- Gold / Gold [ John Roberts Mix ] by Darkstar
1 review. Write a review for us »
This tune is lifted from the North album and is a cover of the Human League's 'You Remind Me Of Gold' which was the B-side to 1982's Mirror Man. The general mutterings around the office seem to be dislike of this record but at the risk of being tarred and feathered by my colleagues I'm going to say that I really don't mind it at all. Actually I rather like it. It's such a sweet song anyway that half the work is done. The fact that Darkstar have unexpectedly taken it on and created something fresh and current with it is to their credit as it so easily could have come out sounding like a mess. The piano is really haunting too. John Roberts does a deep house remix with Chicago style drum machine claps and loops a vocal snatch along with the piano.
