DESCRIPTION
 

The second of two Zentrum spinoffs is with us! As with the first, it comes loaded with four remixes. Octo Octa, Vito & Druzzi, Cooper Saver and Turbotito, and Lemonade all handed in top-notch reimaginings of tracks off Jacques Renault's debut LP, which came out just under a year ago, and they all somehow manage to be unique unto themselves while also sublimely bleeding into one another.
Octo Octa's rendering of “Mi Casa Samba” serves as a propulsive beginning that's as dark and druggy as it is sharp and focused. Vito & Druzzi's take on “Faith” runs in a similar vein, but in a more stripped-back, drawn-out, and patient sort of way; it is nearly ten minutes long, so this is perhaps not a surprise.
The B's remixes are brighter, sunnier, though that's not to say they're not bold. Cooper Saver and Turbotito's redo of “Words” has a certain funky swing to it that, paired with spacey synths and Balearic bells and whistles, makes it ideal daytime disco fodder. The Lemonade boys close the EP with their vibey take on “Faith.” Pads for days, a plump bass, and a focus on the original's sax make you wonder if the song itself somehow got stoned from a couple extra giant bong rips. A fitting way to end both the 12” and the summer.
