In the mid-2000s, a small British label called Planet
Clique, specializing in dance music, released a series of remix EPs of classic
B-52's hits, mostly on vinyl. The label was an offshoot of Manhattan
Clique, maintained by founders Philip Larsen and Chris Smith, collectively
referred to by the moniker "MHC".
From their website:
of the most enduring and well-respected remix teams of the last decade,
Manhattan Clique have worked with some of the biggest names in pop and dance
music, delivering over 200 dance/crossover remixes to date for all the world's
major labels and many independents. Highlights include Katy Perry, Charli
XCX, Emeli Sandé, Lady Gaga, DJ Fresh, Ellie Goulding, Nicole Scherzinger,
Britney Spears, Carly Rae Jepsen, Example, Wretch 32 and many more.
Manhattan Clique remixes regularly reside in the upper reaches of dance, club and pop charts in the UK, US and across Europe. Their remix edits are also hugely popular with radio stations, gaining support on BBC Radio 1, Kiss and Capital in the UK, and across a large number of radio stations in the US. The team are also well known in the blogging world, picking up regular plaudits from leading music bloggers such as Popjustice, Perez Hilton and Arjan Writes.
Manhattan Clique have also worked with some of the biggest artists in Europe; from Germany's Frida Gold, Norway's Ida Maria, Holland's Esmée Denters, Russia's Valeriya to French megastar Mylene Farmer. Her duet with Moby, "Slipping Away" was Manhattan Clique's first #1 production, as well as Moby's first and only #1 single, spending several weeks at the top of the French singles chart in 2006.
Outside Manhattan Clique, Philip Larsen has additionally won a Grammy award for his mix work on Kylie Minogue’s "Come Into My World". Chris Smith runs the PR and marketing company Renegade Music, based in London, who consult for a wide variety of new and established UK and international talent.

I cannot tell you how much fun it has been, sharing my stories and music with you all over the past 365 days. I initially assumed that no one would take the time to find or read my words, or have any interest in this little corner of the Web that I designated my own... Some folks just passed through; some have lingered a while; and many have left comments with me, sharing their own thoughts about the things and events I've written about. To all of you, I just want to say "Thank you".
...This thing turned out to be a lot more fun that I ever thought it would be.
Even after a full decade of maintaining this site and providing my thoughts (and, more importantly, the files) on the music and bands that I have loved, hated, enjoyed and maligned throughout my life, I don't think I can add much more to this writeup. As the number of visitors now approaches a million, all I can say is that I am grateful and humbled for your interest and support over the years, and the kind and thoughtful words many of you have left. In my wildest dreams, I never thought that Pee-Pee Soaked Heckhole would resonate with so many for so long.
