Blue Monday is one of the most iconic songs of all times. Bridging the disco era with what became a house and techno explosion in the UK, New Order created a timeless classic that’s still referenced today as one of the most influential tracks of all time. Last month New Order headlined SONAR festival in Barcelona and when we were asked to take part in SONAR+D – the educational arm of the famous festival – it was a no-brainer to take on the New Order classic in one of our world-famous deconstructions.
We enlisted the help of deconstruction maestro and PB instructor Ski Oakenfull – watch the video above and download the project used by Ski here.
New Order’s Blue Monday was a landmark track when it was released in 1983 and remains highly influential 33 years later
