Boomkat Product Review:
Life In Sodom’s killer, cult, gothic Miami club hit of 1990 resurfaces, backed with Alessandro Adriani remix and the gloomy ace ‘Phantasmagoria’
It’s a total pleasure to finally tick this one off our wantslist, as the YouTube video has been a go-to anthem for years in these parts. Pretty sure we stumbled across it some years back as a Freestyle Electro oddity via the remix - a unique blend of patently Miami-styled pneumatic drum machines with kink club industrial vox that really pushes our buttons every time.
Unfortunately the label don’t provide any info about the remixer, and the info isn’t coming easily online, but it really is the crucial factor in the success of ‘The Stains’, lending a tight latinate undertow that was arguably missing from much goth rock before it, and ever since, but here works like a wet dream for those who like to properly bump and swoon.
The shorter original mix, first intended for a video, is also included for comparison, along with a slightly unnecessary, duller remix from Alessandro Adriani, and what sounds like a gothic Kraftwerk in ‘Phantasmagoria’, the lead cut from Life In Sodom’s 2nd single.
A must have!
