These four tracks date around the year 2000. Using vocals that were recorded on a cheaper than cheap microphone, this cover of a Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds song comes in four flavours:

  • Ballad
  • Dance
  • Chilly D’n’B
  • TripHop

This was a bit of an experimental study: All versions share the vocal samples and overall structure – and even most patterns. They differ mainly in the percussion area and of course instrumentation. The last two are even closer, since they share everything but a few samples and probably the bassline.

I’m sure we got a few lyrics wrong, looking back and listening to the original – well, we were young ;-).
