Heaven 17 – (We Don’t Need This)Fascist Groove Thang ’93 Mixes (12″)


Seem’s to be recurring theme here, repolished for the 90’s. From 1993 and remixed in an Italian House style by Charlie Mallozi and Marco Sabiu (the Rapino Brothers.) Released to promote a the best of compilation, “Higher And Higher”, not sure if it works, it is a quick as the original but has had a complete overhaul with shiny but tinny synths, re-recorded vocals and repetitive sax samples , nah, trying too hard for the dancefloors in my opinion. The “Democratic Rapino” Mix is just bearable, sitting with the Ibiza chilled groove.

  1. I think the only really good remixes that came out of this period, and did give the band a public boost were those for Temptation.

  2. Definitely agree that they were “trying too hard” with this one. Any chance of getting a re-up on their great Play To Win/Play single? Always liked that version and especially the instrumental B-Side. Thanks.

    1. I’ll dig that one out for you. I know over the next week you can judge for yourself if 90’s remixes of 80’s stuff work, most don’t!

  3. these remixes were awful, albeit I bought them. Stick to the original.
