B IS FOR BJORK (PT4)

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, proto-trancers Fluke and Americanhouse legends Masters At Work.
This is from an early solo single in 1994, “Violently Happy”, remixed by Fluke and Masters At Work.
Fluke was formed in the late 1980’s by three friends living together in London, Fluke started out making dreamy pop before the explosion of acid house influenced them. It was the growing electronica sound that influenced their early singles (Thumper, Joni, Slid) and their techno-rock debut album The Techno Rose Of Blighty, which is highly recommended.
Masters At Work is the house music production and remix team of Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzales and Little Louie Vega. They first worked together using the name (which had originally been loaned to a mutual friend Todd Terry) in 1990.
