The originals of both "Yacht" and "$26" found Köhncke in expansive mood, ambling gently from one musical theme to the next rather than driving directly to a conclusion. Both the remixes here are more single-minded than the originals with all the trade-offs that implies.
Aaron Carl goes straight for the attack on his version of "$26," simultaneously pulling out the beatiest and most dramatic aspects of the original and turning it into the best kind of sweaty basement jackfest. He alternates passages of head-down, hips-moving focus on beats and bass with eyes-closed, chest-out strings that tug on the heart as much as the feet. If you can stretch reality enough to imagine a "deep" version of "Rocker" you might be somewhere close to capturing what this track sounds like.
Robert Babicz also toughens up "Yacht," but somewhat less successfully. He adds harder beats and dials up the acid a little but the end result, while pleasantly hypnotic, feels flat and pedestrian compared to the gleeful meanderings of the original. There's a sting in the tail, however, with a lovely little shaker sound that comes in for the last minute or so. Good opportunity for some tech-ed up jocks to do some looping there, I'd say.
