Yoko Ono Tops The Dance Chart With Remixes Of 1981's Electro-Pop Hit, 'Walking On Thin Ice'

Yoko Ono's re-envisaged single album, 'Walking On Thin Ice 2013' has become the pop culture icon's 11th chart topper after it rose to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 Dance Club Play chart to snatch victory from the likes of Avicii, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Daft Punk and Selena Gomez.

Yoko Ono's Not Letting The Dance World Forget Her.

"Walking On Thin Ice" was originally recorded during the 'Double Fantasy' sessions with John Lennon and would be the last recording by John and Yoko - recorded on that fateful night of December 8, 1980. Upon its release in January 1981, the single drew attention from tastemakers and DJs for its pioneering electronic dance / post-disco / nu-wave hybrid sound.

The track is evocative of the icy cool New York dance club culture of the 1980s and managed to perfectly capture that often evasive pulse of the city that never sleeps. Birthed into a 21st century climate, 'Walking On Thin Ice 2013' has managed to catch out attention once again thanks to an international cast of dance music innovators who have remoulded the track for a more contemporary feel, yet not forgetting that all-important dancefloor draw.

The new release is issued as an extensive, four-part digital output and invites reworkings from the Grammy-nomintated house music pioneer, Danny Tenaglia, as well as Madonna collaborator Dave Audé, Deathfix's Rich Morel, Emjae and Tedd Patterson.

Listening to the original track in 2013, it's evident how pioneering in her sound Yoko truly was. The new remixes expand upon that forward-thinking creativity and deliver a fresh new take on a classic club track that will bring Ono's masterful music back to the forefront of club music. Walking On Thin Ice 2013 is available as digital green released (that use no materials) or via iTunes, Beatport or all other digital retailers.
