This project started off as a bootleg (under the name Burglar Tom) released by Phil Kieran back in 2007. Back then he was just putting out a tune he really wanted out there, cutting through the red tape. But as occasionally happens this one was too good to have such a limited release. Picked up and played by many top djs, it eventually found it's way to the ears of Bush Tetras' vocalist Cynthia Sley, via the good people at Optimo in Glasgow. She loved it. They put her in touch with Phil, and the result is this official release.
There are four tracks here, all instant dancefloor favourites. From Phil we get that original bootleg track, the appropriately names PK east village mix, with its nod to the New York scene Bush Tetras were so influential in, this is the track that will find favour on the playlist of the discerning indie disco as well as the techno scene.
There's a a new PK techno mix, and new mixes by two of the biggest names in techno: DJ Hell and Dave Clarke (here with Mr Jones under their 'Unsubscribe' alias). With the PK techno mix Phil takes the tune into familiar territory with the driving percussive techno he's so rightly lauded for.
DJ Hell, well versed in post punk having worked with the legendary electro pioneers Suicide, gives us a darker spacious electro rebuild of Phil's original track, complete with analogue sounds and some neat twists and drops along the way. The Unsubscribe mix fits it out for the big room, with the new synth riff and repetitive use of Cynthia's 'ding a ling' vocal taking us into 21st century rave territory.
