Digital Boy - Ok!Alright/Kokko Remixes (1991)

The originals were okay (alright, even), but pretty simple and repetitive rave fodder. These remixes added real depth and turned them into rave masterpieces. The weakest link is DJ Herbie's mix of Kokko – a bit too high on the cheese factor; but his happy piano mix of OK!Alright is almost equal to Luca's more serious acid house mix (the pick of the release?).

Even so, it was Luca's own remix of Kokko that was cained the most – high energy rave with chanting, acid and “dance, you've got the chance” vocal. Tune. And I like the sleeve cover art too - very simple, lots of white space, smart font work.
