youANDme – PPPPP

youANDme PPPPP RCRIt’s Saturday night, people! So gonna keep things fairly ‘up’ tonight, starting with this latest offering from Berlin duo youANDme, which also happens to be the very first release on RCR, a brand new vinyl-only offshoot of Paul Loraine’s Rhythm Cult.

Three mixes of PPPPP to choose from. In its original Diva Mix form, it’s best filed under ‘simple but effective’, as chunks of Loleatta’s Love Sensation vocal are placed atop rolling tech-house beats and a nagging, scraping synth riff that’s got something of a Wild Pitch feel. The accompanying instrumental’s less convincing, TBH – the backing track is quite repetitive, and it’s the vocal that really carries it on the original. But never mind cos there’s also the Drunken Diva Mix, which manages not to deviate too far from the original yet still somehow infuse the track with a loping, dubby feel. As in proper (reggae) dub, not just as in there’s no vocal and they’ve toned the synths down a bit…

Do like the Diva Mix but for sheer ‘not sounding like any other remix I’ve heard lately’-ness it has to be the Drunken Diva Mix that takes the gold here.

Out: This week
