As is the case with most of the shelved tracks from Kylie Minogue‘s X sessions, “Ruffle My Feathers” should have probably made the album’s final tracklisting.
It didn’t, though it did make the setlist on the recently completed KylieX2008 Tour. As a result, we mere mortals have yet to have heard the studio version of Miss Minogue’s minor triumph moment.
Until last October at least, when Bitrocka posted a remix snippet of the track on the MySpace.
The track, which has since leaked in full, deserves a healthy post of recognition. Doesn’t the backing beat remind you of something? I can’t figure out what it is yet…Something entirely familiar. Anyway, the mix bends and breaks Kylie’s vocals into lyrical fragments and satisfied coos–A gorgeously executed reinterpretation of a sorely missed opportunity.
Speaking of, Bitrocka also did a sweltering, big bass mix of “The One” for Kylie’s latest remix album, Boombox. While nothing can beat the hypnotica that is the original, the Bitrocka styling is a welcome addition under the impeccable X umbrella, ella.
