INFO > 1993’s “Lemon” was given a twist by David Morales and the Perfecto team of Paul Oakenfold & Steve Osborne. In my opinion, these brilliant remixes represent the respective pinnacles for both producers: Morales’ dark and moody deep house is contrasted by Oakey’s full-on day-glo trance. As is the case with many releases from the 1990s, “Lemon” is a challenging single for collectors. UK and US 12″ promos each contain different mixes; the commercial US vinyl consolidates many, but not all of the versions. CD singles were only commercially issued in Australia and Japan, and the US promo includes an exclusive remix by sound engineer Robbie Adams. Consolidated here are unique mixes from the US and Australian CDs, along with the ‘Bad Yard Club Edit’ and ‘Perfecto Mix’ included on follow-up single, “Stay.”

INFO > Produced by Nick Hanson and Moose, this “New Year’s Day” sampling house stomper received official approval by Dublin’s most famous sons. It’s not the first time that guitar riff has been ‘borrowed’ since the single’s original release in 1983 (Island UK, WIP 6848); plenty of covers, remixes, and mash-ups have appeared over the past three decades.
