We haven’t really heard from French producer Ace Attack in quite a while, but he’s just released a new EP, for free no less. And it just goes to prove that the man hasn’t been sitting on his laurels, he’s obviously been busy down in the studio and now it;s time for him to, as it says on the tin, come out of hiding.
The EP is basically a collection of reMixes, two of the tracks are billed as originals, but are based so strongly on existing tracks they might as well be reMixes too, in fact the EP is called ‘Ace Attack reMixes’. The lead track on the EP is ‘Out Of Hiding’, which is based on, or a reMix of, Pamela Stanley’s Italo/Hi-NRG classic ‘Coming Out Of Hiding’ from 1983. Ace Attack brings the track right up to date but keeps the retro flavour of the track. It’s a really good choice of vocal to use, realty period sounding and Ace Attacks works them for every drop of Italo goodness. While not actually doing much to the original track, Ace Attack certainly make it more friendly to contemporary dancefloors. The rest of the EP continues updating classic tracks, sometimes subtly in the case of ‘Running Back to You’, sometimes getting a complete makeover in the case of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’. Renaming reMixes as original tracks is a bit weird, but you can’t fault the music, top quality retro Electro & Disco. Pick up the EP and find out.
