Bonobo and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ “Heartbreak” is an ode to one of electronic music’s formative scenes: NYC’s disco revolution of the 1970’s & 80’s. It’s a scene that was hugely influential on a young Kerri Chandler, and was an important precursor to the House music of which he would go on to be a formative figure.
Listen 'Heartbreak' - Kerri Chandler Remix :
The now legendary American producer and DJ delivers a tough four-to-the-floor remix of the breakbeat-driven original. He explains about this one “First thing is I love Bonobo’s work, so I was excited to have been asked to remix ‘Heartbreak’ for Si & Orlando. We spoke on the phone about the direction that I wanted and felt I should go, and they just trusted me with what I felt as long as I put my swinging beats and vibe to it. We were all in sync with what they were looking for and what I do and I think we’re all happy with the result, I hope you like it too!”.
The reworked track features many of the original core elements and maintains its focus on the iconic sample of Christine Wiltshire’s refrain “I Can’t Take The Heartbreak” from the ‘83 disco anthem “Weekend” by Class Action, delivered over Chandler’s signature swung rhythm and bass.
