This has been a long time comin. I first heard a version of this remix back in August or September last year and I’ve played it in nearly every DJ set I’ve done since then. It’s certainly one of my favourite remixes of the last 18 months. May Kay’s never sounded as varied, Jape’s never done such a banging remix and it totally changes the vibe of the original in a subtle manner. When it lifts towards a climax with one minute left, it’s something else. I’m glad to finally debut this to you.
This remix will be released on a six-track bonus disc accompanying the Apes special festival edition of their debut album out Friday 17th July. The six tracks are ‘Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues’, ‘Knucklehead’, ‘Telephone The Real Ham Jackson’, ‘Canhead’, ‘This Is Like The Time Jody Didn’t Know What Cunnilingus Was’, ‘Snore Bore Whore (Spherical Mix)’ and ‘Battlestations (Jape remix’). If you already have the album you can buy the bonus disc from the band’s website standalone.
Australian blogging resumes shortly.
