Much has been said about the influence of Francois Kevorkian’s mixing on Violator.
Whether he was “pedantic” (Martin’s word) or “meticulous” (Daniel Miller) or “a stickler” (Alan), Kevorkian should certainly be credited with helping shape the overall feel of the album.
As well as mixing the vast majority of the album, the DJ/producer was also let loose on a some of the single remixes.
Alongside his work on Policy of Truth (the Beat Box Mix), he also turned his attention to World In My Eyes.
As someone I interviewed for the book argued, Kevorkian’s Oil Tank Mix of World In My Eyes is a shining example of the level of intricacy and creativity he brought to entire Violator period, despite perhaps being a, err, rather challenging comrade in the studio.
