The most straightforward translation here is the edit of Gerry & The Holograms' eponymous single. A well-known precursor to "Blue Monday," the Manchester band's slimy, drumless track gets a New Order-referencing makeover in J.D. Twitch's version. Unlike previous reworks of the song, it sounds lifted from the same decade as the original, which reveals just how in step Twitch is with his source material. As Kübler-Ross, Dave Clark (AKA Sparky) covers "Victims Of Victimless Crime" by minimal synth pioneer John Bender, and he, too, maintains the music's skeletal arrangement and natural energy. The female singer Clark brings along sounds more self-assured and affected than Bender did, and her tone helps embolden the cover for modern soundsystems.
Only two tracks from So Low: Remixes might make it onto dance floors. German electro-pop band P1/E, who sounded like a vampiric Kraftwerk back in 1980, get remixed by Powell. He tears "49 Second Romance" to pieces, collaging the shreds of anemic synth and waifish drum machines back together with burps of electronic noise and found sound. As per usual, Powell leaves a few pockets of wonky groove behind. Hauff takes on early Belgian industrial duo The Klinik, turning their angsty "Moving Hands" into a fiery techno belter. It's such a strong, well-executed track that it could just as easily turn you on to the original as make you forget it was a remix.
