RELEASE NOTES

There are few who can breathe new life into old Polish songs as well as the Warsaw duo Holiday 80. Their new versions of forgotten Polish songs are always incredibly danceable, featuring great production quality.

This spring the duo will finally release their self-titled EP for The Very Polish Cut-Outs - the cult label from Poland. This recording also marks the start of a new series of samplers, which will fully showcase the production artistry of individual Polish producers.

The Very Holiday 80 Sampler EP features four new edits that are perfect for both the clubs (once they've opened of course) and home. The release opens with "Byles, Jestes, Bedziesz Moj" ("You were, you are, you will be mine") - an electro funk interpretation of Krystyna Pronko's 1987 song which is beefed up with some straight forward drums and lots of new effects. The next track on the same side, the Holiday 80's version of Tubylcy Betonu track "Ye Ye Ye" will prove to you that the Poles felt the Manchester groove no less than the crazies from Happy Mondays. Yet the real gem in this set is the B-side opener "Zaopiekuj sie mna", a synth-wave, dark-italo style take on the 1985 hit track by Rezerwat that was on top of Polish favourite lists of the era.

The release closes with an edit of "Centrum Wynalazkow", one of the best examples of Polish new wave electronic music of the late 1980s. The forgotten recording by Formacja Niezywych Schabuff has been cut with a skill worthy of the tailors of London's Saville Row.
