were you able to touch them – to render them tangible and actually trace the rhythms in yachts 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 theres 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
