Kate Bush, Remixed

As you might’ve already known, Britain’s original queen of kooks Kate Bush will unleash “Director’s Cut”, her first new album since 2005, on May 16. The prospect of a collection of re-recordings seemed promising at first, but has since become questionable after I heard the rather dodgy new version of “Deeper Understanding”. A nice update or potential cock-up to ruin her legacy? It could go either way.
Still, her music sounds great when remixed right. Recently, UK’s new electro act Echoes decided to remix “This Woman’s Work”. On paper, the idea of turning such a classic torch ballad into a Moroder-style disco stomper sounds unneccessary, if not a bit sacrilegious. But they made it work! A really unexpected, excellent remix.
While we’re at it, let’s revisit another Kate Bush bootleg. Get the 2005 Datassette rework of “Running Up That Hill”, which I still quite enjoy.

  1. Thanks for posting this remix, sounds great!
    I adore Kate since childhood. Don’t like much her album from 2005. but all previous albums were great, especially those first few.
