Rel date 27 May 2013 EAN 4250382419105 Tracklisting: A1 Reasons To Be Dismal? (Dixon Update) A2 Reasons To Be Dismal? (Extendedsight Version) B1 Reasons To Be Dismal? (Steve Bug Edit) B2 Reasons To Be Dismal? (Motorcitysoul Remix) Poker Flat roar back into action with a remix package for Foremost Poets’ classic club track, ‘Reasons to be Dismal?.’ Originally out in 1998, ‘Reasons to be Dismal?’ gets three slamming new takes courtesy of some of the biggest names in the underground. First up is Dixon, one of the most respected DJs and label owners on the planet. The Berliner serves up another signature slice of pared down, driving house music that maintains the classic vibe of the Poets original. The ExtendedSight version makes a welcome return to vinyl having been available on the original NuGroove release - a classic piece of dubbed out leftfield house, full of unhinged synths and cut up textures and scratches - sure to get the heads racing to the booth for a track ID. Poker Flat head Steve Bug, who worked with Foremost Poets on this highly regarded Noir album, also offers a version, a tribute to the original track with replayed strings, updated drum sounds and a slightly different arrangement that brings in his favorite part a second time resulting in a more mix friendly ending. Last but not least is MotorCitySoul’s remix – who choose to bring out the more Balearic, melodic elements of the track - a perfect sunrise record if ever there was one.
