The Smashing Pumpkins released Perfect as its second single for the album Adore and in the UK two different CD singles were released. The second version of the Perfect single contained Daphne Descends (Kerry B. Mix).
The Kerry B. mix was a complete departure from the original mix of Daphne Descends on the Adore album. The new mix is heavily electronic and has an Indian influenced feel to it. The track was trimmed down from:the orignal length of 4:39 to 3:52. The track begins with an a capella “you love him” sung by BIlly and D’arcy. The mix does follow suit of the original with the last verse having more focus on the vocals, as well as the ending vocals.
UPDATE: Kerry Brown shared his thoughts on this remix in an email with Crestfallen.com:
“I love this remix. Billy said ‘do whatever you want’ There were no perimeters set at all. I put up the multitracks and started pulling down one fader at a time until there was nothing left but a drum beat and vocals. I was really into the minimal sound i was hearing as it morphed into a new song. Mark Rew from Catherine was in my studio, we were working on a new record during this time. I asked him if he would lay down some guitar on the track and think “movie soundtrack” while playing. Mark did the guitar in one take. The next day I had to go to LA on business. I took the multi-tracks with me to mix in LA. At the last minute I wanted to put a guitar solo in the remix. When I arrived in Hollywood I called David Navarro and asked if he would play the solo, he said yes and to come up to his house “I have a ProTools system”. When I arrived at Dave’s house the system was in pieces, no computer cards or cables so we didn’t have time to put it all together and that never happened. I had to mix the next day. I ended up in a private studio in Hollywood with an engineer dressed as Batman. Good times.”
In addition Kerry wrote on his Facebook account ”I remember when I first turned this mix into Billy he just scratched his head and said WHAT? Then the next day he came back to me and said I now see what you are doing here and it works.”
