Dominik Eulberg's A-side is the meatier offering. Initial percussive glitches are doused in reverb before, with typical Eulberg drama, being shut off immediately. The tightly-wound rattle which drove Berry's original emerges midway (five minutes in), chopped and dragged until it resembles a hairdryer and then sent through spatializers so it veers from ear to ear. After a long and expectant breakdown, the rattle returns as a neat rhythmic chunk. Some nice round bass tones make the latter half more macho, but it's anticlimactic. Nonetheless, the huge central break will work wonders in big rooms.
After his incredible 'Miracle Whop' Gabriel Ananda's version comes as a disappointment, but compared to that most things sound weak. Like the A it's a slow burn - hats brushed, the original vocal tic barely audible beside small, pleasing Akufen-like blips. Some woodblocks show up, so echo-drenched they drip, but rhythmically it treads water until these large encrusted oscillators barge in, signalling a mid-track overhaul. Here it's misleading: aside from some dubbed out squelches and additional clicks and clatter, it keeps on trotting to the finish.
Tracks such as these are demanding increasingly more from DJs, their thin, developing patterns and long durations asking for embellishment, either from direct processing or long multi-track mixes. Both pieces here seem slightly lacklustre, but I'm sure plenty of minimal DJs will make something of them.
