jmtd → log → Belfast (David Holmes Remix)
This morning’s record to start the day is David Holmes’s remix of “Belfast”, by Orbital: the latest cover mount record with Electronic Sound magazine.
This, and several other new remixes are available on the recent compilation “30 Something” which, despite being yet another comp, I’ve found quite compelling.
An unusual decision by ES: they’ve split the remix across both sides, but kept the RPM at 45. I haven’t ran the numbers to figure out if they could have fit it on one side at 33, but even if they could perhaps it would be too compromised. Quite a trade-off with splitting the track!
Orbital are embarking on a new UK tour soon and play Newcastle in March. They’ve got a new album out in February.
