If Matthew Dear's Black City is an opus of bacchanalian futurism, then second single "You Put A Smell On Me" is its presumptive climax-an unblinking industrial march to the center of the brains most neglected corners. Its drums are militant, its pace is unswerving, and the squarewave synths that start falling like mortar shells are searing and wide-eyed. Then there's the marbled voice of Dear himself, pent-up and sexually charged, beckoning you for a ride in his "big black car". Its the sound of staring down the part of yourself that you are most afraid of. If that seems too daunting, there's always the dub version. When mirrored through the eyes of othersspecifically Wolf + Lamb prodigy Nicolas Jaar and Ed Banger's resident boogie revivalist, Breakbot-"You Put A Smell On Me" starts to feel less lobotomizing. Jaars version is a sullen, scratchy, headphone-ready beat tripatmospheric vibraphone samples here, stilted kicks and snares there, all of it amorphously affecting together. And Breakbot has no problem hamming it all up into the sort of blithe electro-funk every prom night deserves.
