Hope/Fire (MW Edits)

Prego
Mick Wills is Europe’s unofficial edit king, as this release demonstrates. Both of these edits have been a staple in the German DJ’s sets, and effortlessly mix high camp with techno force. Wills’ take on The Stallion’s ‘Hope’ sees him lay down dark bass pulses and detuned synth riffs, but also a hypnotic, looped vocal snatch. The version of The Wall’s ‘Fire’ follows a similar route. There’s a slightly daft, hiccuping vocal snatch, and a dramatic ice queen banshee wails as the arrangement progresses, but Wills’ tough kicks and jarring riffs prime it for the dancefloor.
