The second in this series is a history of many versions dating back to when Röyksopp ft Robyn’s ‘Girl and the Robot’ was current in 2009, mashing it with Blue Monday by New Order and Candi Staton’s You Got The Love…the problem sometimes is you do a mashup and it almost works but something about the acapella bugs you, in this case it’s being driven mad by the bells, the bells! from the Candi Staton original ‘You Got The Love’ acapella. I did toy with using Florence and the Machine’s version but one listen revealed how horribly out of tune she is so I wasn’t going to touch that with a bargepole.
Also in this case I did the demo and stupidly didn’t save that version, so about version 2 or 3 I actually preferred the original, with no way of going back – hence why I include the demo here, it’s less structured and rough but there was something about the production I preferred and had a lot of difficulty trying to recreate! Also included is the Dub version with no Candi Staton…which is the 3rd version, so the timeline is Demo – 1st version, Dub – 3rd version, the final version is 4th. A version excursion so to speak! I’d listen to the final 4th version first…
