|More Games (MM/KM More Names Remix)
|Too Much Time Has Passed (Dresvn Remix)
- Artwork –
Issued in a plain black paper sleeve.
- Sued brilliance in full effect on the B, Kassem stomping around on the A.
- Is this record well balanced, or not balanced? Each side is definitely different, which also seems to be caused by the difference in the two original tracks by Kowton / Asusu. Each of the remix artists amplifies the original feel in its respective direction. More Games by Kowton is already a quite deconstructed barebones house track, and this fits well with MM/KM´s approach who deconstruct it further while adding their own signature. Too Much Time Has Passed by Asusu is a deep and swinging house track, with a warm bass and crackling ambience, and Dresvn builds on this atmosphere, cheering it up a bit by introducing higher-pitched sounds, but keeping it mellow.
- Edited 9 years agoCan't say I agree with Sunshine-Recorder, this is a pretty average 12" at best. I buy everything from KM and MM sight unseen, and their remix here is pretty good. Sounds just like their other stuff: stomping house sounds with a slight industrial edge. Good stuff, but definitely not their best. In fact, it's probably their weakest remix yet, but it's still better than most as Kassem is at the top of the techno/house game. Too short a remix, in my opinion, clocking in at just over five minutes.
The Dresvn remix is a real snoozer. Not quite seven minutes of loop action with an organ tom and a few synth washes here and there, and that's about it. Won't be listening to that one ever again.
Mix together the fact it comes shoddily pressed in a plain inner sleeve (not even an outer sleeve? really?), and you've ultimately got a 12" you can skip altogether.
- The best remix 12" on Livity Sound yet. Great stomping bit from MM/KM though my favourite is definitely the Dresvn remix - so nuanced and soft.. a remix in the truest sense, sounds completely different to Asusu's original. TIP!
