LTD EDITION (500) WHITE VINYL 45. Julee Cruise and Eric Kupper, but as you’ve never heard them before. Having been influenced by the likes of Roni Size, 4 Hero, Jacob’s Optical Stairway, LTJ Bukem and DJ Die (the latter of whom Eric did a collaboration with), Kupper was experimenting with drum and bass in the ‘90s and these tracks, that expertly utilise Julee Cruise’s otherworldly vocals, were subsequently born. Originally intended as demos, Eric thought it would be a great idea to remaster them, keeping their raw edge, and give them a proper release some 20 plus years later. Julee enthusiastically agreed.

After the collaboration on the now cult Twin Peaks compositions with David Lynch & Angelo Badalamenti Julee shot into public domain. The mid 90’s, saw Julee Cruise and Eric Kupper sign to the same music publisher, Warner Chappell and Patrick Conseil who had brought them to Warner Chappell thought it would be a good idea to get them collaborating. Born out of this, ‘My Blue Yonder’ is one of the few tracks Kupper has ever written lyrics to and one which is inspired by his then toddler daughter, Zoe. Eric wrote a moody yet childlike song about a utopia, based on his daughter’s likes and dislikes, her joys and her fears. A compelling blend of orchestral arrangements, frenetic beats, and Julee’s unique vocal approach, of which Julee has often commented that it is one of her favourite tracks she has ever recorded.

This collaboration also led to ‘Satisfied’, with lyrics and melody written by Julee. An ethereal somewhat existential track, with jazzy chords and pulsating arpeggios, it still has Eric’s vibe, within a different music style. Julee’s beautifully phrased vocals and lyrics bring the track to life, giving it a clear vision
