E IS FOR EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL (PT2)

This post picks up the story following the success of the Todd Terry remix of 1994’s “Missing”.

 

EBTG (Ben Watt & Tracey Thorn) spent 1995 dividing their songwriting time between spells in London and New York, and then recording EBTG’s eighth studio album, Walking Wounded (1996) in London. The album, released in May 1996, proved the most successful of their career so far, spawning four hit singles, Walking Wounded, Wrong, Single and Before Today. The album signalled the adoption of a whole new set of influences from the burgeoning dance and breakbeat scene – influences hinted at on their previous album, Amplified Heart, and furthered in subsequent work with Massive Attack and the remixes of Missing. Walking Wounded established EBTG as one of the few groups of their generation to successfully bridge the gap between the 80’s and the 90’s. Here are some remixes by DnB artists:
