At the heart of Matthew Dear’s electro-pop opus Asa Breed lies “Pom Pom,” a miniature slice of sound and vision
whose rallying cry of “I’ve got to figure out love” is one of the record’s most neck-tingling moments. For “Pom
Pom”’s 10” release, Dear hands the tune over to DFA’s Juan Maclean, who teases out the modest track’s wilder side
in four slick disco-house remixes.
If the protagonist of Dear’s original “Pom Pom” stands shyly in the corner, “The Juan Maclean Mix” shoves him in a
car and sends him hurtling downtown at top speed, chattering sixteenth-note high-hats in his ear as the city lights
whiz by. Maclean drops a gonzo P-Funk guitar solo halfway through his “Instrumental” mix – which, to his credit,
somehow feels entirely appropriate – and adds Dear’s train-whistle coos of “looooove” into the “Backup Vox” mix.
The “Acid Overhaul Dub” mix closes things out on a spacey note, all dirt-caked bass squirts and double-delayed
pianos dotting the skyline.
By the time you get to Dear’s original “Pom Pom” at the record’s end, “I’ve got to figure out love” seems less a
statement of confusion than a sideways smile, an ironic aside by a master of pop-music ambiguity
