Duran Duran - Rio (Matt Mix Remastered)
Another wonderful mix by Matt Pop, who has managed to make this remix of Duran Duran's Rio sound as if it's straight out of the 1980's, whilst giving the song a whole new sound without destroying it - this guy is a genius!
Rio was Duran Duran's 7th hit single of the 80's, reaching #9 in the UK singles chart and #14 in the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. The song was the title track and final release from the band's second album Rio. Other hits from the album were Save A Prayer, Hungry Like The Wolf and My Own Way. For me, Duran Duran's first two albums were definitely their best work and both were produced by Colin Thurston. A combination of Thurston's production skills and the band's early songwriting energy must have contributed greatly to so many quality hit songs being released during the early eighties.
