Review

Essential revisions of Liquid Liquid classics from Matthew Dear and Sample208 with two contrasting but deadly effective rethinks. Dear steps up to re-make ‘Optimo’, a mammoth task in the hands of a lesser producer, but Dear manages to extrapolate the inherent African influences of the original and emerge with a lush and hypnotic recomposition, layering lilting cowbells and shimmering timbres over druggily looped vox for a rarified disco effect that sounds like a Ron Hardy edit 25 years into the future. Supreme dancefloor gear. Sample208’s edit swings for a chunkier and more direct dancefloor effect with highly successful results, but it’s that magnificent Matthew Dear remix that you really need in your life. Recommended!
