SPLHC (Mike Lorello’s Pep-Pep-Pepper Mix)

“They’ve been going in and out of style”

My scrumbled-up dub mix of the title song from the Beatles’ masterpiece. This album, my favorite, embodies everything I love about writing, recording and production. When I heard this album for the first time, it all came together for me.

I enjoy working on dance music because the technology behind the production is a lot of fun. And I like the freedom of expression when creating an alternate dub version of a dance or reggae record.

So I decided to apply those techniques to a rock record. I decided on Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band because, well, The Beatles.

The only things I added to the original tracks are a crash cymbal and the drums from the intro of the Reprise.

Much respect to The Beatles, George Martin, Geoff Emerick, Peter Blake and all involved in the creation of this historic album.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

  1. A spectacular achievement, Mike! You made this classic rock song come alive in a whole new way. Feels like now, modern, radio-ready just for today. This “scrumbled” (I dig that Lennon word you made up!) remix makes me smile, and it even makes me wanna dance! Lots of new shimmer and shine on there with your obvious production skills, while you still maintain the trippy psychedelia of the original, all driven by an unrelenting (in a good way) beat. Freakin’ great! And yes, I DID “enjoy the show” of your video. Actually hypnotic and mesmerizing, as I watch all those Pepper figures “come together” as the group. And I had to chuckle watching that yellow submarine dive in and out quick! Ha! All in all, waaaaayyy cool!
