mixing it up with Bryan Ferry

Bryan Ferry is always up for a nifty reswizzling. So far, we've been treated to post productions of "You Can Dance" and "Shameless", two jewels from his current longplayer, "Olympia".

Now, in conjunction with The Vinyl Factory, the UK's premiere company for vinyl collectibles, Bryan Ferry has revealed two limited edition 12" singles sporting some nifty remixes of two more tracks from his current tour de force.

The first 12" includes remixes of "Alphaville" by Leo Zero and Time + Space Machine. Remixes of "BF Bass (Ode To Olympia)", exclusive to the second 12" single, arrive courtesy of Boogie Corporation and West End Wolf.

A limited edition with only 300 copies of each 12" pressed for worldwide release.

Let's take a listen to the sprawling, nine minute mix "Alphaville" which was loving crafted by Leo Zero.

That one's got a bit of Roxy sparkle on it. Perhaps it's just a little on the longish side. It could do with a bit of tailoring. A nip here, a tuck there. In the recent past, Leo Zero has sprinkled a bit of reswizzling dust on tracks for Paul Weller, as well as Florence And The Machine.

So far, only a short taster of the sinewy and sexy West End Wolf remix of "BF Bass (Ode To Olympia)" has turned up. Here's a snippet of it accompanied by some behind the scenes footage of le photo shoot for the album cover.

Synthy synths and bass pops, ahoy!


  1. Hi Vinny
    Great blog and one of my frequently visited sites for poptastic news on all the artists I just love! Heads up: some of the BF remixes are already available elsewhere. On the deluxe edition of Olympia remix CD you will find the Alphaville (Time and Space Machine Remix) and BF Bass (Ode To Olympia) (West End Wolf Mix). The Leo Zero Remix of Alphaville has been floating around the internet for many months now. My pick is the Alphaville (Time and Space Machine Remix), slinky, groovy, chilled elegance!

  2. Hmmm. Vinyl Factory. I have a lot to say on this topic, and I've already said it a few months ago, here: http://postpunkmonk.wordpress.com/2010/11/03/the-emperors-new-records-or-am-i-being-exploited-here/
