The past few years have seen a massive rise in the appreciation of Honey Dijon, the Chicago-born selector has blossomed into a renowned staple of international house music and her activist work for black and trans rights in the music industry is unparalleled.
Ninja Tune, Classic Music Company, Keinemusik and Glitterbox are just a portion of the labels that she has released with recently, and her latest studio effort brings something completely new to the table.
Having been asked to remix Blancmange, Honey has created a unique rendition of the bands 1983 classic hit Blind Vision, a track from their second studio album, Mange Tout. The track peaked at No.10 on the official UK charts at the time of release.
“Growing up in Chicago, British synth pop was hugely influential in the burgeoning house music scene and Blancmange was a big part of that. To remix a song that was a big part of that soundtrack is a true honour.” – Honey Dijon.
Her edit combines a myriad of refreshing drum and percussive sounds alongside quivering synth notes that follow the commands of well refined filter envelopes. A true dancefloor stomper that has the potential to raise the bar come party time.
The track is available on all major digital and streaming platforms, as well as a 12” release beside another remix from Roman Flügel.
Blancmange – Blind Vision (Honey Dijon Remix) is out now on London Records.
