Bertie Blackman and the alchemy of the remix

Bertie Blackman has a voice liked whipped cream: decadent, sensual, rich, delicious, but not something you want to take on its own. Taken alone the Australian chanteuse’s music, all sub-power ballads and Siouxie and the Banshees cover versions, is a touch heavy for my tastes. But at the hands of the right remixer, links below, her voice is transformed, into something utterly delightful, like say poached pears and cream.
