It’s easy to get excited about this. Primarily because the vocal is so resistant to the cliqued charms of soulfulness. So much so that Wild Child tells its own story as abundant, fiery attitude explodes with devilish charm across tough, infectious synthesized motifs and fevered drum machines. And the craziness only gets really crazy the further you get into it. I get the impression Alan Vega would have approved. The contrasting and first-rate remix comes from a low-slung Daniel Zuur who drives the kick drums and sounds in telling fashion, plus there is also an instrumental version of the original should the voices scare too much.
