ABC – The Look Of Love (Special Remix) (DJ Promo 12″)

ImageMore rare stuff with this Trevor Horn remixed track from back in 1982 (I couldn’t believe how early this was!) and a full synth work out of the much loved ABC track. Full of studio trickery that he would later employ with the Art Of Noise and the early ZTT stuff. We have the vocals sped up and slowed down, the bass synth given central stage and the strings dubbed around with. A special remix that had the same track on both sides ssssssssssssooooooooo I recorded it twice, version 2 being the ever so slightly cleaner.
