Despite their advancing years, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe seem to have rekindled their love of dancing all night. It's perhaps no surprise, then, that their most upbeat single for yonks (a love letter to clubbing with production from Stuart Price and some particularly bold trance style riffs) comes backed with a plethora of club-friendly reworks. There's not space to go into detail about each and every rubm, but look out for a pleasingly 808 cowbell-laden synth-house rub from Cucarachas, a colossal chunk of EDM madness from Nacho Chapanda & Ivan Gomez (all booming, military percussion and nagging electro riffs), and an unashamedly anthemic rework from WAWA that emphasizes Stuart Price's big synth riffs.
Given the bizarre and sometimes dubious choices of remixers for Pet Shop Boys releases, it's good to see Tensnake stepping up to rework their latest attempt at reconnecting with their dance music roots. Whereas the original (not included here) is a cheery celebration of weekend-long hedonism featuring raps from Example (clearly a better mic man than occasional rapper Chris Lowe), Tensnake's version is dark and hypnotic, all warped basslines, delay-laden vocals and bleary-eyed afterparty chic. If the original is all about excitement for weekends to come, Tensnake's remix is all about still being up on Monday morning, dancing in some dingy Berlin basement. That's no bad thing.
