Funk D’Void & Phil Kieran - White Lice

The original version of “White Lice” is the type of brittle, tech-heavy minimal house that sends all the girls running away, stimulating only the most nerdy techno fans who have a circuit board dependency. Yes, I am being a bit facetious, but tracks like “White Lice” are a dime-a-dozen at the moment, even if the duo has an amusing compulsion for muted laser shots that nearly bring the track to a halt halfway through. Frenchman Lee Van Dowski (Mental Groove, Cadenza) weighs in with a better straight techno remix that wets the circuits just enough for you to get a sensation when you take a bite out of it.
