Unlikely Remix

I don’t how these two crossed paths but in 1999 Jim Reid, fresh from the recently split up Jesus And Mary Chain, remixed Fun-Da-Mental’s Ja Sha Taan. Fun-Da-Mental make political, electronic, agit-prop mixing in rap, Asian sounds and Qawwali singers, in this case Nawazish Ali Khan. Jim Reid makes feedback drenched, American influenced, British indie rock. This remix manages to cover both bases.

While I’m on a roll, from 1995, Fun-Da-Mental remixed by Weatherall’s Sabres Of Paradise. According to wiki Fun-Da-Mental are a ‘multi-ethnic, hip hop, ethno-techno, world fusion music group…with an outspoken political stance’. Strange to think that this kind of thing was all the rage in the mid-90s.
