Buro 24/7 Singapore Weekly Playlist #66: M.A.N.D.Y
We went through our Get Physical catalogue while we here on tour in Asia and picked some songs which are important to us, the songs that inspire us and put us in a good mood every time we hear them. A lot of the artists have become our good friends after we signed them and we're often in the studio hearing these songs in their demo phase, right up to how they've been finished. That's still a very exciting process.
Anthony from the duo Audiofly is one of our dearest friends in the techno circle and an amazing producer. Till The End Of is one of his very few solo songs and one of our favourites. We can listen to it at any given time and it never gets old. Junior Boys were compiling a mix for our Body Language mix series and No Kinda Man was their exclusive song. I'm still in love with his voice and the weird break at the end of this song, it sounds like heavy thunder and the world coming to an end.
One of our all-time favourite songs on the label is I Try To Find by Siopis. The break is so, so good and the effect on the dance floor is still stunning. There are only happy people when the bass kicks in again. Who Made Who are one of our most loved live bands ever. The three-piece band has so much energy and we were very happy to have remixed their track Hi & Lo.
Finally, we included our favourite remix of what's probably our most famous song, Body Language by Señor Coconut. He really put a lot of effort into this, recording a proper intro and played a lot of the instruments live. It's very rare these days for people to make this kind of effort so we love him for this.
Patrick Bodmer and Philipp Jung founded the Get Physical Music label together with Booka Shade and DJ T. in 2002. Their first album featuring guests like Who Made Who, Francesco Tristano and Jungle Brothers is due this November.
