Very surprising treament. The way that you have changed the rhythmn of the voice is original. It’s always strange for me to listen to the voice of Barbarella in a new arrangement. You have kept a very nice emotion which fits in perfectly with the lyrics…and her voice..

Now this is a pretty wicked groove you got going here. I love the vocals. Even though I don’t know what she is singing. It’s all good.

I really dig this. It sounds kinda French downtempo like i’ve heard in France (I live in europe, Amsterdam and work in France every now and again) - Not sure if you’re familiar with the french electro scene, but this fits really nicely… Spiffing work RadioTimes! (as in the UK magazine?) - Ciao

I think this repetitive theme of this crystal synth sound works really good on the fragile french vocals. Just when I thought, hey now, it could have kind of change/alteration whatever, you started with the added vocals and guitar. I would say, just in time!! :-)

Agree with scottaltham: sounds like french downtempo.

If you are interested have a listen on “Plus FM” internetradio:

I thought this was a very interesting treatment, and in particular I like the way you used surprising chords to set off against the ‘pella. The high-pitched synth that comes in arrives a bit too “up” in the mix for me, and the Bill Nelson fan in me wanted to hear the guitar without the shouted voice-over. I like the spareness between the instruments and the vocals, which really help the vocals stand out. A mildly quirky and always interesting mix.

Yes I’m 4 years late, but l’histoire de la Bean is one of the funniest things I’ve read here! Lovely track too
