Listen To Pete Hammond's PWL-esque Mix Of Velvet's 'Chemistry'

Swedish broad Velvet is getting the full-on Pete Hammond/PWL (now PWE) treatment for the April U.K. release of her single "Chemistry."

We all recall how Alphabeat's "Boyfriend" got a similar mix, and it shot poptastic tingles down our pants for about the first 56 listens until we were so sick of it we never wanted to hear it again ever and it didn't even make the Chart Rigger Best of 2008 list except in a "special" category? (Repeat that sentence five times fast and win a gold star!)

Well, here's the "Pete Hammond Radio Edit" of Velvet's (real name: Jenny Marielle Petersson) "Chemistry." Let the similar naughty jolt ensue! (*Note: The video's trash, but the mix takes an interesting turn at 2:11 in.)

    Wow. That's nuts! It's everything that was amazing about 80s sugar pop. Where can we find this to buy?

    I'm such a fanboy for Pete Hammond's latest mixes, I hope he never stops making them.

    The turn at 2:11 sounds so Pete Hammond-meets-Stuart Price.

    And to give it the benefit of the doubt, I agree the video's a piece of trash; but doesn't it have its tribute value, by emulating the benchmark of what PWL's video visuals and art direction used to be like back in their days?

    Come on! This one could have been a typical Sinitta mega production!

    Well fuck me gently with a chainsaw, this is even better than the original "Chemistry", don't you reckon??

    Is that even a legit mix? She wasn't even shown in the video for two seconds. If that IS the way they planned it, she better start putting in those applications at her nearest Penthouse Club.
