ONO, the dance music alter ego of Yoko Ono, has released two new remixes of her 1981 No. 1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Single, “Walking On Thin Ice.” One remix was done by Grammy-nominated house music legend Danny Tenaglia, and the other was done by Dutch EDM producer R3HAB . Tenaglia’s remix (“Give Ice A Chance”) is his first production in nearly a decade.
You can listen to both tracks below.
“Originally recorded during the ‘Double Fantasy’ recording sessions with John Lennon, “WALKING ON THIN ICE” would be the last recording by John and Yoko — recorded on that fateful night of December 8, 1980,” according to a press release. “Released in the early months of 1981, the pioneering electronic-injected dance / post-disco / nu-wave hybrid would become ONO’s definitive masterstroke and, easily one of her most accessible, best-known and well-regarded works, brilliantly capturing the kinetic pulse, tension, gritty nihilism and urban cool that defined the times then, and, in an acknowledgement to its timeless insights, continues to define them now.”
