Gang Gang Dance - Mindkilla (Lee 'Scratch' Perry Remix) [MP3]

Gang Gang Dance have been remixed by dub legend Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, which is pretty exciting. The end result is strong, with Perry adding his own vocals, reining in the track and stripping it back into a perky, bouncing rhythm, squiggling brightly, a touch off-kilter, and also pretty catchy.

Lee Perry had this to say about the remix:

“I did have a great fun in the studio in Negril (Jamaica) recreating the riddim. The ingeneers and people around also enjoyed the vibes and the great voice of Lizzi. All the blessings for the remix from LSP.”

And, Gang Gang Dance member Brian DeGraw had this:

“I feel blessed…like ACTUALLY blessed…to have made some form of musical communion with LSP. I think about him a lot in day to day life but never really imagined our paths would cross in any other way. And I really have to give it up for anyone who gets handed a song about fear and turns it into a club banger about eating cops. Perfect.”

4AD released Gang Gang Dance’s album ‘Eye Contact’ on 9th May 2011
