21st Century Kung Fu Fighting !
The full story!
In the beginning there were three people with different styles in Dance Music
Kevin Lloyd a producer of Nu Skool, Break Beat & Dub Step
Dave Grier a producer of Electro House,Cranking House & Techno
Ian Middleton a DJ & producer of Hard House, Psy Trance & Israeli Trance
Dave & Kev are old friends who met in WSM & worked in Kev’s Recording Studio in Ross-on-Wye
Ian & Dave are friend’s out DJ’ing (Heaven, After Dark & the infamous Bunker to name but a few) all three get together as a team to create an Album for a friend (Napier) when they formed the band CETACEA
Moving on in time to a chance meeting between Pete Goodall & Ian,in October 2010 at Speakeasy Recordings Hereford, a question was asked by Pete, the band leader with Carl Douglas in the 70’s, could a remix of Kung Fu Fighting be brought into the dance world, for a new generation of clubber’s….
Kev,Dave & Ian reformed AnalogLife & the three Writer / Producers got together at Dave’s Recording studio (Bassline) in WSM to create an Electro House version, with their friend MC Sane being recruited to add extra vocal’s to the already Kicking track
After six weeks work the Mixdown was ready for Pete & Brian at Speakeasy for approval.
Perfect, the thumbs up sign was given & we were on our way to the renowned John Dent at Loud Mastering in Taunton to Master the track
To our amazement John was at the original Cutting of the track in the 70’s (sorry John) at Trident in London as an apprentice
(how cool is that)
The finished track was taken back to Pete at Speakeasy then on to
One Media Ltd for distribution
AnalogLife are working on more 70’s tracks
