bowie – china girl dancemix
EMI wanted a dance mix that they could play in all the clubs in asia, and at the time people in europe were also very interested in more world type sounds and how east could meet west in a very cool way. ian started off with the bowie’s lead vocal and got a tempo map going. then began to find the right sort of chords and space for the beginning, gradually filling it out and adding a hard knocking 4 to the floor beats, with some etherial asian bells and gu zheng runs.
