1993's Black Tie White Noise shows off David Bowie's penchant for melodic hooks, but the spotless production left us wanting

It’s with heavy hearts we share with you our latest episode, recorded four days prior to the passing of David Bowie.

With Black Star, his 26th album just released, we decided to revisit his 1993 album Black Tie White Noise, co-produced with Nile Rodgers, who worked with Bowie on the successful Let’s Dance album ten years earlier. With drum and keyboard loops influenced by the burgeoning house and early 90s dance scene, BTWN shows off Bowie’s penchant for melodic hooks and Rodgers talent for infectious grooves, but the spotless production ended up sacrificing some of the emotion and left us feeling a bit cold, despite the inspired cover choices.
