Renaissance return to their critically acclaimed ReMix Series on 27 December as Patrice Bäumel takes on Sunscreem’s legendary ‘Perfect Motion’.
Like many of the best records, Perfect Motion’s path to bonafide dance anthem wasn’t a simple one. Having begun life as part of Sunscreem’s live sets and in near unrecognisable form on their debut album ’03', it went down a convoluted path of various mixes; first ‘in-house’ with the band’s resident DJ’s Dave Valentine and Lee Metson and then, when selected as the follow-up to their first hit Love U More, by way of remixes courtesy of Leftfield, Carl Cox and, of course, Farley and Heller’s Boys Own Mix.
“Dave Valentine was a big admirer of Boys Own and wanted them onboard,” explains Sunscreem’s Paul, “we literally had to beg Sony to let them have a crack at it and, even then, weren’t overly impressed with the result. It was only after Pete Tong played it on Radio 1, describing it as ‘their best work ever’, that they changed their minds.”
