"Blacklist" gets two remixes, by Hamburg's Stimming and Pezzner's fellow Seattleite Lusine, and they both hearken back a decade or so, when curvaceous house was first flirting hard with laptop tweakery. Stimming's mix is like a slightly drowsier variant on My Way-era Akufen, dabbing in snippets of tone tests and horns under a padding, unhurried thump and grinding bass. Lusine works in the same territory, but puts his emphases on a static, booming two-note sample loop, around which the alien twinkles and whooshing woman's phenomes of last year's A Certain Distance eventually coalesce.
Pezzner saves the best for last—and for himself. "Chiuso Per Ferie" chugs like a mother, looping a familiar vocal hiccup—from Off the Wall's "Get on the Floor," it sounds like—and lacing it through a beat that both hurtles and lays back. It jumps out so surely that when, at the 3:26 mark, he kills the beat for a solid minute, it's a chance to take it in. When it returns, joined by a clipped rhythm guitar, it sounds, if anything, even more self-assured.
