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).

Whodunnit?

Extra special thanks to Rob in the UK for going above and beyond (and down under) to cross this item off my wants list. Rob purchased a copy from a seller in Australia and had it shipped directly to me. Youdunnit, buddy!!

INFO > As a core artist of the venerable React label, Jane Rolink (aka Mrs. Wood) created fast-paced and energetic techno. The original mix of piano-driven track “Joanna” first appeared on 1994 single “Whodunnit?” When the tune was released later as a proper single, the late Tony De Vit delivered one of his best remixes.
