Back on a tech-house tip here, with a cut from Italian producer Lorenzo Panico that comes in four very different mixes.
The Memz Vocal Version is a game of two halves (Brian). The first half features a spoken vocal from cockney geezer Memz, who ponders the nature of deja vu, and particularly how it relates to the ecstasy experience, atop dramatic theatrical organs and pretty much nothing else… then, after a couple of minutes, techy, clicky percussion, handclaps and a twiddling analogue synth come along to play us out for the remaining three. It's something of an oddity, truth be told, but not without its charms for sure.
The Piano Groove is more yer standard techy jacker, with looping female vocal snips and of course the eponymous joanna, though the latter is buried quite deep in the mix. The Instrumental starts out all deep n' sultry, then gets in-your-face with some insistent looping, squelching synths… and then finally, the Dub is essentially a nine-minute beats tool but with all kinds of experimental squiggles n' such going on over the top.
All told, I'm not gonna lie and say I'm totally in love with this one – I mean it's fine, I'm just not in love with it, if you see what I mean. But if you like things a little more out-there and experimental, then you just might be.
