What happens when you remix the sounds of your breakfast

Have you just eaten breakfast? The remix below is what breakfast time sounds like inside Tim Waterfield’s head – we wouldn’t like to get between him and his cereal!

The field recording is a lazy Saturday morning at the Sunshine Cafe on Stroud Green Road in London, with cups of tea and fry-ups being prepared: a pretty traditional British cafe sort of soundscape I recorded with, let’s be honest, quite a bad hangover.

The remixed version seems to recognise this and goes out all guns blazing, turning a breakfast cafe into a full-on techno track. My favourite part is the break in the middle when the music stops and the sound of a teaspoon on a teacup punctuates the mix as a percussion break – fantastic.
