The rude electro-funk of "Sandwiches" introduced the Pubahs to the wider dance world over a decade ago. What will these remixes achieve? With UK veteran Ben Sims at the controls, the answer is simple - they give "Sandwiches" a new, techno-focused lease of life. The main Sims remix is a rolling, jarring riff-heavy affair and not dissimilar to the sound that he plays in his sets. However there is more to Sims than just pumping techno and the "Acid" remix sees him combine the rude narrative with gurgling 303s, while the "Killa Productions '91 Revival" version opts for a radically different tact. Using the same jarring riffs as the main remix, its slamming break beats bring the listener back to the crazy days of early 90s hardcore.
The mysterious Mr O flies solo on this release for the Detroit Grand Pubahs' label. Veering off in a more techno direction than is the Pubahs' wont, the title track is a storming big room affair - but with a twist. While it has more break downs than Charlie Sheen's career, it's really the evil acid tweaking that has the desired effect. Anyway, Mark Broom's remix will appeal to those who like peak time grooves that sound like they were recorded inside a wind tunnel. Over layers of hissing percussion and stomping beats, the UK veteran lets loose with powerful bursts of white noise.
