Sunday Synth Jam: This video captures Kebu performing his all-analog synth cover of the Giorgio Moroder Italo-disco classic, The Chase from Midnight Express.
The performance was filmed live at the Sthlm Italo Disco Party 2015 at Nalen, Stockholm, 16.5.2015.
Here’s what Kebu has to say about his arrangement:
This cover version is a mixture of the both the original version and JAIA’s Express Remix – with a few of my own additions thrown in.
The song was performed using only analog synthesizers, either played live or sequenced. The performance was recorded directly from the mixer to a stereo track and later mixed together with the ambience from the room. A few mistakes have been cut out and replaced with the audio from a rehearsal take.
