After the warning, now it’s time to listen. Title track and remix: two sides of the same coin. On one side, Krystal Klear , drawing an eighties boogie-funk-flavoured piece on keyboard, including synthetic handclaps and all. On the other, “rhythm burner” Hudson Mohawke. Give the Glaswegian any melody and he’ll give it back corrupted and broken. True? Well, not entirely. “Butter” (Warp, 2009) made it pretty clear that somewhere in HudMo’s core beats a heart devoted to tradition, and has a love for (black music) syrup. That’s the side he shows on his rework of “Tried For Your Love”. Additives (piano and sax with an old school house flavour) and flavour enhancers (a more lively rhythm) with the warranty seal of the Mohawke factory.
