Art of Noise – Il pleure

#046 – ’17 week 24

The track above is an interesting song where the band is trying to reinterpret a classical piece of music into their personal view or with actual ways of playing musics or genres.

The main idea of the whole album is somehow a tribute to Claude Debussy with a heavy touch of electro music (mostly drum ‘n’ bass behaviour) and this track is a good example of what Art of Noise were able to do (and that as well… nice work with reverb BTW).
You can also view it as a background music with a mix of classical and electro sound…

Whatever, I really find this track interesting for this various flavors and I hope you could find your way to listen to it!


PropellerHeads – SpyBreak!

#018 – ’16 week 48

And here comes a famous track who illustrated the also famous lobby scene in the first Matrix movie.
This scene is so recognizable that the soundtrack was a kind of signature now.

Musically the song is somehow what FatBoy Slim could do with heavy usage of samples and loops. Very catchy to me.

By the way, many other tracks from this album were used for various purposes.

The Prodigy – Voodoo People

#015 – ’16 week 45

Here is a well-known song from a well-known band (from end of ’90, ok!).

This is a bunch a good ideas with a huge potential of remixes, ambiances, covers…
What is really great with this song is it’s full of gimmicks everywhere, mixed into a very strong and powerful song and with great production as well.

When the song and the album were released, it was a huge success for both and nowadays the song is still very efficient to listen to!
