Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry has remixed Gang Gang Dance’s ‘MindKilla’.
It seems an appropriate assignment for a man who killed his own mind many years ago. He’s stripped the tune down to its essence, adding his own digressive vocals to the brew.
“I did have a great fun in the studio in Negril (Jamaica) recreating the riddim,” he says. “The ingeneers and people around also enjoyed the vibes and the great voice of Lizzi. All the blessings for the remix from LSP.”
Gang Gang Dance’s Brian DeGraw is clearly over the moon:
“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.”
