- The UK DJ comes up with four different versions of the Swiss duo's track.
Andrew Weatherall has remixed Yello's "Frautonium" for a new EP.
Yello is a Swiss duo known for their post-punk and synth pop work in the 1980s, including their 1985 hit "Oh Yeah." They've kept going through the decades, releasing an album called Toy last year. Weatherall, who last remixed Yello on 1992's Jungle Bill 12-inch, chose "Frautonium" as his favourite track and remixed it four times. The Frautonium EP features each Weatherall version on one side of vinyl, with a rework by Ian Tregoning added to the fourth side.
"Andrew did some great mixes for us in the '90s so we asked him to mix something from the new album Toy," band member Boris Blank told RA. "He picked the opening track 'Frautonium' and each week sent us a new remix in a different style. Finally, the epic 14-minute 'Half-Life' mix arrived so we decided to put them all out. They're pure Andrew, at his best."
