Yello ‎– La Habanera – Hands On Yello (The Remixes) (US Promo 2 x 12″)

I’ve had a long love affair with these 2 crazy Swiss eccentrics as can be seen littered through out this beast of a blog. I recently bought the Deluxe edition of their latest album “Toy” and it cost me over £30 quid, collecting their stuff is pricey. So when Mike whipped this one out of his digital bag I was amazed! £65 quid not including shipping. Hands up to Mike nevermind Hands On!!

The “Hands On…” project saw Yello collaborate with some big European producers and remixers in the mid 90’s (Jam & Spoon, Westbam, Moby) to try and cement their relevance in dance music. I didn’t think they needed to do it, they are followed not followers and it smelt a bit like a sell out. Most of the stuff I’ve got and as a fan I was quite disappointed, Emperor’s New Clothes and that…God even Boris started to dress like a Home Boy!!

    Thanks for sharing. I have to agree with you about the “Hands on” project, not my fave stuff by Yello… they do so much better by them selves.
