Q-Burns Abstract Message has made quite name for himself as a remixer, and FUTURE PAST TENSE collects these tracks in one helpful package. Tetris gets the formerly mellow "Two Hours" turned into a mellow house tune, and Beef Wellington gets the funk of his "Dedication" placed in a more emotive context. Rabbit-in-the-Moon has "Floori.d.a" turned into a mid-tempo house twitch, while Iffy's "Can-O-Cope" comes out rather blandly. And Fila Brazillia's "We Build Arks" is rolling and upbeat, if somewhat lackluster. Well, not everything can be a winner. But Lovesky manages to get one with the melodic and bouncy mix of "Come Back to Me,' and Neon Heights also scores with a more spare, dubby take on "Hometown Blue." He slows things down for a spacy mix of Jugoe's "Night Fumblings," but gives "Rhythm of Life" an a garage house twist and ends the album on the straight-up deep house of Rivera Rotation's "On the Beach." A mixed bag, as it were, but definitely enjoyable.
