The track is powered by a lazy, feel-good acoustic guitar stomp, a kind of trip-hop soft-rock, Seals & Croft with VST plug-ins. While its airy summer-breeze narcosis makes it a seemingly prime grill-party jam, its sluggish groove and tailor-cut instrumentation makes it feel less like it wafted down from out of the summery haze and more like it was cooked up for a light beer commercial. It's that element of over-calculation, evident here as on the rest of the Low Motion full-length, that begins to tip the scales that so precariously balance kitschy vinyl-lover grooves on the one hand and Best of Chill-Out Volume 8 compilations on the other.
The An-2 remix doesn't manage to keep the scale in place. With its calculated laser-boogie and uninspired arrangements, it seems quite happy to erase the original's shred of good taste in order to grant "Low Murderer" preferred status in Purgatory's infinite tacky chill-out room. It's pretty routine space disco, and it says something about the current renewed interest in the likes of Moroder and Cerrone that we've reached the paint-by-numbers approach. Mark E's remix fares far better here, adhering to his characteristic steady pressure-cooker approach, but the slightly damp quality of the original prevents him from building his usual full head of slow-disco steam. While Mark gets all his rubber-band loops spinning in a whirlwind—the acoustic guitars whipped up into a kind of dubby, churning siren song—his remix, like the original, never feels like much more than the sum of its parts.
