Gossip’s debut album, Standing in the Way of Control, produced great singles (that largely seem to be forgotten… for now at least). All of those singles produced an array of interesting remixes by some of my favourite producers.
Tiga’s take on ‘Yr Mangled Heart’ is pretty out there. The track starts with a low key steady beat, a faint steam-train whistle and Beth Ditto’s bombastic vocals. The beat becomes slightly more complex in the second verse, but the instrumentation is second fiddle to Ditto’s vocals.
After the four minute mark, something drastically shifts and this remix becomes an electro monster (complete with Tiga himself announcing “conga break”).
