The Moscow techno "supergroup" gets remixed.
Centrifuge One aimed to present "a fresh vision of the globally evolving dance floor universe," but the music didn't quite live up to this claim. (The insistent rhythm of the original "Rush" didn't go beyond functional tech house.) For the new version of "Rush," Gorbachev's remix reduces the original to its rhythms, turning them up to an anxiety-inducing speed. The "Obgon Safari Remix" does the opposite. It slows the tempo and disrupts the groove with disorienting syncopations and brooding synth inserts. It eventually sinks into a dark electro, teasing flourishes of metallic industrial beats. Applying a more dance-friendly bass rhythm that rides on a scintillating loop, only the little-known producer Ushi333 makes "Rush" more interesting.
