Smash TV hit us in the face with their ‘Matthew Pervert EP‘ way back in April, and we loved it. The blend of sassy vocal lines, deep chords and steady groove made this EP a total bomb. So, naturally, it’s time for remixes! Coyu and Tiefschwarz take the honours.
The Tiefschwarz remix of ‘Matthew Pervert’ open with shuffling percussion and stuttered vocals. The bass line slowly creeps in, and brilliantly engineered synth work stabs in the dark. In short, high expectations are met, and exceeded!
Coyu makes his first Get Physical appearance on this EP, and with good reason. He keeps it dark and heavy, favouring silenced strings and stripped percussion to raise the tension. Layers of Delay and reverb take the vocal line to the next level; and then he drops the bassline. Pure groove from here on out.
Last but not least is the Smash TV ‘Strip Dub‘, taking it down to the bare essentials for mixing purposes. Percussion, some light synth and vocals, that’s it. Now you can throw it over any mix, and give your set that Smash TV heat the boys are known for.
