B IS FOR BJORK (PT 2)

When Bjork started her solo career in the early 1990s, she was living in London and was heavily influenced by the dance scene, particularly the more leftfield and experimental producers. All her early singles came with interesting choices of remixers. Today, the mighty Underworld and Speedy J.
In case anyone doesn’t know, Bjork first came to prominence as one of the lead vocalists of the shouty Icelandic sextet The Sugarcubes. When she launched a solo career – after the group’s 1992 demise – she quickly eclipsed her old band’s popularity. Instead of following the Sugarcubes’ arty guitar rock, Björk immersed herself in dance and club culture, working with many of the biggest names, including Mark Bell, Nellee Hooper, Underworld, Howie B. and Tricky. Debut established her new artistic direction and became an international hit.

 

This is from her 1993 single “Human Behaviour”, remixed by Underworld and Speedy J. The Underworld mix is credited to Rick Smith and Darren Emerson. Speedy J is Dutch artist Jochem George Paap, who has been around since the start of the 1990s but without ever having a real smash, yet being otherwise respected.
