HARVEY K-TEL: Ranking In The Deep (2011)

Rating: ★★★★★
I had a rank in the deep once. It was nearly as good as this. And by ‘this’ I mean the latest effort from the man named Harvey K-Tel. Like one DJ Shepdog before him, K-Tel works his mash-up magic with a certain Adele acapella but substitutes Sly & Robbie for something a little more upbeat and rocksteady – sounds a bit like an old number by The Jamaicans. And what do you know? This refix is just as good

DJ SHEPDOG: ‘Rolling In The Dub’ – free download – 2011

“I thought Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” vocal would sound even better over some classic dancehall,” says Shepdog of his recent booty. Oh what? Better than over some MOR rock backing-track that says ‘safe’ better than a fucking banker’s bonus when there’s a Tory government in power? Yes, yes, bastard yes, a billion times better than that.

DANIEL MERRIWEATHER: Water & A Flame (feat. Adele) – 2009 – Single review + Video

Rating: ½☆☆☆☆

More smug and puke-inducing than one of those middle class couples who don’t have the bollocks to admit they’re Tories, this will doubtless play on said couples’ car stereo as they take little Poppy and Jasper to pony club. Also, listening to it, I noticed my life-force started to ebb away like it does when I’m in the ‘helpline’ queue of a company so massive that they couldn’t care less if you wait fifty minutes at premium rates and, in fact, might just cut you off at the end of that time anyway, fuck you very much. Ironic really, as toss like this is exactly the sort of thing picked by faceless multinationals to soundtrack your suffering while they claim to experience, ‘unusually high call volumes’. Wankers.
