First up Ena Cosovic, co-founder of Copenhagen based True Rotary Recordings, Culture Box resident and dub techno specialist, has injected "Make Me Sin" with irresistible drive and punch. Dynamic stabs and compelling percussion support the aquatic swells, churning melodies and details from the original.
Russia's Panorama Channel (Biologic Records) turn their hand to the track next, creating an electric, Italo touched builder, heightening the intensity with gritty synths, a biting snare and growling bass as the delicately eery piano riffs re-enter the fray.
Darker still, the Belgian and the Swede bring us their addictive "Catnip" version of "For the Forgetful". Inspired by long mornings on the Berlin dance floor, the pair have created a groovy, hypnotic workout that revolves around a subby bass line and raw cuts of Eluize's vocals to prop up the sleepless and induce movement during those daylight creeping, end-of-night denying moments.
Eluize adds her piece to the pack, unveiling a secret track made especially for the cassette release. "Never Think Before You Begin" is an ambient affair, slowed down and intimate, built from twisted vocal elements and layered piano punctuated with grainy percussive hits. The label founder also reworked "Make Me Sin" into a dub of sorts, stripping out the vocals to make space for the beautifully performed keys, uplifting arps and rippling leads to take centre stage.
