I’ve known quite a few dj’s in my time and for many it’s the thrill of having that exclusive remix that no one has hence the DMC subscription service, a remix service from the UK which still exists, founded by Tony Prince. DMC started first in February 1983 with cassettes, then in July 1984 they left the cassettes and started issuing on vinyl. There were one or more records with mixes and one or more records with previews.
This was from ’92 and contains 4 mixes and with most DMC stuff it can be a bit of a mixed bag. Club 69 (Peter Rauhofer) is given a routine remix by Sure Is Pure with bleeps working alongside piano, a bit of HiNRG feel to it. Terrorize (Shaun Imrei) has more of a rave feel to it care of Kevin Saunderson and Stacey Pullen with crystallized synth stabs and “wind effects”, a classic just made bigger.
The best mixes are the 80’s re-rubs. The Human League classic is given a mid-Eastern flavour by Steve Anderson. Bronski Beat is updated by Phil Kelsey, making it quicker and adding some ravey synths.
