Leigh de Vries – Strange (Jagz Kooner Dub Mix)


Jagz Kooner was one-third of Sabres of Paradise and was a member of The Aloof. But more recently his work has been as much about rock as dance. The two are perfectly blended in this dark, driving remix for Leigh de Vries.

“Industrial shock rocker” – three words to induce nothing more than a heavy sigh. Leigh is unknown to me but apparently from Sheffield, which is an industrial shocker, in its own way. This EP owes much to the dressing up box and mummies make-up. But Kooner manages to get it all to align in his dub version and produce something in which the drama, driving guitars and beats make sense. A bit like Curve, for those with longer memories.

Blurb: Leigh de Vries, internationally acclaimed industrial shock rocker, returns with ‘Strange’ – the next instalment from her new album, The Machine. The release includes remixes from iconic London-based electronic/rock producer Jagz Kooner, New York’s electroclash pioneer Larry Tee, epic soundtrack auteur Glen Nicholls and Dutch trapmeisters Pinch Hitters. Leigh de Vries has been turning heads with her questioning lyrics and brazen, throbbing sound since her very first release, ‘The Machine, Walk Alone’ – the song which won her the coveted ‘Peoples Music Awards’.
