The A-side seems wrought from the same materials as the Livity single: a drum machine skeleton, spartan synth strings and tape distortion so thickly applied you can almost taste it. In fact, with its serrated hi-hats, semi-tonal melodic hook and bravely simplistic construction, it feels a lot like a sister piece to "More Games." No bad thing—the freshness of this sound is far from exhausted—but nothing to write home about either.
The B-side, aptly titled "Dub Bisous," is where things get interesting. The same track is dubbed through a mixing desk in the time-honored tradition, hands on faders scooping elements out to reveal dizzying swathes of negative space. As a result, the grime-inspired relentlessness of the original gives way to fevered psychedelia: at several points churning delays threaten to consume the mix, overloading circuits, flooding the dance with an all-consuming dread. And when that baleful, thunderous bass drops in over smears of tape-saturated echo, the intensity of the original is magnified several-fold, to stunning effect.
