Boomkat Product Review:
During 1999 Berlin's inimitable Hey records released four ultra-limited sevens by Germany's best kept secret; Hey. Limited to 100 copies each, the four singles (one for each season) found a special place in our hearts as only the finest pop music can. Berlin's excellent De:Bug newspaper have expanded their label away from Cologne techno and have released all four sevens on one LP bringing this music to a wider audience. What a treat! The original A sides are on the A side of the album while the remixes are on the flip. This is music of sheer uplifting joy ranging from analogue steppers reggae through to accordian led Parisian love songs guaranteed to melt even the stoniest of hearts. The most refreshing aspect of their music however is the fact that they are a proper band who write great songs which use electronics in a natural way, that and the fact that you find yourself singing their music all day! Let Hey into your life and be happy forever! Essential.
