6/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 09 October 2012
Crazy hard-partying sexpot Peaches has a new 12” here for us with six different versions of the same song, giving plenty of choice for the DJ and a tedious slog for the those who choose to listen to the record from start to finish. The sleeve boasts a photo which Business Lady proclaims is a “really bad gig face. The sort of photo you ask people to untag you from on Facebook, not put on your record cover.”
We’ve got the original mix to kick things off, which is a techno-house pumper with sultry spoken verses and a singy chorus. It’s pretty bouncy but she doesn’t seem to still have that cheeky rough-around-the-edges bite that she had in her early days. Phil reckons she’s lost her edge. Maybe she’s been spending too much time around the Flaming Lips. In fairness though this is gonna sound great on your dancefloor, it’s like a more aggressive Sophie Ellis Bextor.Of the remixes, the Planningtorock one is interesting me the most, with slow-building textures on a pulsing minimal techno beat and the vocals slowed right down to a fluttering alien croon alongside some abrasive electric bloops and soft, slow melodies. If you’re looking to get people moving, though, the Bart B More mix is a neon club-banger with lots of cheeky percussive melodies and deft, fast-moving breaks for a pulsating cut that’s both spacious and lively and throws some welcome ‘80s electro elements into the techno-pop mix for a shamelessly fun dancefloor filler. Less convinced by his dub mix that follows (BL says it “sounds like 1993”, so 1993 fans might be interested) but you can’t win ‘em all, eh?
