Review: Roberto Rodriguez's "Lies", previously released with tweaks from Attu, gets a second airing. The sinewy original - a kind of dubwise deep disco-house concoction - is remixed by Satin Jackets and Kyodai. The latter reaches for the heavy Rhodes chords and skippy US garage-influenced drums on his sunset-themed remake, apparently aiming to soundtrack happy evenings dancing on Mediterranean terraces. Nu-disco don Satin Jackets unsurprisingly emphasizes the original's more disco elements on his warm, baggy remake. It's a typically enjoyable and breezy chunk of deep house/nu-disco fusion.
Review: Serenades label boss Rodriguez gets the remix treatment from Arttu, whose work on Clone has impressed. The first version is based on a buzzing bassline, sliver of cheese-wire percussion and utilises the vocal part to its fullest. The dub take plays down the vocals and puts them deeper in the mix, with Arttu allowing the wispy synths and heavy claps prevail. Finally, the alternative mix has a looser feeling, with live drum patterns supporting the dismissive vocal narrative.
