Roy(Apr 15. 2013 11:34 AM)Erg genoten van De Speeldoos in Gebouw-T, maar het zou nog vetter zijn als die cover van ZZ & De Maskers online zou komen!

A pretty long time ago Marcel van As (Coparck / Spinvis) and I were talking, and he told me he wanted to try something with the Sweatshop tracks. I said “sure”. Do the thing you do.
Some time later he sent me this.
What the hell. A Bossa Nova remix? I thought it was hilarious and utterly cool at the same time. Most remixes end up as half ass dance stuff, but this is the other way around.
Man, I’m having cocktails in the sun right now. So should you, while enjoying the brazilian guitars and flutes on this track. A KOKOS remix.
Dé Palmeira; beats/bass/nylon guitar
Johan Hendrikse (Charlie Dee / State of Monc) ; piano/wurlitzer/organ/sounds
Marcel van As (Coparck / Spinvis); beats/programming/sounds
Produced by Marcel van As, Mixed by Dé Palmeira in sunny Rio de Janeiro
Contains original material from “Sweatshop and “Ah, I see” from De Staat (Machinery)
This is a pimped-up De Staat demo track, that was hanging around on my hard drive for too long. This song doesn’t the deserve the digital dust it was collecting, so I did some mixing and finished it.
Recorded near the end of 2009, the track is based on one guitar riff, and eight words: “Take A Walk, Get Some Air. All right.”
And yes, that’s Rocco on lead vocals.
We (De Staat) did a special show called ‘The Psycho Discotheque’ in Luxor-Live Arnhem. It was a special mix of special guests with special sounds. Oh, so special. Next to Bombay Show Pig, Janne Schra, Sweatshop Kelly and Timo van Veen (Stuurbaard Bakkebaard), Blaudzun was one of those guests, and his song ‘Sunday Punch’ (of his latest album Heavy Flowers) worked out well, I think.
So it’s Blaudzun, with De Staat as his background band.
We made this track somewhere in 2009 I think, when the original song was at no.1 throughout the world. We sometimes like to turn shitty songs into cool ones, and this is another example of that, I think.
Singing with me on the track is Kelly, whom you also might recognize from De Staat’s Sweatshop.
