INFO > Le Tour de France 2014 comes to an end this weekend. Recorded 80 years after the race’s first staging in 1903, Kraftwerk’s classic single “Tour De France” celebrates the epic cycling competition. The track was later remixed by Kraftwerk and François Kervorkian for a 1984 re-release; those mixes, along with the original Version Française edit, comprise this 1999 reissue.

INFO > Dutch DJ/producer Ferry Corsten has produced material under countless aliases and with numerous collaborators since the early-1990s. Released as System F, “Out Of The Blue” was a massive international hit in 1999, when the popularity of trance had reached its zenith. Although the UK CD single includes only three tracks, the other available remixes aren’t much cop anyway.

04 Certain Things Are Likely (Garage Dub) 05:08

INFO > “Certain Things Are Likely” is the second single and title track from Kissing The Pink’s third album. Produced by the band, Peter Walsh, and Phil Harding, the album marked a shift toward a more commercial sound; this move came at the behest of KTP’s label, Magnet, which sought greater success from the group. Remixed by Harding, “Certain Things Are Likely” became a dance hit in several countries between 1986 and 1987. As there was no CD release, multiple sources were used to create this unofficial digital single.

NOTE > Special thanks to RA Feutz for the cover scan :-)
