The time is ripe for a return to the soulful basics of electronic dance music with songs grounded in the human element. Justin Paul presents The Model’s “Wrong Number” is just that kind of release. Justin Paul and Mark Richardson aka THE MODEL bring listeners back to a time when disco gave way to new wave and ultimately to house music with the Remodel Mix. Markie’s vocals are uniquely his style, but also have a familiar sound of a Michael Hutchence, or Bowie 1980s performance.
The Album Version of “Wrong Number” is an icy cool nod to the best of ‘80’s synth pop. This song is an example of uber cool indie electronic at its best, a trip backwards on an aural time machine. The chilly timbre of The Model’s voice lends the song a mod panache and it would be at home at a New York Fashion Week after party. Justin Paul’s production skills make the “Wrong Number” Remodel Mix feel urgent, upfront, undeniable.
