Fresh from last week’s exclusive Chemical Jump interview and mixtape, which garnered 1800+ plays in less than a week, White Girl Lust presents a top secret bootleg house dub of “Mesopotamia” – which was included in the mix. The original B-52’s track was the result of an arguably failed recording session with David Byrne as the producer. Tensions were high during these sessions and ultimately the idea of a full album was scraped. In our opinion (as well as many other people) the friction injected just enough nervous funk into the Athens New Wave band to be deemed a classic.
Here the founding duo of Solid Bump Records strip the original composition to it’s essence and reconstruct the track as a stomping dub for the dancefloor. The result is too reserved to be called “big room” but far too massive to be a categorized a “beard stroker” edit. Let’s split the difference and call it “Mid-Sized House”.
“OH SH*T SON” – Ghosts of Venice (Defected/ Strictly Rhythm)
“√+” – Acid Jacks (Idiot House)
“Really am loving the stripped-backed sound of this!” – Bit Thief (Plant Music)
“Love it! My favorite B-52’s song of all time.” – Johnny Dynell (infamous 80’s disco DJ of M.U.D.D. Club & Danceteria. Tensnake recently remixed his CLASSIC 80’s hit “Jam Hot”)
