Suzanne Vega – Tom’s Diner (DNA Remix)
This song was the song for the dance craze in the early 90’s. Suzanne Vega originally released this song as an acapella. Basically, there was no backing music to the track, just her voice for the entire track. DNA Disciples then took that track and added a Soul 11 Soul breakbeat underneath with some ambient synth, orchestra hits, and piano licks added for good measure. The hook was changed to the playful “doo doo doo doo, doo da-doo doo” and a remix was born. Suzanne Vega approved of the remix and a hit was made.
Fun fact: the original acapella track was one of many tracks used to develop the mp3 codec algorithm. True shit.
