Hi Steve The highly successful platinum – Annie Lennox “Diva” album – saw your involvement as drum programmer – how did that come about? Would that of been drum machine or samples ? do you recall what tracks you worked on ? I believe that album produced five hit singles. V Best

I worked on ‘Why’ and the contact was Steve Lipson from the Propaganda work (I think).  I programmed my own drum samples and percussion. My ‘version’ had a closer feel to ‘Blackwater’ (RTC) in terms of presence and intimacy but the final mix is kind of more rhythmically bland, but maybe that’s what it takes to create a global hit.
