The Neon Judgement – TV Treated (Jimmy Edgar / DJ Hell Remixes)
If the saying goes that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, it can certainly be said that remixing may be the sincerest form of musical respect. More than thirty years after The Neon Judgement first released “TV Treated”, the song has reached a truly legendary status. Sadly, one might add, its message is more relevant than ever today: you don’t even need to be a conspiracy theorist to see that the shining eye is inherently evil.
Small wonder, then, that illustrious DJ’s like Helmut Josef Geier aka DJ Hell, the Berlin-based electroclash pioneer, and the multi-talented Jimmy Edgar from Detroit, stateside’s techno capital, were only too happy to add their names to the long list of artists who had previously created remixes of a track that has stood the test of time in defiance of every rule of commerciality. As such, it’s a fitting introduction to what will follow… Keep your eyes and ears peeled!
‘TV Treated – The Remixes’ will be out March 30th 2015, with the ‘Time Capsule’ boxset following on April 18th.
