It’s not a secret that I’ve been waiting for this release since the announcement of the re-issue way back when. I’ve been a fan of Tiga since the first time I heard is stripped down electro version of “Hot in Herre.” His mix on !K7 played over and over and over on various listening devices throughout the years. In short, I’m a fan of this Montrealer and yet I’ve still never seen him play. Boo.
The remixes for the re-issue of “Sunglasses at Night” are all over the place in terms of stylings. ALTER EGO cuts up a super glitzy bass heavy stomper that barely leaves any of the original melody while KONRAD BLACK keeps things minimal with a dubbed techno version. POPOF gets two takes – the first of which delivers a bleepy thunderous pounding ideal for dark rooms big and small. The second keeps more of Corey Hart’s iconic synth line providing a perfect electro hook with the combination of pogo beats. D.I.M. brews ominous dark moods and pours more electro-flavoured stabs over modulated bass. Oh, the original version Tiga and ZYNTHERIUS (the self-declaired God of Synth) is still deluxe. You can pick them all up at BEATPORT.
