DAF Vs. Georgio Moroder

I swear our once over played old school cassette copy of ‘methods of dance’ is wearing a little thin around the parts where sit, Snakefinger’s strangely fruity cover of Kraftwerk’s ‘the model’ and DAF’s seminal ‘Der Mussolini’. The latter mentioned are shortly to have their lasting legacy celebrated with the issue of a box set entitled ‘Das Ist DAF’ – a release gathering together a quartet of the collectives most famous early 80’s albums. Among the track listing you’ll find an updated rewire of the aforementioned legendary ‘Der Mussolini’ with Georgio Moroder and Denis Naidanow at the mixing desk. Okay it might lack the sweaty and throbbing adrenalin dosed thrust and oompah of the original, yet what this pair bring to the plate is the busy soldering of a floor romping retro futurist flashing to the template and into the bargain pumping up the club floor quotient by some devilishly subtle fusing of ‘I feel love’ motifs to hotten up the lust factor.
