“But what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game…”

I was texting with my friend Andrew as I was putting this mix together. He’s English, and likes that I throw in what he considers pop tunes. While an artist like Seal has certainly enjoyed mainstream success, I tend to think of him as being on the fringes of pop at the time Killer was re-recorded (from an earlier collaboration with Adamski) and re-released. The remix was done by William Orbit at the same time he was remixing artists like Nitzer Ebb, and it wasn’t commercial to my ears. “In fact,” I said, “there’s quite a dark undercurrent running through this entire mix. We’ve got a rave classic which is based on a musical snippet from ‘Judas’ Death’ in Jesus Christ Superstar, a killer, a gangster, voodoo, the Vietnam War, the Devil, tension, Belgians, political vegans, and a Front Line Assembly side project with lots of sci-fi and horror movie samples.”

I was very amused to realize that “Belgians” and “political vegans” were things I considered dark by default.
