Completing approximately thirty mixes for Prelude during 1982, François Kevorkian began to incorporate dub elements into his recordings during his mix of the album version of “D” Train’s “You’re the One for Me (Reprise).” He also started to freelance, remixing Dinosaur L’s “#5 (Go Bang!)” and Yaz’s “Situation.” The paradigm shift toward electronic dub gathered pace when Kiss FM DJ Shep Pettibone started to mix tracks such as Sinnamon’s “Thanks to You.” Mark Kamins joined the dub parade after he started to date Madonna and mixed her first single, “Everybody.” The soundscape also hummed with the infectious military snares of Yello’s “Bostich,” the flickering beats of Klein & M.B.O.’s “Dirty Talk,” and the hypnotic instrumentation of Eddy Grant’s “Time Warp.”
