INFO > Mary Kiani’s third single is a cover of Shannon’s 1983 club classic, “Let The Music Play.” Released in 1996, Kiani’s version was remixed by Paul Oakenfold & Steve Osborne, Dave Ralph & Mike Koglin, Steve Rodway, and Tim Hannigan.

With Or Without You

01 With Or Without You (Eddy Fingers Radio Mix)
02 With Or Without You (Planet Album Mix)
03 With Or Without You (Qattara Tartan Trance Mix)
04 With Or Without You (Spiritual Masters Kik Mix)
05 With Or Without You (Mrs Wood’s White ‘N’ Wood Remix)
06 With Or Without You (Canny Remix)

INFO > Covering a U2 song can be risky business, but that hasn’t hindered countless efforts to tackle the band’s iconic catalog. Produced by Eddy Fingers, Mary Kiani’s trance house take on “With Or Without You” is hardly essential listening. The remixes don’t do much to improve the tune, although I am partial to Qattara’s ‘Tartan Trance Mix’ (referencing Kiani’s Scottish heritage).

INFO > Scottish songstress Mary Kiani first found fame in the early-1990s as the voice of rave group The Time Frequency. After going solo in 1994, Kiani racked up several UK hit singles, no doubt helped by Mercury’s seemingly unlimited budget for remixes. Annoyingly, both the Qattara and Eddy Fingers mixes are faded early on the CD single of “100%” to comply with UK chart rules.
