After a busy 2014 with some superb projects with ZTT and Alphaville, Blank & Jones return in the New Year with volume nine of their long running, and now highly regarded, so80s (SoEighties) series. If you are unfamiliar with them, these collect rare, overlooked and often unreleased-on-CD twelve-inch remixes from the 1980s, where possible sourced from the analogue master tapes.
Volume 8 (released in May 2013) was arguably the best yet, so anticipation will be high for this new three-CD set. The Cologne-based pair are still working on this project so no final track listings are available but they have revealed that this new set will include The Cure‘s Pictures Of You (Extended Re-Mix), the Extended Version of John Waite‘s Missing You and a few ‘sought after’ dub versions including one from New Order.
This will come with a 40-page booklet with original cover art and extensive liner notes. It will be released on 6 February 2015.
