Boytalk's "Der Bestrafungstanz" is a case in point, letting giggly melodies drift through a slow motion house frame. Filburt's remix grounds the track with more recognisable piano licks and an urgent kick drum that is more immediately dance floor, but their mutual power is that played back-to-back the two feel like the black and white of the same scene of innocent madness.
In Klinke Auf Cinch's "Nieselregen," the humour is played out in the percussion, where the seriousness of the bass groove is lightened by the restless rim shots and the smiling xylophone patterns. Monkey Maffia's remix works the same way as Filburt's inversion on the first side: the bass gets an upgrade and the mischievous drums are filled out, yet all the while there's a disorienting dream seeping through the in-between spaces.
