UB40 - Don't Break My Heart (Boat Drinks! Re-Edit)

"...I'm giving you my heart, go on take it, please be careful not to break it..." Ali Campbell

I have this on 12" vinyl. I heard it on the radio and it made remember what a great track it is. So I went down to the vaults and dug it out. The Extended Version is terrible! About 3 minutes 30 in it segues from one version to another and the beats clash and it's just a mess.
So what I wanted to do was do a true extended mix of it. Drawing out the groove and riding it for a bit while keeping the dubby edge it has intact. I'm really pleased with the end result : )

Blur - Battle (Boat Drinks! Version Excursion)

"...keep love about..." Damon Albarn

I heard "Battle" on a Blur documentary "No Distance Left To Run" and then realised it was on their album "13" which I already had. Was just one of those things when you hear something in a track and you think "...that'll sound great if I do this or that..."

...so I did.

Gorillaz - White Flag (Boat Drinks! Version Excursion)

"...no castaway, no survivor..." Kano

I just really liked the album version of this track so decided to see what I could do on a mix of it. It features The Lebanese Orchestra for Oriental Arabic Music and a tiny bit of Kano.
The biggest challenge on this was all the chopping and time-stretching it took to speed it up. I love when the break drops in the breakdown two-thirds in. It's a little bit messy but the rawness of it kind of works...

Boat Drinks! - The Mixtape - Vol. 3

"...can I get ...any of you c**ts ...a drink?..." Ed

I wanted to do mix exclusively using tracks from film soundtracks. I imagine it will be the first of many, I have so much great stuff to use. There is something magic that happens when you put the right piece of dialogue on top of the right piece of music...

Reasons To Be Kitch (Boat Drinks! Treatment)

"...why don't you get back into bed?..." The Blockheads

I always really liked the groove from Ian Dury & The Blockhead's "Reasons To Be Cheerful, Part 3" so I wanted work with that in some way. Then I kind of stumbled across using the synth hook from Tim Green's excellent "Kitch In"....and so this mid-tempo chugger was born... kind of... : )

Zarif - "Over" (Boat Drinks! Re-jig)

"...take a step and slide it back..."

I did a couple of mixes for Zarif, a couple of housey ones on her first single "Let Me Back" which went down really well. Then I got asked to do a mix on her next single "Over". They wanted house mixes to capitalize on the success of the mixes of "Let Me Back" but I really like the idea of the really fast almost drum & bass groove (sounds kind of motown too in a way) of this mix. I think they really liked it but they wanted from me was something house for the clubs, so I did a couple of others, which went down equally well too.... so I don't think this ever got used. Shame really, I like this one so much more.

"...hello ...I'm looking for balloons..." Rosine

This mix originally began with Elmer Bernstein's "Intro" from the soundtrack of Animal House, but when I tried to upload it to my Soundcloud page I instantly received this reply...

"...Hi Boat Drinks! ...your upload "Boat Drinks! - The Mixtape - Vol. 2" may include content that is owned or licensed by Geffen (Intro (Soundtrack)) and has been made inaccessible on SoundCloud by request of the rightsholder..."

Shout The Message! (Boat Drinks! Treatment)

"...sometimes I think I'm goin' insane, I swear I might hijack a plane! ..." Grandmaster Flash

Big fan of both Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five and Tears For Fears. I think this one was simply one of those moments when I was listening to "Shout" and heard the "The Message" rapping along in my head. It was then just a case of hunting down an a cappella of "The Message" and making my own instrumental of "Shout" (mainly plundered from the "US Remix"). There's a few sneaky bits of additional production in there too : )

Ride The Revolution (Boat Drinks! Treatment)

"...well you can bump and grind, if it's good for your mind..." Marc Bolan

Never been much of a fan of Marc Bolan or T-Rex beyond knowing a few of their songs. I had always been aware of this particular track, but I think it was Baby Ford's cover of it in 1989 that kind of peaked my interest. I liked the way whole ethos behind the song related to the times. "The Summer Of Love" and all that.

As far as this "mash up" goes, I think I heard it on the radio and thought it was ripe for a treatment of some sort. I'd always loved the drum break at the start of Ride's "Dreams Burn Down" off their album 1990 album "Burn" (courtesy of my big brother) and recognised a similar swing in the rhythm to T-Rex and away I went : )

Nitzer Ebb - "Join In The Chant" (Boat Drinks! Re-Edit)

"...Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!..."

My very first actual re-edit. Was always a big favourite of mine from way back in the 'balearic' early nineties. I was just looking to simplify it a little really... as well as give it a bit more "cahones" : )

Boat Drinks! - The Mixtape - Vol. 1

"...it's a sledgehammer..." Pedro

I love doing these mixes. They take bloody ages to piece together but it's really satisfying listening back to them weeks, months later. I travel a lot and listen to things to ease the boredom. Listening solely to music can just cause endless pontificating on what to play, audiobooks just send me to sleep and I really enjoy listening to comedy. I'm also a collector of any weird and wonderful audio I can get my grubby mitts on....

....so I thought I'd try and shoehorn them all together in one place : )
