Numb (Perpetual Emotion Machine’s Curare Mix)

Pet Shop Boys Having the isolated vocals for this ballad was a real treat. This is a very beautiful and dark ballad but I wanted to try and morph it into a dance-able club track. It really really works, even though I had difficulty translating the 3/4 time to a four-on-the-floor. It’s my favourite remix, […]

Everybody Wants To Rule The World (Earl Three’s Oligarchy Mix)

Tears For Fears The last of my TFF remixes (for now), this one uses most of the original multitrack but the mix is more electro in a modern style. Beefing up the percussion really gives this remix some power. CREDITS written and arranged by Hughes/Stanley/Orzabal, produced by Chris Hughes. additional production and remix by Earl […]

Head Over Heels (Earl Three’s Earban Instrumental)

Tears For Fears This was was meant to sound hip-hop; I was thinking of the Hardfloor remix of Depeche Mode’s ‘It’s No Good’ when I did it. I am quite happy with it because it takes a sappy 80s ballad and really gives it some teeth. This is companion instrumental to the original remix. CREDITS […]

Head Over Heels (Earl Three’s Earban Mix)

Tears For Fears This was was meant to sound hip-hop; I was thinking of the Hardfloor remix of Depeche Mode’s ‘It’s No Good’ when I did it. I am quite happy with it because it takes a sappy 80s ballad and really gives it some teeth. There is also a slightly different Instrumental Mix. CREDITS […]

Shout (Earl Three’s 90s Style DJ Mix)

Tears For Fears This started out as an attempt to create another DMC-style megamix along the lines of the one I did for Beat Box, but it ended up being just a remix. Which is totally fine because it launched a series of TFF remixes that I really enjoyed doing. Clearly this is biting the […]

You Rock My World (Earl Three’s Dirty Mix)

Michael Jackson This was another way of creating a remix that I wanted to listen to. I also was hoping to create a remix that might have sounded like Moby did it. I didn’t get a lot of positive feedback on this, people thought it was ‘weird’ but I still dig it. I created this […]

They Don’t Care ABout Us (Earl Three’s Earban Mix)

Michael Jackson This was one of the first tribute mixes I did after I started writing as Perpetual Emotion Machine. I was kind of unhappy with most of the remixes of this when it came out, and I just wanted something I enjoyed listening to. I tried to focus mainly on the musical elements instead […]

Smooth Criminal (Earl Three’s What If Shep Dub)

Michael Jackson One of the best Michael Jackson songs. I wondered what would have happened if Shep Pettibone had been allowed to remix it back in 1988. This was the experiment. It was not done with multitrack but with the acappella version instead. Nothing that wasn’t available in 1988 was included in this mix. This […]

Owner Of A Lonely Heart (Earl Three’s TruStyle 12″ Mix)

Yes This is a fantastic track by Yes, an enduring classing with the brilliance of Trevor Horn at the controls. While I really liked the 12″ mix by Gary Langan, it was a sampladelic jam which wasn’t based on the original mix. So that is the point of this experiment — to create a 12″ […]
