Official releases are a strange thing. So often I hear remixes from artists I love that were officially commissioned and then shelved in favour of generic PopHouseTrance from the likes of Freemasons or Stargate, despite being more interesting, more musically adept, and having more groove than the throwaway versions that end up on the single.
Such is the case here with reMixes of Kylie Minogue’s summer hit ‘Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)’ from a couple of amazing producers Monsieur Adi and Blue Satellite. I won’t bother talking about the competent, but ultimately generic dross that made the release, but they aren’t a patch on Adi’s impressive, multi-layered, edgy Electro track that throws a bit of everything into the mix, all kept in check by Adi’s mastery of his music. Or Blue Satellite’s track, which would have been a perfect summer Disco anthem, I can’t help feeling Kylie’s label missed a trick there (I’m not sure if BS’s was actually commissioned, but either way they still missed out).
Kylie’s ‘Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)’ single is out now.
