Cetu Javu - Situations (Import 12 Inch / 1988)

01) Situations (Extended Mix) 5:30
02) Quien lo Sambia? 7:00
03) Situations (Extended Mix) Brazil Compilation 6:23
04) Situations (Original CD Version) 4:01

1988 Seemed to be the year that a mass of artists began following in Depeche Mode's footsteps...techniques in instrumentation, melody and synthpop sounds...not to mention vocals very similar to Dave Gahan.
This is one artist that fooled many a listener back then. It remains to be an excellent slice of electronic pop and will always be a favorite of mine. All art plus tracks 1 and 2 are from the original ZYX / Technodrome 12 inch release. The inner record label states that 'Situations' is 6:30 in length...it is not!
Track 3 is from a Brazilian Compilation 'Cetu Javu - 12 Inch Collection' circa 2006
Track 4 is from the Remastered CD of 1990's Southern Lands CD.
We Get Together, Nothings Better: Situations


  1. Great tune!! The "12 Inch Collection" version is actually the Razormaid with the ending changing up at around 30 secs left where the Brazil version repeats the drum loop and the Razormaid drops the melody for a DJ friendly outro beat (I just played them side-by-side). Keep posting up the great tunes (and great cover art with them)!

  2. Static, thanks for the comment and info! I was hoping to find out more about the '12 Inch Collection' version, so thanks! I have a ton of original Razormaid! on vinyl and CD from back then. I just couldn't find their remix for this specific track when I was putting this together.

  3. AWESOME Post, RA Feutz !!!
