REVIEW: Pet Shop Boys - The Pop Kids [Remixes] out on x2 Rec.

Pet Shop Boys have announced recently via MixMag Premiere on Soundcoud a remix package of “The Pop Kids”, to be released on March 18th. The release will consist of four tracks remixed by MK, Offer Nissim and a deep dub by Pet Shop Boys themselves.

Among the producers who have remixed the single for this release is acclaimed DJ and producer MK (Marc Kinchen), whose dub mix of “The Pop Kids” marks 23 years since his last remix for Pet Shop Boys -  their 1993 single “Can You Forgive Her?”

“The Pop Kids” was produced and mixed by Stuart Price. The ‘PSB deep dub’ and ‘The full story’ versions are remixes by Pet Shop Boys including additional vocals and, in the case of “The full story”, an extra verse which brings the story of The Pop Kids up to the present. 

Their new album „Super“ will be released worldwide on April 1st and can be pre-ordered now.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The MK Dub mix is truly awesome. Deep dark fat old school basslines, warm strings and distorted vocal samples to transform the pop kids into the perfect club kids. PSB Deep Dub Mix is great for those who want to concentrate on the great electronic melodies with some vocal snippets upon the deep pulsating basslines and thumping grooves. Offer Nissim Drama Mix is epic full of melodramatic moments and great energy that runs throughout and charge your adrenaline levels. Superb return for Pet Shop Boys with lyrics that stand out and make you think that no country better for modern electronic pop than UK. Big love to both of them. Love It[/content]
