The reviews of the Play Paul remix below are a bit harsh.It's got a driving, peak time Electroclash vibe. I could totally imagine it being played back in the mid-2000s alongside acts like Punx Soundcheck & Exchpoptrue.It's also got a bit of a warehouse rave undertone. Sharp hi-hats, (understated) '91 style riffs and a massive bass drop halfway through that is guaranteed to activate the rush :PIt seemed that Electroclash got a bad rep almost as soon as it started due to it's trashy, hedonistic nature. Whatever.You can stick to your deep, soulful house if that's what you prefer. That's not my cup of tea, but you don't see me pissing in your garden.

Can someone tell me something about the quality of the original mix though? Mastered well or bad quality?Cheers

This Gigolo 12" sounds more punchy and is quite a bit louder than the more recent Vinyl-on-demand reissue.However, the Vinyl-on-demand reissue does sound a little more defined. Especially in the high range (hi-hats sound more crisp).But it's not something you'll notice unless you compare A-B. You can buy either and be happy.I still haven't had the chance to buy an original '84 press (it's especially difficult to justify having two decent copies already), but once I do I will update my findings.

This is maybe the worst reissue i've ever seen in my entire Life. The original 'glowing in the dark ep' consists of three outstanding tracks, each one definitely worth buying it. Michael Gross, highly talented Producer of the Original, is one of the most credible persons in the music business, with a true 'stay behind' Attitude. This Bulk-Label puts the legendary Original Title-Track of 1984 on the A-Side; and a desastrous remix by a newbie without any serious background on the B-Side. Not only a shame compared to the Original, but also a shame for itself. I'm at least glad they 'protected' the other two tracks from being released on this crappy Label. Sometimes the sleeves and labels underline it's content. Gigolo records with it's muscular snob is the actual design; "No nonsense Music" was printed on the Original Label in 1984 - Thanks to some fake remixers sometimes the worst nightmare becomes true.

Don't you just love Gigolo Records? How any label can put one side of a record an absolutely blinding classic electro-pop tune and on the other a remix that dredges the very depths of 'electrocla$h'. The 'Play Paul Mix' embodies everything that has pushed away the stalwart fans of the label. It is formulaic and tedious. May as well just take an angle grinder to the B side and have yourself a limited edition one sided version. An opportunity sadly missed to repress some more rare Experimental Products tracks.
