Koehler & Kuno - Anti Gravity Switch

  • Share
  • Berceuse Heroique is a label with an omnivorous diet when it comes to dance music, but its catalogue has a strong British flavour. Loefah's Woman / Midnight is a notable example, but the release of Cousin Cockroach's This Aint Tom 'N' Jerry and "Return To E Remix" by Horsepower Productions had already established label boss Gizmo's fondness for UK dance music. Anti Gravity Switch is a nod to this tradition, via the gunshot grime snares of Koehler and Kuno's original, but it foregoes the velocity of its ancestors. Instead, the track canters through a rhythm carved out of Laurie Anderson-style gasps and an acid line that's as smooth as a crooner's slicked-back hair. It's a fun DJ tool, but its repetitiveness shows its limitations. A Made Up Sound, one of dance music's most reliable remixers, overhauls the beat by lining up some simple Latin jazz keys and tying the track's croaking acid line around a moody synth sequence. It's an unusually understated revamp from Dave Huismans—his other remixes tend to be stuffed with library sounds and sub-rhythms. But the empty spaces of the original are only sparsely furnished here, adding just enough to the mix to make it work.
