Jan Hammer – No Fear (Barnaby Bruce rework)

The original of this tune is from a 1974 album with guitarist/violinist/singer Jerry Goodman.  Most of the tunes are collaborations, but this one is just Jan.  It’s insanely fast synth-heavy fusion.  A great track, but I decided to slow it down a lot, build the intro, and put the solo sections together.  I also added drums, bass, some pads and plenty of percussion, which gives it a very different feel.

You can hear the original here.

‘Séance Fiction’ – due out in 2015

Just finished a mix of this one – quite a spooky synth-funk track, which is also an attempt at debunking psychic phenomena of the spiritual kind.

Current release schedule is on Palms & Charms mid-2015.  Should be a double-A side with ‘Sweat on Velvet’, which will also have a rather splendid Pete Herbert remix.
