The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
Don’t know if you’ve figured out yet, but I’m a big fan of former UK production outfit Breeder, so much so that I’ve featured their originals and remixes several times in the past. As you can see, it’s happening again, but first, let’s get into a little back story.
I suppose it’s only natural to start with the introductions, and that’s to say the ones who’ve created the source material are Barry David Jamieson and Jonathan Sutton of Evolution fame. Yes, they produced under many different monikers, including Arrakis, Escape, JB, Mendel’s Discoveries and Bluefish, but their most famous alias was, as mentioned before Evolution.
They’ve released many a material, like Came Outa Nowhere (their debut EP), Love Thing, Jaywalkin’ and several others, not mentioning the singles under their other aliases. Also, rather strangely, their debut album Unnatural Selection was released under Nettwerk America (the American division of Canadian imprint Nettwerk), which meant it was rather difficult to find in the duo’s native UK.
I did change my decision on which of the singles from the back catalogue to focus on, but I eventually got to their 1999 release on Fluid Recordings, entitled Phoenix. As I’m sure you’re you’re aware from the title, I’ve chosen the Breeder remix over the original, for reasons that shall become apparent as you listen to the sample below.
See you next week.🙂
