum of the parts.
The second part of the "we will rock you" chorus is "instrumental" as the keys of the 2 tracks otherwise would clash.
The minimix was originally made in the Akai DD1000. The 2 tracks were loaded from CD and Queen was slightly time-stretched to match the tempo of Genesis' Mamma

Crystal Waters - Gypsy WomanThe original version was a huge hit, starting in the clubs, and later crossing over to radio. It has one of the most pounding basedrumms ever combined with a daring organ intro, and a very very very catching sing-along hook. La da dee, la da da.
To complement this perfect summernight in spring I bring you this remix, with extra total-summer-feel-crickets and beautiful extra guitar parts giving the track a more Mediterranean feel
