A bit of a double A -side with quite different mixes of Republica’s 2 killer hits. Smash (Canadian DJ Vincent Degiorgio) synths up “Ready To Go” with a bubbling bassline, sequencers and the original guitar licks and vocals. The Extended Club Mix is nearer to the original. Riprock (Brad Daymond) turns “Drop Dead Gorgeous” into a frantic tech-house. Cutting up Saffron’s vocals on the dub and adding heavy 4 to the floor beats and hard sequencers over swirling guitar and vocals on the main mix. It literally does take off into an acid meltdown!
