Elle est belle et son prénom c’est Bonnie…

Matthew Herbert is one of dance music’s few real visionaries–a producer who’s done to house music what Steve Reich did for classical minimalism, or what Cabaret Voltaire did for electronic experimentation. Second Hand Sounds is a collection of his finest remix work under a variety of pseudonyms–including Doctor Rockit and Herbert and proves that he is one of the most versatile and forward-thinking electronic musicians of his time and this is as good a showcase for his talents as any of his other albums to date. Gathered together in Secondhands sounds are some of his best, most sought after mixes of Matthew Herbert. The pedigree of the musicians who sought mixes by Mat is not to be sniffed at. Serge Gainsbourg, Moloko, Blaze, Recloose, Louie Austen are just a few of the names here. But to me, the Gainsbourg remix takes the cake as I thought of writting a post about Seurge while watching his biopic movie, Gainsbourg, vie héroïque. I just don’t think I could’ve write anything new about Serge that would not have been discussed before.
