Nip and Tuck series, Dr Technofetichiste has been quite active doing plastic surgery on old disco tracks.
Yes, you heard it right: Funkytown, that old old old classic from the late 70's. I could see exactly where to operate, the track is 30 but with a bit of touch here and there, it will feel 3 month old :)
The underlying track, 500 degrees, is a modern house track, with good synth and excellent beat support. It is discreet and harmonic. The harmonic mix works easily, not too busy which is good. The song structure of funkytown is a little strange with those breakdowns (not a big fan by the way) and I had to do 3 cuts on the modern track to match the old song structure but nothing too dramatic.
The result, 500 degrees in Funkytown, lifts up the old classic. It is a simple mix, as I mentioned not too busy. Funkytown dominates, 500 degrees' melody modulates the wording which gives it a fresh feel. Some parts work surprising well. Enjoy.
You can find it here.
PS: I got about 20 already in the can, I will be doling them out bit and bit and if you ask nicely.
