Following Daphni's exhilarating treatment of "Runnin," the dusty squawk-box psychedelia of Sinkane is again prepared for dance floor omnipresence with a new pair of remixes from Germany's Tuff City Kids and Barker & Baumecker. Running Back label boss Gerd Janson teams with Philip Lauer as Tuff City Kids to create an anxious burble out of "Making Time," squeezing dry Ahmed Gallab's processed guitar histrionics and letting staccato bass get tangled in a maze of refracted synths. For "Warm Spell," Ostgut Ton pillars Barker & Baumecker turn abrupt twitches into a big-room tool, teasing out soft chords over crusty percussion, with Sinkane's weary vocal chasing after itself until exhausted. Both remixes further reveal Sinkane's emotional range, as comfortable on a sweaty dance floor as a sunny beach.
