Fujiya & Miyagi - Remixes

Collection of remixes from the Electro Karaoke In The Negative Style album, from 2003 on Massive Advance.

I was gutted to miss this lot earlier in the year - I was all set to go and see them at Stereo then they cancelled at the last minute. When the show was rescheduled I couldn't make it. Maybe next year, eh guys?

Remix-wise, Weatherall and Tenniswood stay in tune with the Neu-style teutonic rhythms of the original, whilst adding loads of trademark noises over the top. Excellent stuff in my unbiased opinion.

Despite using possibly the worst moniker this side of Limp Bizkit, Wevie Stonder actually turns in a pretty good mix of a track which came in at under two minutes in its original form - some stuttery drums and plinky plonky noises adding to the synth/vocal combo of the original.

Pilote puts a nice shuffley drum over New Accounts Analysis and adds a beautiful synth riff over it - a great remix. The final track? Aye - check it out, dunno quite how to describe it but this whole thing is a great wee remix package, and worth exploring beyond the carrot of the TLS mix at the start.

Here's a Spotify playlist of the original versions of these four if you want to see just what's been done to the originals. Don't say I'm not good to you...
