Weatherall Remix Friday Eight

A reader got in touch after last week's Weatherall Remix Friday with a couple of suggestions for future posts both of which are a) fairly obscure and b) ones I think I'll get to. This one fits in well with last week's Two Lone Swordsmen remix of Alter Ego's Mescal and with the pair Keith suggested. Le Patron Est Devenu Fou! (translation- The Boss Has Gone Mad!) was a track by French producer Super Discount (Etienne de Crecy) and appeared on his album, also titled Super Discount. A 7" single was released in July 1997 with a remix on the B-side by Two Lone Swordsmen. 

Le Patron Est Devenu Fou! (Two Lone Swordsmen Dub  Mix)

For this remix Andrew and Keith Tenniswood head further into a murky basement/ underwater world of their own making- dingy, poorly lit and full of smoke and the aroma of substances. Six minutes of bubbles, echo, delay, rattles, the throb of sub bass, a quicker tempo than it maybe at first seemed like it would have, little synth/ keyboards runs, space, bleeps, more echo, more delay- wonderfully textured and nuanced deep house dub.

Love it!

Brilliant. But then, what else would it be? I don't think I've ever heard the original version by Super Discount, though.
