Any collaboration between DJMag's favourite fruit-loop Roisin Murphy, ex of Moloko, and electro dons Mason, aka Iason Chronis and Coen Berrier, was always going to be a hot track – and ‘Boadicea’, which will be released in early March next year on Animal Language Records, doesn’t disappoint.
Even better for any fans and producers is an accompanying competition to get your own refurb of the track on the release alongside remixes from Danny Howells, Evil Nine, Tony Senghore and Human Life.
What’s a refurb you might ask? Well forget stems, parts and samples, because it's not a remix or even a re-edit. Instead, it’s your reinterpretation of the track in any style you like. A speed metal/speed garage fusion? Done. Your imagination is the limit. If you need some inspiration, check Mason’s bonker refurbs below.
The original 'Boadicea' can be listened to here. Entries must be submitted by 1st Dec via firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject 'Refurb Roisin'.
Mason release of their deubt album 'They Are Among Us', featuring an array of collaborations with artists including Roisin Murphy, Kurtis Blow, Aqualung, Sam Sparro feat. DMC (from Run DMC) and Sway, in last March 2011.
