Poster for Goldfrapp's Thea - Totem Mix by Mark Wallis of The Devious Corporation

This week I had two videos pulled from YouTube. People were claiming to be me and trying to get credit for my remix and the little movie I made to go with it. I was going to leave them to it, flattered that they liked my stuff, but then I remembered the mountain of work involved in completing both the video and the soundtrack. And none of this was for personal gain – just a tribute to my favourite band. For a humble fan-mix, it’s certainly caused some trouble…

Clockwork video for Goldfrapp’s Drew

Still image from Goldfrapp's Drew (Clockwork Mix by The Devious Corporation) by Mark Wallis

"wild and fun"   "evocative and beautiful"  "absolutely stellar work"

My remix for Goldfrapp’s Drew got some glowing reviews, so I couldn’t resist making a video to go with it. The original song is haunting and nostalgic, and I added a grandfather clock, an oboe and mandolin. Happy memories and lost time are the main themes here in my short film, and I combine found footage with a visit to the Norfolk holidays of my childhood.

Exclusive Goldfrapp remix – Drew (clockwork mix)

Drew by Goldfrapp (Clockwork remix by The Devious Corporation

For weeks I’ve been scratching my head, trying to remix Drew from Goldfrapp’s Tales of Us album. The roots of the song are John Barry and Scott Walker, with a dash of Ennio Morricone and all rendered by a large orchestra. How do you compete with that? The simple answer is you don’t. Some songs just can’t be cajoled onto the dancefloor, and remixes are as much about reinterpretation as tapping feet. Whispers and grandfather clocks feature in my version which lurks in the shadows of a deserted ballroom, echoing with the memories of past dramas. I tried to use just the vocal from the original, and built my own sound using shivering strings, oboes and a church organ. There’s even a choir in there somewhere…

Revenge Of The Lesbian Serial Killer

Goldfrapp Jo Imaginary Movie Poster

It’s not the kind of title you expect to see on The Vibes, so let’s embrace the unexpected for a moment here. The remaining movies which accompany Goldfrapp’s Tales Of Us album were leaked recently, and for just a fleeting moment I was able to steal some screen caps from the video for Jo, which seems to be about split personalities and murderous passion. The result is this imaginary movie poster, continuing the horror theme which snakes through the album.
