"Ralph" finds Remain, the label's other co-founder, trying his hand at a fusion of restrained techno and goth/EBM atmospheres, with a two-note, minor-key bassline, suspenseful vocal chops and glancing, metallic FM synths. It's not entirely successful; the clangs and squawks give it a slightly awkward, almost logey feel—stumbling where it wants to stomp, stomping where it should barrel forward. The slower "Digression" actually has more energy, stringing itself out along a low-end throb suggestive of plucked electric bass, with a bashy disco rhythm and lavishly filtered synthesizers. With echoes of LCD Soundsystem, Simian Mobile Disco and White Light Circus, it's a satisfyingly monotonic throb.
Ewan Pearson's remix of "Ralph" begins with some spooky reverb squeals and a more limber drum beat; dubby chords and plangent synths give the track more room to breathe, but it's still slightly hamstrung by that toggling, minor-key progression. Pan/Tone's remix of "Digression," bearing scant resemblance to its source, is a driving, uptempo number that tries, in Cobblestone Jazz fashion, to combine peaktime energy with a sense of psychedelic drift, and it succeeds, with a splotchy, casually frenetic way of daubing on chords reminiscent of Thomas Brinkmann.
Finally, Krikor and Chloe team up as Plein Soleil; their remix of "Digression" stays true to the original's tempo and blippy palette, but they draw out an unexpectedly playful thread, emphasizing country-ish twang and a bouncing, gliding lead of their own design—goth at its most good-natured.
