all year. It will satisfy both the fans they have picked up with their own releases, or their much heralded reworkings (Of NERD’s ‘Lapdance’, Xpress2’s ‘Lazy’ or Elton John’s ‘Are You Ready For Love to name but three), but also fans of classic pop music in the making. A song that fits on the dancefloor or equally on your i-Pod. The real revelation of here is the songwriting. For an outfit previously known mostly for revising and augmenting other people’s songs, it comes as an almighty hallelujah that Freeform Five’s secret weapon is an arsenal of catchy choruses, melodies and hooks…And with not a single faceless Scandinavian hitmaker-for-hire in sight.
Remixes come courtesy of London’s Grand National who deliver a harmonic pop reworking, Berlin production team Mandy with a straight ahead club banger, Freeform Five’s Anu Pillau, with another classic floor shaker in his trademark Freeform Reform guise and finally, comes the roof-raising stomper from a very well known outfit moonlighting under the moniker Six Fingers.
Strangest Things is released on July 5th 2004
