It appears that you've missed the demo for Vocal, I guess?

They once mentioned, they would like to work with Alan Wilder and I think this would be their most interesting choice to date.

Bit suprising Roosevelt and Coma aren't a big issue on this board as, especially in combination, they produce a sound one would expect from PSB in 2020. They should clearly be involved in any further realisation of a PSB record.

If I could choose, I'd want him to come back to produce a new albuum. But the best option could be Trevor Horn + younger producer. Not only one.

I don't get how people can praize electric bangers and being bored of Horn huge production. I think Fundamental was one of their finest album and i would like them to do an album before going back with a more light production. I think i read somewhere Trevor would like to work with them again. It's maybe an opportunity to take.

Well ok, that is one where we are talking a whole new backing track essentially...but that one appears to be more the exception not the rule. I suspect if you are like me you have a fairly nice amount of their demos thru the years, and generally the finished product on whatever album sounds just like the demo. I suspect most of these producers are used more for polish rather than re imagining what they give them.

Another Horn track would be great, but if anyone I’d like them to do one more album with the great Stephen Hague. But still say ARTBAT (listen to Atlas) or Kolsch would be interesting direction sonically.

Agree re: the Kovac album, I was disappointed with the Twenty Something remix as I felt he was capable of a lot better. Although as a track, rather than remix, it’s pretty good. I love that track by Icarus,featuring Real Lies, ‘Man of the Land’
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

Jackson - Hell yes. He just proved himself with some great remixes and also listenable solo tracks.
Horn - Always welcome, but just need the over-the-top bombastic brilliance of Left to my own devices.
Hague - Possibly. Would probably sound a bit retro. May be a worthwhile project to try.
Dawson - F**k off.

Their 2020s Stephen Hague is Tim Powell

That of David Jackson proves he can be a good remix Thats All ! Im not seeing material for more than that

I agree it would be good to have a 2 track per producer album, it wouldnt be coherent with the sound but its proven that that is artist wishful thinking, Chris wanted So Hard out of Behaviour !!! And they had to make a cover alas Always on my mind of Where the streets have no name (I can't take my eyes off you) by U2 to get more radio attention in order to get Performance tour interest as How can you expect to be taken seriously? was really not that great as single alone, Streets did well in europe (4 Uk)

I rather have hits on my album than coherence.
So...
Trevor Horn 2 tracks
Tim Powell 2 tracks
Richard X 2 tracks
Daft Punk 2 tracks (hey we are dreaming right)
Hans Zimmer 2 tracks ( you need an orchestral to start a big album and a melancholic ballad at the end similar to It Couldnt Happen Here )

You are welcome

And btw fire the remix guy, he is cool and all that but you need to step up your game here

Everything RL have done up to now is bloody excellent. So that would be an interesting choice, too.
