It's easy to understand, when listening to "Motorik Life," why the eponymous term was invented to describe the forward-feeling 4/4 rhythm. There's a concision and seriousness to the groove that only serves to add to its insistence. The beat has a destination in mind, with delicate, disparate elements coming in and out of focus throughout. It's a solid, reliable piece of work.
The two DJ Sprinkles offerings pick up the pace even more. The dub, however, doesn't really feel that much different, save for the obvious addition of percussion and handclaps, as well as the vocal samples which are subtly understated. The flip, on the other hand, goes that little bit further. The spine of the original is still audible, as in the dub, but it's cloaked in effects that range from cosmic keyboard flourishes to the voice Martin Luther King repeating the version title. It's an intense, dramatic experience that resonates all the more due to its limited vocabulary.
