[Audio] Stuart Price reMixes Pet Shop Boys

pet shop boys

When  you’re reMixing SynthPop legends Pet Shop Boys, do you try an bee all hip with whatever sounds are packing dancefloors at the time, or do you think “fuck it” and go all mid-80s reMix? It seems like producer extraordinaire Stuart Price wisely took the latter path and had dropped a track that could comfortable sit on the B-side of any number of 1985-1987 PSB 12”s, albeit with a little more contemporary studio slickness.

As well as drawing comparisons to Shep Pettibone’s classic, pumping, PSB reMixes, Stuart Price’s take on their new single, Memory Of The Future, surprisingly feels like it has a load of mid-80s Front 242 in it’s DNA. The fact that this Extended Mix sounds like extended mixes of our youth is giving us a nostalgic glow. With it’s vintage drum sounds, digital bass and icy pads, this Price mix obviously goes perfectly with Tennant’s vocal, this kind of track is what we’re most used to hearing him on. An excellent update to the classic PSB sound, this one is going to be on repeat for a while.

[Video] Goin’ Old School: Heaven 17, The Human League & Pet Shop Boys

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

Followed swiftly be a 1981 performance of Don’t You Want Me by The Human League.

Pet Shop Boys’ ‘Leaving’ video

Here’s the video for the second single from Pet Shop Boys new album, Elysium. Both the track and the clip are classic PSB.

Classy, black & white, and amazingly British. The video, along with the track, sum up everything about Pet Shop Boys we love.

Pet Shop Boys’ ‘Winner’ video

This is the video for Pet Shop Boys’ new single Winner. An epic SynthPop tune that is, completely coincidentally, about winning stuff, just in time for the Olympics.

Timing cynicism aside, this is the kind of thing only Pet Shop Boys can get away with. And Roller Derby would make a much better Olympic sport than running fast or throwing stuff. All inclusive too!

Winner is released on 6thAugust.

Here it is! The first new track from Pet Shop Boys highly anticipated forthcoming new album, ‘Elysium’.

Put together by Brian Bress, Pet Shop Boys and Andrew Dawson, they call it a short film for the track. How that differes from amusic video I have no idea, but they are Pet SHop BOys, I’ll take their word for it. The track is blissful, haunting and pure PSB. Excited.

Goin’ Old School: Pet Shop Boys, Ultravox & Whodini

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

One of Pet Shop Boys’ finest moments (and that’s saying something), 1986’s ‘Suburbia’.

1982’s biggest anthem in the form of Ultravox’s ‘Hymn’. Epic!

It’s 1982, Hip Hop is about to get as cool as it ever will with  Whodini’s ‘ Magic’s Wand’.
