January 20, . June 1, July 6, 7 and 10, September 21, . Billboard Hot . Several artists were remixing their tracks and compiling them to create new albums. The different parts of a song, including the lead vocals, background vocals, guitarsbasssynthsdrum machine —all went through the process of mixing to sound considerably different from their original counterpart. Mixing determined how loud these instruments were going to sound in relation to each other and what particular sound effects should be added to each instrument.
The arrangements were itself created at the mixing stage, rather than being created previously. A particular vocal phrase could be endlessly copied, repeated, chopped up, transposed up and down in pitch and give them more echoreverberationtreble or bass. It was this concept which intrigued Madonna, while she was developing her third studio album True Blue She said, "I hate it when people do master mixes of my records.
I don't want to hear my songs changed like that. I don't know that I like it, people screwing with my records. The jury is out on it for me. But the fans like it, and really, this one was for the fans, for the kids in the clubs who wanted to hear these songs in a fresh new way.
Dance music elevates the DJ and the mixer to being almost on a level with the musician. In my opinion this is false. Manipulation of pre-recorded sound sources may be creative in a secondary sense, and may be valid in its own field, but it is pseudo musicianship.
That's why we tried to have a fresh approach to the songs for You Can Danceas if we were developing and composing them for the first time. Madonna turned to her old friend and producer John "Jellybean" Benitez to help her remixing the songs, and also enlisted the help of Patrick Leonardthe producer of True Blue. Together they chose six of Madonna's old songs and decided to give it a remixed form.
It was omitted from the album because Madonna felt that it was similar in composition and structure to "Holiday".
After the remixing of the songs started, Benitez noted, "We decided on basic questions like 'How loud should the drums be? How much should the vocals stand out? But we already had Madonna's catalogue of danceable songs which was enough material for lifetime. At certain points, almost no music is heard except the drums and at others, the drums are removed with only the hi-hat left to keep time. The album cover denoted Madonna's continued fascination with Spanish culture and fashion. Heiden explained in an interview with Aperture magazine in October that the cover was not meant to be a tie-in with the True Blue cover.
And of course the handwriting reappears on that album. Brian Chin, a Rolling Stone journalist, wrote the liner notes for the album, explaining the process of remix and why the seven songs were chosen for the track list.
According to Rikky Rooksby, author of The Complete Guide to the Music of Madonna"Improvements in studio technology meant that possibilities for shaping the sound after it has been recorded are almost limitless. Previously to change the sound of an instrument, or to jump from one sound to another, recordings used to stop playing the instrument and the drums at that point. But for the remixes on You Can Dancethe fade engineering technology was applied to the songs, wherein the fader was simply pulled down, and was pushed up again when the sound of the instruments were made to come up to the surface.
After the first versethe sound of keyboard is heard during the chorus. Madonna follows the music played by the piano and utters the words "Pa-da-pa-da-pappa pappa pa pa" in the same melody. The second track is "Holiday", which Benitez said that he always wanted to remix, commenting "There are new sounds on the remix [of 'Holiday'], but it had a groove that needed no improvement. Like "Holiday", the middle section of "Everybody" features a drum break, with a synth tune backing it up.
The word "dance" is echoed and slowed-down continuously through the break, gradually changing into the intermedia verse. At the very end, the drums are pulled out, leaving Madonna repeating the "get up and do your thing" phrase, which hovers over to the intro of the next song "Physical Attraction". The first verse does not start until about ninety seconds into the remix. After the first "Now I know you're mine" line is sung, there is a percussion break, and repetition of the phrases "step to the beat" and "c'mon".
The last verse incorporates echoing on the vocals, causing overlap of the phrases. The remix ends with instrumentation from congaswhistles and timbalesgiving it a Mexican ending. Since it is a dance album, it doesn't matter that 'Holiday' and 'Into the Groove' are here twice, once each in dub versions, because the essential grooves and music are quite different in each incarnation. It is true that some of this now sounds dated—these are quite clearly extended mixes from the mid 80s—but that's part of its charm, and it all holds together quite well.
Not essential, but fun. While she was evolving into a serious pop star, musically she still knew how to host the best party. Timothy Green from The Miami Herald said that "[The album has] got a good beat and you can dance to it.
Madonna's new album isn't really new, but rather a collection of danceable hits, remixed by club deejays masterful at that peculiar art of taking the artists' work, track by track, and reconstructing it. Most such remixes become inch dance singles, and You Can Danceis basically a compilation of these.
The remixes sound fresh and gives a new outlook on the already famous and popular songs. In Something About You (Shep Pettibone Remix) - Level 42 - The Remixes (CD) United States, the album was released on November 18,and reached a peak of number 14 on the Billboard It was not officially released as a single in the United States; therefore it was not eligible at the time to appear on Billboard ' s Hot Even so, it managed to garner enough airplay to appear on the publication's Hot Airplay survey in early It debuted on the Airplay chart at 37 on the issue dated January 16, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
