So, you all know The Streets (aka Mike Skinner) has a new album, The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living, due out for release in the coming weeks; clearly, I’m not in the business of breaking news here.
Anyway, I’m going back to his first LP, Original Pirate Material, for this post. On a recent record-shopping excursion, I plucked a 12″ single for Don’t Mug Yourself that includes the instrumental, acapella and three remixes. Hey, when you’re good, you’re good.
Two of the remixes (the Big$hot and Jammer mixes) are pretty much instrumental reworkings that have more of a dance club feel, thought I sort of like the Jammer mix. The Fusion Remix maintains the lyrical content with a bit of a slower-paced beat.
