City Calm Down – Sense Of Self (Ta-ku Remix)
Last month I posted City Calm Down’s latest single, Pleasure and Consequence, loving how different their new sound is. Now Ta-ku has tackled one of their older tracks, and it couldn’t be more different than the original! I loved Sense Of Self when it was good, honest disco synth-pop; but I’m a slave to experimentalism and so Ta-ku’s take on it makes me a bit giddy. It’s great when a remix is so far away from the original it’s barely recognisable – but still brilliant. Sense Of Self, is now full of glitchy madness, fragmented synths, tempo changes, dramatic rises and in contrast to all the fizzing, it’s surprisingly smooth.
