Paparazzi  


Its my day to post and I couldn't get to my recording rig, so I'm putting up an edit I did a while ago for a set that never happened that I just found on my mp3 player and put up from this borrowed computer. Paparazzi were a short lived British New Wave band that released a couple of singles on MCA before breaking up and having their debut album unfortunately shelved, although there is a bootleg recording of it floating around. Their 12" 'Stop' has some great synth work, I stripped out some of the vocal bridges and chorus lines to make it a little more compatible for contemporary dance floors, but still left the instrumental parts of the arrangement pretty much as was.

    I've been going nuts about this track lately (the original). Downloading this now. Thanks for the remix! Such an overlooked song, so I am glad someone other than me is paying it some props.

    I'm gonna be putting up some comps of retro dance tracks on my blog soon. Come on by sometime.

    Respect,
    Derek
