COMA – Bette Davis Eyes

While I DO know about the legendary Kompakt Records, I admittedly do not know a whole lot about their artist COMA (duo Marius Bubat & Georg Conrad who apparently hail from Space, according to their bio).  I DO, however, know my 80s music.  And everyone knows that “Bette Davis Eyes” by Kim Carnes is one of the greatest one-hit wonders of all time.  The track has certainly made some appearances on the electronic music circuit via remixes and sampling, most notably on “In Your Arms” by all-time GDD favorite Mylo.

This time around, “Bette Davis Eyes” gets a rich, hypnotic, techno pop treatment from the aforementioned COMA.  The long, spacey intro builds and builds and then right around the 4:00 minute mark, that signature synth riff comes rolling in.  And the result is glorious.  Even more glorious: the track is being given away as a free .WAV!
