Even if you are literally New Order, having a Hot Chip remix adorn your single must still be very exciting. Can they do any wrong? It seems not: their version of New Order’s Tutti Frutti has the glorious pop sensibility and the deep dancefloor authority that you’d expect from the Chip guys. The CD version comes with remixes from 3 other artists too. On Mute.
5/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 December 2015
In the list of bad ideas pairing the recent New Order with hopeless dance pop nerds Hot Chip has to rank up there with whoever invented winter.
If it’s at all possible to make New Order’s last album even more tinny and ineffective than it already is, then Hot Chip have managed it. Theirs is a horrid slice of dance pop that somehow manages to take out any last remaining oomph that the chorus once had. I don’t know a lot about dancing but can people really dance to this? There’s an achingly bad synth trill after the chorus that goes on forever and the highlight is Bernard Sumner’s vocal. I never thought I’d ever say that.
‘Tutti Frutti’ is in fact one of the better tracks of New Order's latest limp pigs ear of an album and that’s only because it possesses something of a chorus that at least hints towards their past work but play this next to something….anything off ‘Technique’ and it’s immediately obvious just how far they’ve fallen.
The CD version has a bunch of other mixes that I never want to hear.
