An unusual compilation and typical late 80’s with liberal use of samples. From Swedish DJ subscrition service, Remixed Records. Set up to rival Disconet and Hot Tracks.
The first track sounds Prince-like. It’s from Swedish duo Jean-Paul Wall and Pål Pettersson as Surfturf. Cheesy lyrics and plenty of cash references
Mixed by Swedish DJ Emil Hellman part of the Swemix team. (He also did track 8 and 10)
Pretty Poison was the Philadelphia-based dance group co-formed by Jade Starling and Whey Cooler. This was a hit from 1986. Here remixed by Stonebridge (Sten Olof Hallström), adding more thrashing guitars but keeping it synthy and Eurodance in style.
The House Constructors re-rub Jellybean’s “Jingo” , adding scratching and messing with the bass squelch and a bit of aciiid!
Classic old skool from Kid N Play. Beefier bass and a bit of “Walk On The Wildside” – remixed by Robert Borman. All the breaks are included.
Really like the Cabaret Voltaire mix, given a funky guitar, looped drums and more brass stabs. Still has the backing vocals and the strange sax riff. A different bass is added too amongst a ton of edits.
Ofra Haza has here famous “Im Nin’ Alu” . Mixed by Dag Volle tries to keep the original song arrangement and adds some frantic beats and a jarring bass. A bit of a dog’s dinner, too much going on.
Love this Jamie Principle track in it’s original form, this is very x-rated and nice ‘n sleazy. Aciiiid!
Coldcut get their track even more Housed up, bubbling acid bassline, drops and those samples. Yaz on backing vocals.
Denniz Pop (Dag Volle) cuts and pastes his way with a funky bit of house and a little bit like AON’s “Dragnet”
The compilation ends with the sliding beats of Climie Fisher’s “Rise To The Occasion”
