AMBIENT SUNDAY/REMIXING CLASSICS: SABRES OF PARADISE / YOU ARE NOT ALL BORING

We had YANAB’s new EP a few days ago. In writing the post I realised that his brilliant cover version of Sabres of Paradise’s Haunted Dancehall which we had here now comes in a new, beatless version. But it seems no-one is aware, as the play count is very low. This post aims to remedy that.

YARAB says “This is with the drums taken out, for folks who like that sort of thing. It’s much closer to the original.” By original he means the In The Nursery remix. It is but that sells it short. The lack of drums does recall In The Nursery’s unsettling piano-led music box remix. But the lack of drums does also allow the new, faster synth lines to come to the fore, as if Sabres got remixed by Moroder.  

The previous version with drums is here. Of it, I said “This takes the ambient original and guides it gently back onto the dancefloor.”
