MAGIC’S SONG OF THE WEEK
There’s so many hideous elements to this track, I’m not sure why it has such a power over me. I don’t believe in ‘guilty pleasures’, if you like something, you like it (and anyway, that whole schtick is just an excuse for people to go out listen to old crap, justified by a fake layer of irony (oh shut up you grumpy old sod (etc))).
Anyway, here is some old crap. My favourite eighties 12″ mix ever of all time ever. Using every trick available to the 1984 studio engineer.
Amazing weird drum FX, metallic up-octave pitch shift on the keyboard riff. Literally insane edits. Very unpleasant slap bass stabs.
Maybe it’s just that gear change, into the double time, that gets me. I don’t even really like the original.
Happy friday to you all!

Enjoy your friday!
