The Orgy "Blue Monday Stiches" single features four tracks that take wildly different interpretations of the tracks, creating a tapestry of interesting variety.

The Club 69 Mix is of course commercial house feel, with a distinct desire to re-create the original Blue Monday (by New Order) sound, which is a good solid banging bass and simple drum pattern combined with the synth riffs, and the vocals are present pretty much the entire time. This is a great club track, especially for confusing people on 80's night.

The dj Dan remix takes on the zipper track styled beats and combines them with the synth and bassline format of the original song. This is a pretty generic dj dan remix, nothing too spectacular, good filler material.

Optical takes Orgy's interpretation of Blue Monday and turns it into a dark-step wafting bassline and synth wind sound soundscape. Its perfect drum and bass tempo, as Optical would have it, and it utilises an intereting staggering of the bass drum, different from typical drum and bass flow. Its a dark, malevolent track, with very little dancefloor appeal, but good mood music.

Green Velvet of course does his own thing, and by that, I mean he takes his 909 stylings and works a vocal sample that sounds like "f*ck" over and over, and breaks it down a few times. I'd personally rather have any of his singles rather than this remix, simply because he doesn't really interpret the song all that much, and leaves you wondering what exactly the point was of the track. It doesn't progress, and it doesn't catch you from the start.

Overall, a horribly entertaining collector's item now that f-111 is out of business, but other than the a-side remix by Club 69 which is decent club material, the single is good personal listening material.
