Not the most obvious choice of artist for Ambient Sunday, I grant you. But I was reminded of this by a post from JC over at The Vinyl Villain, who posted mixes of Walking Down Madison (here) but didn’t include the ambient mix. This provides a gentle, whispy backing, focused on the tom toms, leaving Kirsty’s voice to carry the track. The remix was by Howard Grey of Apollo 440. It’s a shame she didn’t work with other electronic artists.

  1. Unfortunately, the track skips at 0:16. Surprisingly, I think this more mellow take on the song holds up better than the original.
