With the release of the Science Fiction Dancehall Classics triple LP dropping today, one of the hidden gems to appear on this compilation is a well kept secret from Neneh Cherry & The Circuit, dating back to 1983.

With a gloriously glitchy beat and minimalistic, repetitive vocals, "Dead Come Alive" is the perfect get-up-and-go weekend-beginning tune to set the wavelength for the weirdly wonderful night ahead.

Swerving in and out of raw electronica sounds and robotic noises, the experimental instrumentals depict the introduction, and experimentation with the drum machine, back in 1983. There's no doubt this track is infectiously crazy, dipping in and out of head-bopping moments to the unpredictable tension of strange goodness.

The softness of the vocals contrast excitingly to the glitchy beat, refreshing the modern electronica scene with some sci-fi from back in the day.

Science Fiction Dancehall Classics is out today, and you can stream "Dead Come Alive" below.
