Boomkat Product Review:
Pole's ace 'Tempus' gets a fresh coat of paint from Sleaford Mods, Rrose, Alessandro Cortini and Pole himself.
The less said about Sleaford Mods' version of 'Stechmück' the better, but at least there's three other tracks on offer here. Rrose's take on 'Stechmück' is the most striking, neatly following on from the psychoacoustic sensuality of 'Please Touch' with a similarly growling, lysergic dancefloor headmelter. Pole's idiosyncratic production is preserved, but Rrose tweaks the glide, driving the rhythm and cunningly pinching the German producer's wheezing synths into a dissociated fog.
Alessandro Cortini tackles the title track, slowing it down and adding some thematic heft - who knew Pole could sound this epic? And Stefan Betke's own version of 'Stechmück' is also worth a closer look; the original track was good, and this VIP offers just a bit more animation where it counts.
