Only released to DJs in the U.S
Hence it's "out there somewhere". Promo CD? Limited edition 12" single? Digital remix services?

Please advise as to the "only released to DJs" bit. Is it actually out now?

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

That moment on Will-o-the-wisp where the analogue synths filter sweep upward in the intro and then the kick drum comes in is just thrilling. Pure magic. It's moments like that when you realise what a great match Stuart Price is with the PSB's. I'd be very happy if they never worked with another pro...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Thanks Remark, now i don't have to write my review as you have described 99% of the way i feel regarding all the tracks on Hotspot, are you planning on any mixes yet...i'm sure there must be a Will-O-The-Wisp (Remark Extended Mix) simmering away. Thanks so much! So glad our Hotspot feelings and res...

Do we want more Releases (as in Release clones) from the PSB or should they just retire?
I'd take Release clones for the remainder of their years before retirement!

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

First I must acknowledge Dog’s review and summary, which I agree with 100%! Completely feeling the same things. :clap: I think they have given us a rich album here, one which will bring decades of pleasure, and one which gives them a new seam to mine, that subtly shifts away from the lasers and the ...

Re: Monkey Business Official Video

Not a fan of this kind of vids neither was it worth it back then made me happy, dj culture to name one was far better video, those clubs videos are predictible, I hope it was just them walking in the street like in West End girls but in Berlin, is it that hard to get them walking in front of a came...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Totally agree that Stuart revitalized them. Electric is my second favourite PSB album after Actually. Incredible work. Can't wait to hear Hotspot in its entirety, from start to finish. Keep the reviews and opinions coming!

Re: Monkey Business Official Video

Extraordinary video. Now this is exactly what we / they needed! Several of us were recently debating in another thread about why the PSB abandoned video as a format and that if they took it seriously they could still do some amazing things — and this video is proof of that!! Imagine if we had this a...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

None of the three released so far are really “wow they’re back” tracks are they? I loved Electric and was hoping that the more dance-orientated approach was one they were going to take (which is what they are best at in my opinion) Both of these comments are so relevant to me. Personally, I love 99...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Given a choice - I'd have Decide on the album instead of this but lets see if repeat listens and listening in context of the album will change my views. Agreed. Been listening to Monkey Business on repeat this morning. Wasn't "wowed" at first, but it's got a catchy groove and grown on me a bit. Kin...

Re: Questions for Neil

And being brutally honest - PSB are too old and unattractive (on different levels) for new generations of listeners. Videos level is one of them. No one needs to see them on the screen - a bald wrinkled guy with a more and more prominent belly and a living mummy. I know it sounds very rude, but I t...

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

I wonder whether PSB considered Decide for the final track on HotSpot? It feels like the perfect climax, much as Integral was for Fundamental. I know exactly what you mean and was feeling the same vibes! It's that oh-so-perfect-climactic-orchestral-strings bit at the end! After Effen Vida's review ...
