    The creation of Disco Dracula.

    It all started with a tweet, when Dutch journalist Edwin van Dalen claimed with his big mouth he could make a hit out of an old song like Duck Sauce did with ‘Barbra Streisand’. A representative from the record label EMI challenged him, and so he asked befriended producer RipTidE to help him with this project. A project that soon became more than just a tweet and an idea.

    • Readers from Metro, the biggest free newspaper in the world, could send in suggestions for a song that should be transformed into an updated version. The winning suggestion: ‘Soul Dracula’ by Hot Blood.

    • People that have the skills to make a (non-budget) video could join in as well, and they did. The chosen ones were Geert Bal and Paul van Aarle, who made videos using a time consuming stop-motion technique. The video they made is finished and suits the original song as well as the new version perfectly.

    • After a while EMI stept out of this process and BMKLTSCH RCRDS was cheeky enough to pick this track up and let it see the light of day.

    • If there’s ever any money to be made, Edwin and his musical partner Max don’t want to keep it to themselves. So they chose a good cause to send it to: Jail Guitar Doors (www.jailguitardoors.org.uk), a campaign initiated by the English singer-songwriter and political activist Billy Bragg to provide instruments to those who are using music as a means of achieving the rehabilitation of prison inmates. In short: a musical charitable organisation for a musical project.
