‘Daniel’ [Tara Busch’s AnalogSuicide mix]

It’s doubtful there’s anyone reading this who isn’t aware of Natasha Khan’s career-making, ‘Karate Kid’-referencing single ‘Daniel’ so we’ll focus on the unknown quantity here. Tara Busch is the founder of tech-head music website AnalogSuicide.com and a recording artist in her own right. The pair first met in 2007 when Tara supported Bat For Lashes at a gig in LA, and must have made quite the impression as she was later approached by Natasha’s label to contribute this remix. Tara goes into great detail on her website about the process of making the mix – from the gear she used, to the writing and recording of her own backing vocals – and even filmed the whole thing for your geeking-out pleasure on YouTube.

“I set about with the intention to create a remix that would showcase the childlike, deeply emotional characteristics of the lead vocal whilst creating a bed of sonic swoops, ferocious fuzz and sweet blips and bleeps for the vocal to travel in,” she says, and she really pulled out all the stops, even “chasing a rainstorm for a good field recording”. The result is a weirdly sensual, immaculately produced take on the song that fans will love. MP3 after the jump.

Tara’s debut UK release, Pilfershire Lane, is out on July 27th through Tummy Touch Records.

Truly beautiful remix, dark and gorgeous. Nice to see you are not the usual bunch of flaccid mainstream industry whores, and that you take the time to focus one some cool indie people.
