UPDATE 23RD JUNE 2020:
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE PERSONAL SHOPPER REMIX!
Thanks again to all those that created your own PERSONAL SHOPPER remix, I really hope you enjoyed the process. It was certainly fascinating to hear them all, and I think by now I must have heard the voice of Elton John transformed and twisted in every way conceivable! Ultimately, I have made a very personal selection of 8 which I particularly enjoyed, and I would like to share these with everyone and encourage voting for your favourite(s). You can find them below.
In the meantime I also invited 2 bands I admire to create their own PERSONAL SHOPPER remixes:
Pure Reason Revolution's exceptional mix expands on the EBM elements of the original, but adds fresh vocal overdubs by band member Chloe Alper. PRR toured with both Porcupine Tree and Blackfield back in the late noughties. After a few years away they have recently relaunched with an excellent and critically acclaimed new album called Eupnea.
Meanwhile one of my favourite bands of recent years Sub Pop recording artists Shearwater have fashioned their "Fitness Tracker" remix into something dark, nightmarish and almost entirely beatless. The Texan band are currently working on their next album.
