I Wish I Never Saw the Sunshine – Beth Orton (Grooveblaster 2013 Mix)


I think this remix was originally released by Grooveblaster in about 2004. It was a head-nodding improvement on the Beth Orton original (itself a cover of a Ronettes song). And it remains a desperately sad song – one which I can, even now, barely listen to. Grooveblaster’s updated it to remove some of the muddiness from the earlier version and clean up Beth’s voice.

Now available on iTunes. http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=757229271 The new fantastic 4-song EP by the Grooveblaster ‘Bop Dead City’ is here. Get a hold of yourself as you blast the cosmopolitan instrument grooves. Drop into the seismographic configurations of bebop basslines, funky 70s soul guitar licks, fundamental keyboards of the Rhodes kind, the spaciousness of the spliff girl with superlungs – pooof – and the smoothness of a Saturday afternoon of Philly Soul. Look in a mirror and dig yourself.
