DESCRIPTION
 

Were you able to touch them – to render them tangible and actually trace the rhythms in YACHT’s “I Walked Alone” – the lines would form steep hills and sudden cliffs that rise and drop off, again and again, at steep, sharp angles. The wiry funk and itchy bass move like a controlled spasm, convulsive and itchy, until the breakdown, when the nervous tension gets released in a series of cowbell clunks and a guitar solo that leaks out like a slow moving electric current. On this vinyl only collection of remixes, Parisian duo Get A Room!, aka Rove Dogs and Jeff Masson, massage out the herk and jerk, making for a more relaxed and aurally warm take. The sound of things is far housier here – and more pop, in the very best way – owing to synths where there previously were none and angles newly bent and refashioned into smooth, circling cycles of disco-infused sound. And there’s more from Jacques Renault, who contributes a remix both with and without vocals. The New York City dance music stalwart takes his time building to a plateau of perfectly paced beats and a wall of recurring dream(y) house rhythms. Feels like music that fills the room, takes over your senses, and wraps you in its effervescence. - Kali Holloway
