  • Lime's 1981 hit "Babe, We're Gonna Love Tonight" is one of the induspitable anthems of hi-NRG, and a key track in Canada's rich history of dance music. Now, as part of Montreal label Unidisc's relaunch, its mantle gets taken up by a more contemporary luminary of Canadian electronic music, Jacques Greene, who puts a typically atmospheric spin on the track, with those indelible melodies floating in a new, rarefied air. His remix ditches the quirky vocal interplay of the original and instead tugs on a strand of melancholy and beauty hidden in the original's gleaming synth surfaces. It's a testament to Greene's style that he could make Lime sound like his own music, without losing part of what makes the original so memorable. It's the rare remix-of-a-classic that truly holds its own.
