Discogs Review from DjKidCorruption, Jul 07, 2007: A superb re-work/remix of a classic 1980's tune by Miami Sound Machine, feat. Gloria Estefan on vocals, that would get any crowd-into-house-music's hair standing on end. With a punchy original bass line by Mylo (drop the pressure) mixed with smooth, well flowing vocals by Gloria Estefan, the remix has infused 2 totally different genres and musical eras to perfection, thus giving a retro feel to a modern bassy beat. Originally the mix as we know it was done by Phil n' Dog, but later was released under Mylo's record label Breastfed Recordings, with the title being changed to ''Mylo Vs. Miami Sound Machine - Doctor Pressure'' with no mention in the credits of Phil n' Dog being the original re-mixers. The remix version was very popular on the underground club scene and ''word of mouth'' helped it invade the mainstream market with a big presence, so much so that the original version by Phil n' Dog was re-signed and deal done leading to Breastfed Recordings and Mylo owning rights to the remix. As they now held the rights to the remix, they could release and re-brand it, selling to the public in mass and on all formats. It never stopped there.... Breastfed Recordings were on a war path, by using any means possible, they wanted to have every copy of this particular limited edition vinyl destroyed, by contacting records shop to delete all copies, and intervening in internet transactions with legal action if item is bought and so on...very devious on Breastfed Records part. All this was in aid of keeping the original producers of the remix hidden away, and crediting it all to Mylo as his own remix. This is a true classic, addictive vinyl that i'd recommend anyone to, as this one record that has more stories to it then just the writing on the label!!
Mylo comments June 2005, "I first heard 'Doctor Pressure' when I was doing a gig in Brighton a few months ago and Phil and Dog came backstage to give me it on CD. It had been quite a while since I had heard a good bootleg but I thought it was absolute genius from the first listen. I'm obviously biased but for me it's up there with the Richard X's 'Whitney vs. Kraftwerk' one or even possibly the ultra-sought-after Celine Dion "My heart will go on" vs. Sigur Ros! The serendipity started piling up after that - I had signed a deal with Sony BMG so it turned out to be easy to clear. I did my own version of the bootleg, then we found out that Hexstatic had stuck the two videos together, which (astonishingly) both had a theme of randy doctors and nurses. After that it seemed only right to give it a proper release...."
