E IS FOR EVERYTHING ABOUT THE GIRL (PT3)

Last post about EBTG (Ben Watt & Tracey Thorn). Covers the period from 1995 to the millennium.

 

In 1999 Everything But The Girl released “Temperamental”. Building on the foundations laid during the previous few years, the album further explored the beats and textures of clubland. The sound points to a deep and soulful level of rich song-based dance music. But it was less successful than previous releases.

 

Tracey retreated from the scene in 2000 to concentrate on raising her and Ben’s young family. Ben has developed a lateral career as successful DJ, producer and remixer, launching his club night, Lazy Dog with DJ partner Jay Hannan in 1998. He has delivered a clutch of dance remixes since 2001 for amongst others, Sade, Maxwell, Sunshine Anderson, Meshell N’degeocello and Sandy Rivera, and mixed the bulk of Beth Orton’s acoustic-textured 2002 album, Daybreaker.

 

But back to 1995/6 for Big Room mixes:

 

Everything But The Girl – Before Today (Darren Emerson Underwater Mix)
Everything But The Girl – Driving (Masters At Work Dub)
Everything But The Girl – Wrong (Todd Terry Remix)
