Monkey Business

About this item

The U.K.'s most successful musical duo continue to absolutely nail synth-pop satire on their latest LP "Hotspot", offering arch observations on the endless banality of modern existence over a slew of boogie-tinged electronic jams which manage to befriend the club, radio and home stereo alike. Our own Kickin' Pigeon was raving about this lead single a couple of weeks back when he heard it on the beeb (other radio stations are available) and he was bang on the money, highlighting the slick strings, cascading horns and sweet sequences as well as the life affirming lyrics. Alongside the exuberance of the original mix, we get a softer and spacier variant from Prins Thomas and a pumping filter-house refix from Friend Within, as well as non album track "At Rock Bottom", which seems to sing out from the depths of a month long come down.
