Sometimes you meet former friends and don’t recognize them at first. There can be various reasons for this. Sometimes you have forgotten what the other person looked like. Sometimes the other person has changed dramatically within a few years (mostly to his disadvantage) and in some cases you had just closed with people from the past.

Similar thoughts come to mind when looking at the compilation “Blank Jones Present so8Os (so eighties) Vol. 9 “listens. The Cologne DJ and producer duo has collected 31 songs from the 80s on three CDs that they had previously unearthed in archives.

Remixes and Extended Versions

These include big hits from Fleetwood Mac, Blondie, Joe Cocker, Madness and Jimmy Cliff. But blank Jones have also tracked down songs that did not reach an audience of millions 30 years ago: “Radio Africa” ​​by Latin Quarter or “Closest Thing To Heaven” by The Kane Gang missed the top 15 in England and did not even make it in Germany so far.

It applies to all songs that they are remixes, extended versions or generally alternative mixes. Responsible for this on the controllers were, among others Greats like Arthur Baker, Jellybean, Francois Kevorkian or Latin Rascals. Some of it still sounds fresh and exciting today: “Missing You” by John Waite, Sade’s “Paradise” or “Our House” by Madness, which has already been heard a thousand times, are a pleasure to listen to again. At “One Small Day” by Ultravox you dance with tears in your eyes. You suddenly realize what great pop anthems Midge Ure and Co. created at the time.

Exciting cross-section through the 80s

In contrast, the extended remix of “Pictures Of You” destroys the original dark power of the Cure classic. What remains is a bland something. New Orders “Touched By The Hand Of God” is also more handy and compact in the original than the confused Dub version on this sampler. One-hit wonders like “Precious Little Diamond” (Fox The Fox) or “Break My Stride” (Matthew Wilder) were rightly suppressed. The original was annoying – the remixes are no less.

Overall, this compilation offers an exciting cross-section through the 80s. You can make new friends with songs you didn’t know or perceive once (Afrika Bambaata’s “Planet Rock” or Duran Duran’s “All She Wants Is”), you can indulge in memories (The Cars “Hello Again”, Gino Vanelli “Wild Horses “) or just enter the dance floor.
