This is one of those 12”s where you get pretty much an entire LP of mixes of one song. I’m sorry but I’m not reviewing all of them. On the first side there’s the original, an instrumental and an a capella, and then on the other side there’s the Zeus B Held Voice Versa Remix, Doldrums Remix and Herve Retro Dark Dub.
The song itself is a plodding and ominous bit of darkpop with a slight coldwave feel. A metronomic, sparse drumbeat with a strangely heavy and physical sound (did they have drum machines in Machu Picchu and Palenque? It’s not for me to say), some chilly minimal synth and cold half-spoken half-chanted vocals add up to a tolerable bit of techno-pop. It’s alright but I’m far from blown away.
