When you think of Destiny’s Child, I’m pretty sure the sounds of nu-disco don’t immediately pop in your mind. Well, Borneland have figured out a snazzy way to remix “Bug A Boo” and put their nu-disco touch on it. And you know what…it works!
So what’s the story behind this remix? See what Borneland had to say about the mix:
Neither of us have tattoos nor hair on the chest, though we have been told that these are essentials to survive in our business. Luckily we have great friends with both tattoos and hair on the chest to give us advise when things are tough. One of these advisers once told us, that the first release often ends up completely different from the original idea, due to the fact that one has so many expectations… All these imaginations. Combined with perfectionism, one ends up spending too much time on details and the original idea disappears – this is a shame! To avoid this (unnecessary) “first-time-nervousness”, we chose to start out with something as silly (to us at least), but classic, as a different version of “Bug a Boo” by Destiny’s Child. As a matter of fact, did you know that Beyoncé, LeToya, LaTavia and Kelly Rowland did exactly the same thing in the making of their single. Try listening to the original “Bug a Boo”- single and you will find clear references to Toto’s classic from 1978 “Child’s Anthem – Micki & Jonas via soundcloud
Within the past year and a half, I’ve really grown to love the mixes & remixes from Denmark-based production duo, Borneland.
I’ve posted their mixes in the past, so in case you’ve missed their latest nu-disco mix, “Milestone,” peep it out here.
