HEAVEN 17 Retox/Detox

HEAVEN 17 Retox/DetoxA very worthwhile tribute to one of the original creators of electro music (We are talking 1978 here!) by some of the artists and producers influenced by the group. The dense mix of Heaven 17 early electro-pop lends itself freely to being torn apart and reassembled in any number of combinations. Singles like ‘Temptation’ (used in the Trainspotting club scene), ‘Penthouse and Pavement’, and ‘Let Me Go’ are all given respectful and radical facelifts by names like Adrian Sherwood, the Rhthym Masters, and Freddie Fresh among others. It is actually probably more educational for old fans who might snub modern dance music’s lack of lyrical substance, than for those who don’t know the group. That said, there is some very innovative arrangements and lessons for house producers about mixing intelligent vocals in intellegently. Worthy of the group.
