In a surprising turn of evens, because they release tunes so very rarely, our friends Echoes have dropped this official reMix for Heaven 17’s Martyn Ware’s legendary B.E.F. and a track of their recent collaboration loaded album Music Of Quality & Distinction Volume 3. The track gets a single release this week, it’s the Kim Wilde featuring Every Time I See You I Go Wild.
Echoes go hard on this one. Channelling 90’s Techno and a heavy dose of modern EBM, the guys let the arpeggios fly amidst a pounding Industrial beat. The gritty, unrelenting electronic makes for a nice juxtaposition with Kim;’s soulful vocals and a light tough of strings. This is one for black clad clubbers on European dancefloors. There’s an eight minute version of the track too, if you think you can handle it.
