I didn’t release it then cos I hate the Biebster but like the instrumental of ‘Peaches’ and love the Sam Smith song, so another dark uptempo happy/sad bittersweet groover with cheesy pop – with extra Donnie Darko spoken word, cos that’s where Sam Smith got those bits.
OK so I might not be an Outkast obsessive but I am a Peaches fanatic and have used her in at least 4 mashups before now – but none as weird as this. It came to me where I was working at the time there was a 60’s golden oldie station and Roy Orbison’s ‘You Got It’ came on…and it shows you my warped mind that my first response was ‘that’s the same beat as Peaches’ ‘Set it Off’….so Peaches n’ Orbs was born.
It was played (badly by me) at Bastard in February 2004, it went down well despite my nervously bad DJing…I have become slightly better at it since then. 😀

I have to say I’m indebted to solcofn for the original idea of using the original instrumenal of Ghetto Musick with Peaches; this came out of a session of demonstrating how I’d do it (I wasn’t intending to create a new track, just suggest a different more clubbier way of doing it) and accidentally came up with this club stomper. Thanks sol! Owe ya one 😀 Ghetto Sister Peach (aka Ghetto Peaches)
