Pet Shop Boys' Elysium single "Memory of the Future" rode blissfully arpeggiated keys that twinkled and glistened, but on this remix from experimental German DJ Ulrich Schnauss, the British synth-poppers enter a deeper, lower groove that hypnotizes with lush textures and pulsating layers of blips. "We've always liked Ulrich Schnauss's visionary albums and are thrilled that he has created a beautiful mix which sounds both like him and us," Neil Tennant tells Rolling Stone. Pet Shop Boys are releasing "Memory of the Future" as a single with B-sides and remixes on January 1st.
