The wonderful people at EMI have just released David Bowie’s classic song Space Oddity as a digital EP featuring four different original versions of the track.

But the real highlight is that they include a copy of the original 8-track master for download, enabling you to make your own remix using a DAW or your iPhone.

Here is my remix:

Space Oddity – Martin Berka Remix

I also did a version that’s almost completely acoustic:

Space Oddity – close to the core mix

Space Oddity

Produced by Gus Dudgeon

Arranged by David Bowie and Paul Buckmaster

By the way: The guitar Bowie is holding in the photograph is an Espana 12-string from the Sixties, which was made by Landola in Finland.
