I was very much looking forward to hearing this as both Moby and Debbie Harry have made such an impact on the music scene over the years, but unfortunately I wasn’t so happy with the outcome.

Tocadisco’s NYPD Mix has a nice big beat start to it with a cool “minor key” underground feel. The input of a police car siren just didn’t do it for me though. The track has a really nice electro funk feel and I can definitely see this possibly getting airtime a bit in the future. I wasn’t a great fan of any of the other remixes though. The Armand Van Helden Long Version has a cheesy start to the track. The clap sounds are very old school. The Emperor Machine Ext Remix is a more chillout version. The Jeremy Wheatley Remix sounds too much like the Armand Van Helden version. The vocals do get cheesy part way through, which is a shame as any track that had a fighting chance of being good is ruined by the mid-way vocal. The Radio Slave Remix is a very long track. 13 minutes is just too much and I’m unsure how anyone is expected to remain interested in it for that amount of time. It takes a good 5 minutes to build up and still doesn’t actually go anywhere. There are also no vocals in this track either which is good in a way to remove the cheese factor, but if it was halved in length and titled as an instrumental track then it might have been more appealing.
