I heard an awful remix of Sea Lion Woman at a club this weekend, terrible not because the added music production destroyed any emotional impact of the original; but it was handled in the most cliched manner possible. That’s one of my big beefs with dance music nowadays. I consider very few productions to be smart, setting themselves distinguishable from the fluff around them. But what bothered me the most was that this abomination of a remix was played by a DJ who lacked the imagination to figure out how to play this classic in their own way. Pity.
For a better remix of Sea Lion Woman, give Marquis Hawkes 2013 rework a spin.

Since You’re Here …
… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.
Unfortunately I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t setup a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.
If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
