Bel Canto - Rumour (1996) - Masters At Work remixes

I have to say, it took me a while to like these mixes by Masters At Work for Norwegian pop band Bel Canto, and I very much overlooked them for a while. Like, for ten years!

However time is great at helping your appreciate certain things, and I have finally come round to thinking that these mixes are actually rather fine: the MAW vocal version is pretty cool (although the vibrato in the voice makes it very clear that everything has been radically speeded up), the 'Tribe In Dub' mix is much more than just bonus beats, and even the downtempo mix (together with its instrumental version here) isn't that bad. Well worth rediscovering.

And if you like it, go buy it here! Yep, it's still available, and for as little as 93 cents. Cripes!

By the way, Bel Canto are still active to this day, and singer Anneli Drecker has notably collaborated recently with fellow Norwegians Röyksopp.
