The Young Punx offers up a radical deconstruction of the WHAM! Hit ‘Club Tropicana’ conceptualised and produced by Grammy Nominated UK multi-instrumentalist and record producer Hal Ritson, who has credits on over 1000 records, including for artists like Katy Perry, Cassius, The Prodigy, Kanye West, Nas, Black Eyed Peas, Duke Dumont, Avicii, David Guetta, Chemical Brothers and many more.
The Wham! classic is spliced, turned upside-down and inside-out and re-imagined in almost unrecognisable form as a pulsing talkbox driven, ItaloDisco anthem, and serves as the next instalment in their promise to release a track a month for the year 2019.
The single was created entirely on vintage ‘80s synths and modular analogue equipment at former Stock, Aiken and Waterman home, The Old Hit Factory studios (now owned by The Young Punx). The track has been approved by the George Michael estate as well as gained praise from co-writer, Andrew Ridgeley.
