Mockasin - Forever Dolphin Love (Erol Alkan Rework)



Mockasin - Forever Dolphin Love (Erol Alkan Rework) is one of my favourite remixes of the last years.

Connan Mockasin (born Connan Tant Hosford) is a psychedelic pop musician from New Zealand. As part of the group Connan And The Mockasins he released a couple of CDs in the mid-2000s
In 2008 he moved to Europe and since then he is working solo in the sphere between folk and pop.


Connan Mockasin released his first album „Please Turn Me into the Snat“ in 2010 on Erol Alkans label Phantasy Sound, containing the song „Forever Dolphin Love“. He describes the inspiration for the song: “It was this 1996 documentary about the dolphin’s mating process. I remember my brother found it, it was about this guy who wrote this thing on how you make love to dolphins, everything, from getting them into 1.5 feet of shallows. It’s just real sick the way he wrote it – it was really funny but it was supposed to be serious.”

The song  was reworked by Erol Alkan at Hercules Studios, London October 2010 with additional drums, keyboards and guitar and instantly became a huge sucsess in the electronic dance music world.
The London-based electro DJ of Turkish Cypriot descent is well-known in the electronic scene since 2004 when he remixed Alter Ego’s trademark techno hymn „Rocker“



The original 12“ release already changes hands for big money, but recently a second 12“ set of remixes was released which can still be purchased.

Lyrics for Forever Dolphin Love

From Big West
that never change
of Dalston
Forever Dolphin Love

Why dull steed, she has no hair
I'll talk to her
Forever Dolphin Love

And Dun's life, he's turning heads.
He talks to her
Forever Dolphin Love

From memories
that never change
of Dalston
Forever Dolphin Love

Oh Sunder, I loved her
She was to be my wife
Oh Sunder, I loved her
She was to be my wife
my wife, my wife

From Black Beans
that never change
of Dalston
Forever Dolphin Love

From Big West
that never go
of Dalston
that never back in place

From Big West
that never go
of Dalston
Forever Dolphin Love

From memories
that never change
of Dalston
Forever Dolphin Love
