Nice to get just some straight poppy beats here on CC mixter lately and to hear Anchor like this .

I’me in a daft mood today and couldnt get past the line, Joan of Arc comes in chains ,

Must be all that horse riding :-)

i’ve grown to count on Anchor’s work for its ‘deep tissue’ meditative qualities. i know he can get on down ‘cause i’ve heard him do it with psychedelic rockers ‘The Forge’. i know he’ll love this one.

Panu! Careful or you’ll blow my egg-head cover! My Forge days are still among my most precious memories (what I recall of them!) -
and that tight leather jacket with signs of the zodiac emblazoned all over it is still worn on reliquary occasions!

Its fun to sing… but - to sing and dance is mo’ bettah fun ! I loved getting to belt out that last peel in the finale - but you are the genius in this production Scott! Thanks!

Love it Scott. I agree it is really nice to hear Anchor in this environment. Not a morsel of meaning lost but joy added. Nowt wrong with that. :-)

MY man AC with a nice Dance beat.
I’ve tried to remix a few of AC pella’s with a up beat groove, but i was never happy with anything i put together. I love what you did here.
Very well done Scott.

Ah old leather jackets and dancing feet, liquid lights and brandy and Babycham’s and furtive looks and sweaty fumbling hands. Clubs full of wannabe’s and having to be one of them and lots of fun in built up shoes.

Great entertainment gents!

What’s next AM? Rap? Expletive free of course:O)

I give you +100 points for doing this - I think it’s another terrific use of AM’s vocals in a few days.

I really like the busy sections - the drive works well with the vocals to push forward.
In the quiet parts though the vocals feel a bit detached or floaty to my ears … but then the high energy hits again and all is forgiven. :)

Nice job.

Like the contrast between this up beat dance music, and the quiet poetry of AM.

This is oustanding!

WoW! This is different for Anchor. This is a fun dance floor track. It’s intersting to hear his lyrics on top of traditional dance. Good for the head and booty! I expect to be happy too!

Thanks for doing this Scott and Anchor.
Its everything I thought it would be when you mentioned a upbeat AM colab last week.
All I can say is wow.

A huge bravo to you both!

I see Anchor in a white suit and a chapeau. This reminds me a lot of the “New Romantics” area from the 80s transformed into the 21st century. Scott, you did a wonderful arrangement to let Anchor vocals enough space.
It is a very good production with a great fun factor!
