Next up on Tirk we head back in time to revisit the defining track of one of the 80's most under-rated bands, Love And Money. "Strange Kind of Love" was the title track from their 1988 album, which was produced by Gary
Katz of Steely Dan fame. Although selling over 250,000 copies the album, the band never quite made the mainstream breakthrough they deserved.
"Strange Kind of Love" is a track which simply does not date. It still sounds as fresh today as it did back in 1988. The track’s wide appeal from the Scottish 80's pop sound to Ibiza chillout 5am classic is testament to the polished production, intelligent lyrics and expansive instrumentation.
For our 2015 release we present brand new recordings of the track from the band (their first work since their 2012 "Devils Debt" album). The headline event of the vinyl release is the 2015 version which features an extra layer of widescreen sheen provided by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
Taking things on a leftfield excursion London 5 piece Haraket strip down the original down to its bare components, add some sultry female vocals and rebuild as a trip-hop, downtempo, twisted, micro-epic.
In reverence to the tracks Balearic following, the Chris Coco remix focuses on re-recreating a slice of chill-out Ibiza. Chris also makes extensive use of the 30 piece string section but keeps the beats prominent. The digital release features the bonus "Port Sulphur" beats-laden remix.
