Featuring my recent unofficial mixes of Survivor, Kylie and ABBA. Also, I dug up some oldies for you, and here they are with a short explanation:
Diana Ross & Lionel Richie: Endless Love (Matt Pop Twinkly Mix) Not to be confused with the mash-up I did of this with New Order, the Twinkly Mix is sweet, beat-free and…twinkly.
A Flock Of Seagulls – Wishing (Matt Pop Mix) My favourite song by this band. I did this mix around the year 2000.
José E Los Reyes – Lailola (Matt Pop Mix) A little-known bootleg by me of a song that was a hit in Holland in 1983. José E Los Reyes later morphed into the Gipsy Kings.
Kelis – Milkshake (Matt Pop Mix) This has been on YouTube for a while, many years ago. I still think it’s quite cute, if a little ‘light’.
Madonna, Kraftwerk + My Mine – Ray Of Hypnotic Taschenrechner (Matt Pop Mix) Title says it all really, doesn’t it?
Mika – Relax (Matt Pop Mix) – A few of you requested this. I still enjoy it, too.
The Cure – Caterpillar (Matt Pop Mix) From my earliest remixing days. I find it a bit amateurish now, but at the same time it does have its charm. Almost didn’t make it onto this compilation, but I thought I’d throw it in for variation anyway.
Vanessa Williams – Save The Best For Last (Matt Pop Mix) I was pleasantly surprised by the positive response this got when Jason Davis put it on his Facebook page. Again, one of my earliest remixes.
Yazoo – Get Set (Matt Pop’s Restoration Mix) The long lost Yazoo track that finally got a (digital) release in 2010. It had been the theme song for BBC1 TV show “Get Set For Summer” in 1983. I did my mix a few years before its official release, using the audio from video transfers, hence the tape hiss and the obvious tape artifacts. At that time, Yazoo fans were convinced that Get Set would never see the light of day, so I set out to restore the existing poor quality chunks of the song into a coherent, better sounding version. I had to recreate many of the synth parts to fill in the blanks. You can download these mixes here. (link will expire December 7th!) Download link
