Pet Shop Boys

Monkey Business

    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.

    Say It To Me - Inc. Real Lies / Tom Demac / Offer Nissim / Stuart Price Remixes

      You don't sell over 50 million records worldwide or become the most successful duo in UK music history without knowing a thing or two about a decent tune, and Pet Shop Boys bring their cultivated taste to the fore for this expertly curated remix 12" of recent single "Say It To Me". First up to the plate are London's foremost punk-funkers Real Lies, who follow up a festival smashing summer with this dreamy, dopamine infused rework of the legendary duo. Skittering rhythms and swelling synths abound as the London trio make everything soft and hazy. Next up Tom Demac brings some of the bass-heavy club sound he's dropped on Aus and Hypercolour, transforming the lovelorn original into a skipping and swinging UK house monster which should get plenty of mainroom play in the coming months. Over on the B1, Eurovision winner and occasional Brian Cox lookalike Offer Nissim takes the reins, showing us exactly why he's bagged four appearances in DJ Mag's Top 100, with a shimmering glitter-tinged house rework for the sophisticated dancefloor. Elegant and euphoric, this is the audio equivalent of necking GHB at a designer fashion show. Finally, super producer and man of many names Stuart Price delivers an alternate mix of his album version, layering tropical sounding keys and dizzying fx over a swaying beat. It's another winner from the mighty Pet Shop Boys.

      Super

        Pet Shop Boys release their brand new studio album, 'Super'. Produced and mixed by Stuart Price in Los Angeles, it features 12 new Tennant / Lowe compositions including the lead single, 'The Pop Kids’.

        Continuing the more upbeat themes and sounds set by 2013's 'Electric', 'Super' takes its influences from the duo's 1980s and 90s heyday, referencing synth-pop and early 90s house, along with more up to date EDM sounds to great effect.

        Electric

          Pet Shop Boys return in triumphant form with their new studio album 'Electric', the first to appear on their own label x2 and produced by Stuart Price.

          'Electric' features nine tracks in total - eight brand new Pet Shop Boys' songs plus a cover of Bruce Springsteen's 'The Last To Die'. The result is as uncompromising a collection of dance anthems as Pet Shop Boys have ever made.

          Pet Shop Boys said: "'Electric' is very much set on the dance floor. Our latest album often evolves as a response to our previous album and, whereas 'Elysium' had a reflective mood, 'Electric' is pretty banging! And working with Stuart Price on a studio album is something we have wanted to do for a very long time".
