No doubt inspired by the Eurythmics or The Human League, Corrugated Tunnel unleash this rather 80s-tinged synth wonder. Featuring vocals from Antoinette, this is quite cool with remixes coming from Edwin James, Jay Riordan, Shane Robinson and Ronnie Foster. There's also an instrumental of the original mix.
As mentioned above, this is an 80s-tinged synth-based electro tune. Its also got masses of club credentials too with the remixes aimed squarely at the dancefloor. Of the six versions on here, its the club mix by Edwin James that takes my fancy most; with its minimalist and simplistic atructure with hints of acid thrown in for good measure.
The other mixes though are just as good. The Dirty Works mix by Ronnie Foster is dirtier and the beats are slowed down in pace to give a more progressive and funk-led remix. The bassline is acidic so it has an old-skool feel to it. Shane Robinson goes for an early 90s-style re-rub; opting for a more organic Hed Kandi-style remix with essenses of rumbles and thumping drums. Jay Riordan goes minimal on his version with a dub-meets-club mix. I didn't feel this one as much as the other mixes though unforunately.
This one will appeal to the 80s synth fans and may well appeal to fans of cool dance music. Quite good.
