No doubt, like most of you guys reading this quick blog post, I’ve been in awe for a few weeks about the latest chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ needs no review or other props from me about its pure ‘awesomeness’, but it did remind me of a production I did way back, circa 1990 I think.
Made originally as a response to the late 80s/early 90s popularity of the Batman legacy, then reborn under Director Tim Burton, this production was merely a celebration of the more camp 60s version I’d witnessed as a boy. Adding Roland 808 percussion and TB303 acid-lines under various musical Bat-Snatches, it was pinned together in the same vocal sample dialogue clip format I’d used before in my ‘Epic’ series of DMC mixes.
In fact, DMC’s head honcho, Tony Prince, actually tried to clear all the primary samples used in an effort to take the tack from a ‘DJ Only’ release and into the public marketplace – it was, however, not to be. Anyway, check out the Soundcloud link below for some camp Bat-Grooviness!
