Blondie – Denis / Rapture ’88 Remixes (12″)

blondieI feel a bit of a remix/megamix evening coming on (Thanks Mike B!)

From 1988 and to promote an album of Blondie Dance Remixes. 1977 release “Denis” gets all synthpop on a remix by Danny D (before he went all Aciied with DMob), a bit too gimmicky and lightweight for my ears but maybe of interest to fans.

“Rapture” gets a rework by Terry Riley and Gene Griffin over the production of Mike Chapman in a New Jack style, scratches and cuts abound but the hook is still there..just

The “Dub” is really not a dub mix, keeping the vocals and rap in (they do sound rerecorded) and adding more JFK samples. Both mixes are quite similar in fact but this one works..
