French boutique imprint Kitsune have yet again excelled with the standard of remixers on this latest from French fidget/electro smashers Beataucue. While their original is a gloriously psyched-out mix of pitched-up samples and vocals all woven together with some canny filtering, Dom Rimini adds a techno rush to the beats while Buraka Som Sistema main man J Wow strips things down for subtle and infectious booty quake mix. High Rankin also delivers with a seriously abrasive rubdown with plenty of nasty swing to the drums, while Germany's Piemont take the original on a crafty minimal excursion. Great stuff all round.
Belgian duo Renaud Deru and Andy Faisca describe the Mustang sound as "psyche pop disco". It's a fairly spot-on description for the new wave/nu-disco grooves showcased on this debut single. "Apocalypso" itself is a high-energy hotch-potch of 80s Eurodisco stomp, cheap sounding synth pomp and prog-rock influenced cosmic oddness. It has its tongue firmly pressed into cheek, and is all the better for it - we mean, how else would they have been able to get away with audacious guitar solos and Casio keyboard strings!? The marvelously named "Dick Reverse" cuts down the campery in favour of a midtempo psychedelic disco groove with subtle pop overtones.
