4.0 out of 5 stars A remix gem Nov. 10 2003
By flux
Format:Audio CD
I consider myself lucky to possess this Japanese import, containing many of the early remixes of "2Wicky" and "Inhaler", arguably among the best tracks from Hooverphonic's debut "A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular".
Liesje Sadonius is vocals throughout, with the exception of Geike Arnaert on "Battersea", which is the album version from the later "Blue Wonder Power Milk". In saying that, one can expect the originally smooth, darker, chilled variations of their unique trip-hop, lounge electronica sound.
The versions here are excerpts from the single releases of "2Wicky" and "Inhaler", which are, unfortunately, quite rare... (I'd like to get my hands on these...)
As far as the edits go, "2Wicky (video edit)" and "Inhaler (radio edit)" are basically that, edits of the original album tracks, rather self explanatory.
I might go so far as to say that the four re-"mixes" are different versions of the album tracks, rather than remixes. Especially as these tracks are not merely rehashing samples from the originals, but are "live" recordings, with fresh nuances and very different ideas in both vocals and sound.
"2Wicky (DJ Pulse remix)" is a smooth, chilled, ambient, drum-and-bass mix, while "2Wicky (Not so extended Hoovering mix)" is a hard (as hard as Hooverphonic gets), Hooverphonic-meets-industrial sound, with distortion, heavy beats and vocal effects.
"Inhaler (drum 'n orch remix)" is my personal favourite and some of Hooverphonic's best. A track seeping with sound and colour, being largely instrumental with the perfect mix of vocal, acoustic and electronic sounds. And last and certainly not least, "Inhaler (Mr Brown remix)" again is a contrast version from the previous remix, with a metallic tone, beefier sound, and bizarre vocal effects.
