In 1995 The Pump Panel (Tim Taylor and Dan Zamani) were commissioned by FFRR/London Records to Redux their choice of any New Order track. They selected the 1983 electro track “Confusion” and transformed it into a stunning 10 minute Acid Journey dominated by a distorted and unforgettable 303 Bassline. It was that Killer Acid Riff that has driven this unique story ever since.

Released on FFRR in 1995 “Confusion” (Pump Panel Re-construction Mix) was an instant club hit Worldwide and especially in the Los Angeles Party Scene. It was in LA in 1996 when Wesley Snipes witnessed the track played several times to huge responses and then licensed it personally to his upcoming Blade Movie.

In August 1998 Blade was released in cinemas and went to Number 1 on the US Box Office chart. The opening scene that featured over 4 minutes of “Confusion” propelling the vampire club blood sequence was described in the Los Angeles Times as “The coolest opening to a Movie ever”.

From that point onwards Blade and “Confusion” achieved Iconic status, it was unprecedented for a pumping acid track to be so heavily and famously used in a blockbuster movie.
The legend of “Confusion” and that frenzied opening scene has taken on a life of it’s own and the long deleted vinyl version is being re-mastered and re-released on Tim Taylor’s Missile Vintage label…This will coincide with the new 4K Ultra release of Blade The Movie in December 2020.
