    I do love Justin’s work. I was always pissed that his and Shep’s US commissioned mixes never made popular compilations like Erasure’s singles box sets.

    Incidentally, I met him by accident when he gigged at the Union Sq. Virgin Megastore. He just happened to be out of the booth when I needed help finding an import, and he let it go that he mixed it. Had a great conversation with him about his work. Nice guy.

    D-Oingo Reply:

    Thanks so much for this. Yes, “Let It Be With You” is an excellent song and if memory serves the 12″ single is my favorite of his bunch. 🙂


  4. Ludovic Says:

    Don’t know this one. Voice sounds a little OMD to my ears.

    Did someone mention Bizarre Love Triangle?


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Someone mentioned yesterday that the mix reminded them of Bizarre Love Triangle. I hear a bit what they are talking about. I thought it sounded a bit like Book Of Love Pretty Boys And Pretty Girls.


  6. Love Says:

    Yes! I love you posting these Belouis Some singles.

    Any chance for Target Practice?

    You’re the best! Thanks a lot!

    Dj PaulT,

    Thank you. Thank you very much for this post. I don’t if I ever owned any of Belouis Some’s album but I love the singles and remixes that were released especially this one. I remember owning a various artist cassette with this mix and Natalie Cole’s ‘Pink Cadillac’ C&C mix. there are just memories that sticks with you.. and this mix is one of them. Take care and hopefully you’re having a nice weekend. 🙂


    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome my friend. Sorry for the late reply 🙂


  8. Goodguy Says:

    Thanks so much for this one Paul. I have the 12″ too, but never got around to a rip, and have been playing a bad rip of the extended mix that I got from whoknowswhere. I really appreciate it. 🙂


    DjPaulT Reply:
