The type of technoid electro house that Remute made his name on is still there in tracks like "The Clearance Pt. 1," but it's been given a big-room, Chemical Brothers flavour on The Orgy. "Good News" is sun-hazed disco tech, a track that would fit smoothly at a beach party or at home on a balmy afternoon. But even that has his idiosyncratic signature, a brash, mash-up feel brought about by low-quality 8-bit equipment. "Hop" clicks and pops along like a broken Amiga console, with big synth builds where the knobs are tweaked just past feasibility, and "Allnight Allright Forever" is bombastic, a particularly strong example of his hands-in-the-air qualification method.
He manages the translation into a coherent album with some success. There's a balance between calm and frantic, but it's a balance where the weights are far from equal, leading to partial instability. "Everything" and "Nothing" are deep, dark insectoid ambience which contrast with the stompers, but it's ambient or stomper: There's nothing in between. Elsewhere, tracks like "Absolutely" start promisingly then display their gig-grown loopiness too strongly, feeling a few studio hours away from finished album material.
The Orgy has the energy of a live experience, and the variation of a studio album, but the two are mixed in a somewhat incongruous way. Nevertheless, it's all-out fun done with flair and individuality, and there's not much more that most party heads would ask for. Sometimes that's enough.
