A2: Drum Vortex (Joey Anderson Remix)
B1: Drum Vortex (Markus Suckut Remix)
It is what it is. A bounding, loping percussive bouncer in its original form with some dubby accoutrements and crepuscular keys discordantly piped in. Markus Suckut takes things down a tadge, but not enough so that the track loses its sense of self. It’s left to Joey Anderson to do that with a version which feels reductive but contains multitudes. ‘Basma’ takes its cues from the original, but feels like its shadow, albeit one emphasizing different facets. A finely-textured and subtle release.
