Peter Hook Says A David Guetta Remix Of New Order's 'Blue Monday' Is A "Dream"
The bassist admits he also wants Calvin Harris to help out with one of the group's biggest hits.
New Order star Peter Hook has confessed that it would be a "dream" to get the likes of David Guetta and Calvin Harris to remix the band's 1983 single 'Blue Monday'.
The 56 year-old star is estranged from the rest of the band members but told The Observer that a 30th anniversary remix of their track is something he's very interested in seeing happen.
"When we went to New York in '81/'82, the disco and electro started to sink in. I knew we weren't going to go disco," he told the publication. "We were going to offer a white northern take on black disco music – and then we started working with Arthur Baker, who wrote 'IOU'."
He continued: "His attitude to writing dance music was like a punk writing punk. Very adventurous, off the wall, anything goes. I like the modern versions of him too – Calvin Harris, Soulwax, David Guetta.
"My dream for the 30th anniversary of 'Blue Monday' is for them all to do a mad commercial remix of it."
Both acts have worked with some of the biggest names in the business in recent years.
Calvin recently spoke out about making music saying it was an easy task but difficult to perfect.
