Demis Roussos – Midnight Is The Time I Need You (fingertrouble’s Psychodelidisco mix)

disco-psycheness-pt3

This is a real Friday/Saturday jam, my remix of the long-forgotten Demis Roussos (sadly we lost him last year) classic from 1975, ‘Midnight Is The Time I Need You’.

When I heard this tune as with the Midnight Stud I not only fell in love with a dusty disco classic, I thought it needed to be longer as it was only ever a 7″ length track, more DJ-friendly, warped to the beat, remastered and general shininess added.

I listened to all the re-edits out there and found them good but a bit lacking…this indeed started as a re-edit, but I just kept adding stuff, so it’s the most remix-y remix I’ve done (usually I try and be more like edits, fairly transparent in what I add, mostly about structure and drums/bass)

You can download this and other Psychodelidisco mixes on my Bandcamp.

Final Mashups #5 – Star Wars Gurls (Katy Perry vs Meco)

Spin that glitterball death star! In time for the new film (although completely by accident, long before Lucas was a twinkle in Disney’s eye, these mashups were started 5-10 years ago) here are the first of two Star Wars mashups.

Star Wars Gurls is Meco’s Star Wars goes space disco via California Gurls with Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg.

I’ve always had a bad feeling about this, it’s been a real disturbance in the Force over the years and probably still is a bucket of bolts, due to strange minor bits in the Meco track. In the end I had to use the Melodyne trial to force the acapella into key…Use the Force Luke! Well we know mashups shouldn’t be forced, but I’ve always wanted to release this, so treat it as a bit of fun. Still will make the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs!

Talking of fun, the next mashup should be that…

Thanks to Jez Biggs, Ian Lloyd and Lee Prince for help making this mashup.
