Pet Shop Boys ode to vocal dance music, Vocal, taken from their excellent Electric album get’s a full-on, nine track, reMix CD treatment at the end of this month. Nine version is a pretty chock-full package but there’s still more. Not included on the CD, but definitely worthy of your attention, is this version from Italian Housemeisters Jack And Joy.
Jack And Joy play up to the track’s motif and deliver a classic dance mix. In fact, heard blind, you’d be hard pressed to pinpoint a year or even genre for this one. There’s elements of Chicago House, Balearic vibes, 90s extended 12” mix styles and a big Trance build to accompany the Pop House piano hook. These kinds of timeless reMixes allow Pet Shop Boys to shine at their best a Neil Tennant’s vocal is left largely intact (apart from some late 80s sampling techniques) to bring it;s full emotional content to the dancefloor.
Pet Shop Bot’s Vocal reMix CD is released 29th July.
