Boomkat Product Review:
Domino's reissue programme for Liquid Liquid's seminal punk funk disco tracks wouldn't be complete without some well appointed remixes. Optimo provide a faithfully optimized version of 'Optimo' with subtle reverse edits and crafty dub skills coming into play with Principato's vocals, making for a justifiable revision of an all time classic cut. Goldsworthy's remix of 'Rubbermiro' is done over in typical DFA style, extending the groove and streamlining the bassline for another effective version that should find some life yet on your floor. Matthew 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. Recommended!
