Bring him back - I know who I want to produce the next album

#1 Post by telys »

It's time, finally after so many years to make an album with Bobby Orlando.
I recently read the FL-booklet for the Release era where Neil praises Orlando's song writing capabilities. Instead of doing a 4th album with Price or turning to a hot new producer they should do something with Bobby O. It would, despite their former collaborations, be an experiment that's for sure. And after all these years, any acrimonous split in 1985 must be forgotten and forgiven by now. And what about rights for the early material, wouldn't it be reverted to the songwriters by now?

No thanks, not for me, if the boys are not looking to go with a new production sound then i would have Trevor Horn back as producer in a heartbeat...depending on the songs the boys have and the style they want the next album to be. I still think it'll be a few years before the next studio album is released and we will get Disco5 before then.

I say, bring David Jackson! The two remixes he did for "I don't wanna" show that he can nail the sound even though he was born in this century. Can you imagine?

Benjamin John Power would be a good choice.

I'd prefer them to produce themselves this time (like Release) or use only minor input from various producers (like Very).

In Annually 2019, they said they want Trevor Horn to produce A Man From The Future, Stephen Hague would be fun to have another album with.

I'm rather looking forward than backwards so I don't want anybody to come back.

I want someone new as much as I want something new.

Bring on ROOSEVELT or COMA and let them produce a further PSB record. It could be their Cologne record.

They're both young electronic artists who are trained musicians as well as producers (both own their own well-equipped studio). They've written fantastic records over the past 5-8 years. They would provide new input as well as inspiration, perspectives etc.

It's about time.

I don't think Horn nailed the PSB sound on Fundamental. No misunderstanding though, I think it's a great album but I believe Dawson for instance did a better job on Elysium.

Another vote for Harold Faltermeyer.

However I would love it if they used Rex the dog aka Jake Williams aka JX. He has managed to take his 90s dance sound and move into new modular synth clubbing areas. He likes the Pets and has written tracks like "Bullet in the Gun" that Chris likes.

I agree. I do enjoy much of Horn's bombastic production, but it's quite dispensable too, and I tire of it quite quickly. I prefer a lusher and enriching sound from the Boys, and that's where Dawson nailed it with "Elysium". Price finally got there with "Hotspot" too but as with a few others here, the real trailblazer of that lush PSB sound was Mr Faltermeyer on "Behaviour".

If I had to go backwards, Harold would be my first choice, but agree, the Boys tend to look forward, not back, and I'd be more supportive of some fresh production talent given the opportunity to work with them - but someone who actually LIKES their music. For me that's where "Yes" failed - there was no love for PSB in that record when it came to the producers. Xenomania sure, but PSBphobia might have been more apt.
