Caribou - Your Love Will Set You Free (C2's Set U Free RMX)

  • Share
  • Caribou's "Your Love Will Set You Free" was a fitting last word for an album that used house and techno to illustrate quiet musings on heartbreak and devotion. It's a dance track that refuses to drop, holding back the full weight of its sanguine bassline and clubby thump, just as Caribou underplays his sadness when he sings, "I can't tell you how hard it has been since I left you." The song is also an ideal candidate for a beefed-up remix, and Carl Craig doesn't disappoint with his floor-ready version of "Your Love Will Set You Free." But his production, filed under the C2 alias, fails to bring the original into any unfamiliar territory: it's content to simply give heft to an already strong song. It's not until Craig's big, brassy groove is over halfway through that he changes up the structure and sound pallette, introducing a woozy breakdown of anxious strings and discordant organs ahead of the triumphant finale. There is a payoff, but everything beforehand is a little underwhelming for an artist with some truly remarkable remixes to his name.
