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.

Martin’s Art (4): Untitled dance music

Posted by Martin Poulter on 24 February 2007

Day four and it’s time for something else from the recent archive. This techno/house piece, entirely created in software, still needs another layer of sound on top of it (and a title) but it’s very different from a lot of the stuff I do. It has been stewing for nearly a year and I’d appreciate comments on it from those of you who still do proper nightclubbing. Listen right now:

Or download the MP3.
