Midnight Juggernauts – Memorium (Turkish Prison Dub Remix) (single) (Record Makers/Siberia Records)
Where the Midnight Juggernauts original sees the Aussie rock act continue their quest to fuse rock n’ roll, funk, and French House ala Justice with a generous dose of psychedelia, this Turkish Prison Dub Remix accentuates the dance elements even further.
The percussion-driven remix builds during its first couple of minutes with Roland TR-808 style beats and rhythmic vintage synths, while utilizing the vocal hook throughout the entire track to maximum effect. Just after the two minute mark, a brilliant house beat kicks in and there’s no looking back.
More sci-fi than the Daft Punk-like disco funk original, this tasteful remix honours the original but gives the tune a massive fuel injection.
