Both versions of "Baktadust" show as much. The original mix, with its pulverizing kicks and a warbly piano sample, sounds like it could have ended up on L.I.E.S. The percussion offers something dynamic to latch onto: slippery hi-hat programming and snares that volley across the measures like an old Ben Klock track. The "Fried Mix" keeps the piano and snares but not much else, transplanting them into a slower, floatier groove that's packed to the brim with hand drums.
On the B-side, "Push Me" is stripped down, just some flanged hi-hats and satisfyingly chunky drums. A few high-pitched sounds and the hint of a piano are the only meat on the bones. "Spasm" closes things out with a left turn: the expanding and contracting basslines and steam-powered hi-hats are both heavier than anything else on Baktadust. Powering through the track's final two minutes, a big emotional lead ties a bow on an EP whose straight-up tools still pack a surprise.
