There was the 12" Batmix that Mark Moore did in 1989 which was an official Prince release.

Wow, Cat can talk can't she! Doesn't seem like the same person!!

.

Just 2 interesting parts for me. "Serve it up, Frankie" is Frankie Knuckels!

.

That she mentions The White Room and Fishbone... Such a shame those extra songs they performed for the TV show haven't been seen.

.

Shame they didn't really get into the whole Black Album vs Lovesexy writing process, and Prince's real thoughts on the songs and "scrapping" the album.

In fact Mark Moore's remix of Batdance includes "Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic"... maybe hinting at how an original version of this track could have sounded pre Batman!

Prince's house music realistically is just an attempt at acid house and so I admit I'm not a fan of Prince's house music except Loose which I love. But 51 Hours and one of the tracks on Emancipation are just that....attempts.

The more I think about this era, the more interesting and frustrating it is!

Clearly the sequel to Lovesexy had promising influences, and he was interested in working with House music DJs and producers, at least on remixes.

What an album "Rave" could have been, if the offer of Batman hadn't come along!

("Acid House", maybe not, but it would have been "House" of some kind)

.

I hadn't listened to those Mark Moore/William Orbit remixes in years, and they're far better than I thought at the time!!

.

He was a genius and so far ahead of us fans!! eek

Nobody will ever understand how exciting a prospect this is for me. All I've ever wanted to know is what Prince would sound like absuing a 303.

Great interviews, loving what they had to share. Cat should take it easy on the coffee though... eek

I'd always assumed that Prince was influenced by Tim Simenon's Bomb The Bass who was pretty big around that time (cerainly in the UK) and very much part of the late '80s acid house scene. Batdance, in particular, is very similar in style to 'Beat Dis' which was released early '88. That track also includes a sample of Housequake's "Shut up..." line which I presume would have been reason enough to have brought it to Prince's attention.

.

I don't recall there being any stories of the two of them communicating or meeting around that period, although Tim later produced Cat's solo material after she left the Prince camp.

I bet they met through Prince during that '89 - '90 period.

.

I wonder if anything else was produced! Maybe other mixes of Batdance, or other tracks?
