Paul Kalkbrenner - Keule

Paul Kalkbrenners Tatu-Tata spawned one of the largest-sounding singles of last year. Instantly epic, Gebrunn Gebrunns anamorphic spread between low (insistent, gravity-accumulating bass) and high frequencies (ala wet-towl snaps) was its obvious secret. But insta-epics often spawn what I call the Triple X problem; that is, how do you get larger for the sequel when youre already wearing a size XXXL. Kalkbrenner sidesteps the issue with Keule and creates the superficial inverse of Gebrunn-Gebrunn. The bass wobbles and rearranges knees at loud volumes while Kalkbrenner has fun adding delaying effects to every synth, hi-hat, and finger snap he can find in the mix. This magic-mirror percussion doesnt let this up for either of the B-sides, although Atzepeng is accompanied by a stronger riff for a spine. Thisll do for now, but Im still eagerly waiting for a sequel to Triple X.

Error Error - Remix 1

You can tell that Error Error said two one word answers to each participating artist in this remix 12 when asked what sort of feel to go for. The word for Antonelli was Detroit. He takes Error Errors bouncy, ecstatic take on music make you lose control and stretches it out to its breaking point, employing the originals organ to provide the bed in which the rest of the composition lies. The whole thing sounds like it might find a nice home on a Depth Charge compilation, but its too melancholic and not enough of a risk-taker for my tastes. Paul Kalkbrenners word was Euro. His ebullient version of Your Everlasting Breath is more my speed, increasing the pace and allowing a little bit of the disco into the solemn proceedings. As if nodding back to Antonelli, a mournful organ makes its way into the mix late into the track, only to be subsumed by one of the squelchier basses Ive heard this week.
