Goldfrapp: Let it Take You (Forest of Bass remix)

Posted by Martin Poulter on 9 April 2008

This Doodz’n’Chyx exclusive is an essential listen for any fan of the glorious Goldfrapp, and a recommended listen for any music lover.

A DnC member using the moniker “CrashedInventors” has put online his own painstakingly constructed remix of “Let it Take You”. It’s on his MySpace profile, so you can listen online straight away, or download the MP3 if you’re a registered MySpace user.

The minimalist original, which uses little more than Alison’s gorgeous vocal and some piano chords, has been sped up quite a bit, and augmented with a repeating bassline and with layers of abstract percussion that ebb and flow over the course of the song, adding to (rather than overwhelming) the blissful feel of the piece. “Let it Take You” is good advice indeed.

Fear your socks

Posted by misterchristophe on 9 April 2008

If you have spent the lonely nights wondering how many women between 15-64 have suffered sock-related accidents in the home then visit the Web site of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, which has the useful feature of allowing you to query the home and leisure accident statistics.

For example, did you know that in 2002 308 people suffered ear-plug related trauma in the home.
Fascinating, I say.
