    Not a typical Mason club banger by any stretch of the imagination 'Boadicea' is the first salvo from the boy's 'They Are Among Us' album. Having built up a steady online buzz via cult blogger Perez Hilton's support this tune has been gathering much internet moss as it rolls through the ether picking up momentum.

    This classy electronic mid-tempo showcases the versatility of the Amsterdam based producers and the vocal beauty of Roisin Murphy. Its simple slowly arpeggiating theme over a sexed-up groove creates the perfect palette for Roisin's pure tones soaring majestically over the sonic canvas.

    Dutch duo Iason Chronis and Coen Berrier had always been massive fans of Roisin's since hearing her on early Moloko tracks in their formative years. Having sent over a bunch of their latest ideas it wasn't long before the Irish diva was enlisted as another star performer on 'They Are Among Us'.

    A heavily pregnant Miss Murphy entered a borrowed London studio and over the course of a day came up with the magical performance on 'Boadicea' somehow inspired by the ancient revolutionary warrior queen! What started life as a slow, deep Italo influenced groove turned into something much more special.

    "Working with Roisin was really inspiring" Iason reflects of the recording session. "She breezed into the room and just became this creative machine of ideas as soon as the mic was switched on and stuck in front of her".

    'Boadicea' has been taken into the club area by some quality and diverse remixers. Brighton's Evil Nine, give it a stab happy old school house rinse. Even the most stubborn of hands will be air-bound when this one is dropped. Remix maestro of the moment, Oliver $ goes for a bass heavy, jumped-up, driving dancefloor extravangazna! Tony Senghore brings his signature pitching vocal madness to his treatment. Madder than a bag of kittens the Swede warrants a check up from the neck up with his typically loco remix. Danny Howells and Mat Playford opt for a deep and funky disco vibe in contrast. A smooth and relentless head nodder of groovy goodness! The package is rounded off in big room euphoric style with LA's mighty Human Life providing the icing on this very tasty cake.

    The now traditional 'Refurb' comes from Animal Language competition winner Tim Brownlow. His complete musical and vocal re-interpretation of the original won through the numerous entries and joins the list of random re-workings from Mason's back catalogue.

    Boadicea is taken from Mason's debut album 'They Are Among Us' - Released 4th April

      Boadicea Lyrics

      Beaten and battle scarred
      You have grown weary of your doubtful war.
      Epic battles as titans clash
      Yet every warrior's heart is only flesh.

      Boadicea, the real life, Boadicea
      Deep within you
      Boadicea
      You need love, Boadicea
      You've been strong for so long
      Boadicea

      As the hunter is hunted down
      She slays her enemies on sacred ground
      The bloody battles have left their scars
      yet she will fight the good fight though it breaks her heart

      Boadicea, the real life, Boadicea
      Deep within you
      Boadicea
      You need love, Boadicea
      You've been strong for so long
      Boadicea

      Got plenty of fight left
      We have tonight, left
      This is the real test
      when finally you rest
      Out of the nightmare
      Allow me to take care of your needs
      Let me wipe away your tears

      Boadicea, the real life, Boadicea
      Deep within you
      Boadicea
      You need love, Boadicea
      You've been strong for so long
      Boadicea

      Boadicea, the real life, Boadicea
      Deep within you
      Boadicea
      You need love, Boadicea
      You've been strong for so long
      Boadicea

      Boadicea Lyrics

      Beaten and battle scarred
      You have grown weary of your doubtful world.
      Epic battles as titans clash
      Yet every warrior's heart is only flame.

      Boadicea, surreal life, Boadicea
      Deep within you
      Boadicea
      You need love, Boadicea
      You've been strong for so long
      Boadicea

      As the hunter is hunted down
      She slays her enemies on sacred ground
      The bloody battles have left their scars
      yet she will fight the good fight though it breaks her heart

      Boadicea, surreal life, Boadicea
      Deep within you
      Boadicea
      You need love, Boadicea
      You've been strong for so long
      Boadicea

      Got plenty of fight left
      We're here tonight, led
      This is the real test
      and finally you rest
      Out in the night, led
      And I'm gonna take care of your needs
      And then wipe away your tears

      Anything from Rosin's lips gives me goosebumps and Mason has made the perfect accompaniment.
