All turbo charged and glistening with an aggressive retro sheen, juggernaut independent label Numbers have once again delivered the goods with their latest offering; Spreo Superbus from the now named Kodiak (I heard stories they were going to apply the moniker Milk at one point).
Retuning the engine to the big rig and possibly having a word with Jay Kay from Jamiroquai along the way, Fact described it as “[a] track that sounds like driving a Ferrari straight into the middle of a packed dance floor”, and you know what, that’s bang on!
Before hearing the original mix, I heard the Actress remix. A very different direction. It’s got the future laser blasts whilst also making you think you’re back in 1983, having a chin wag with Tony Montana early morning in the Miami harbour when he’s in one of his more sombre moods. There’s a healthy slice of grit thrown in mid way (shit, Tony’s flipping out on me), but it mellows down again nicely to round off.
It’s nice to see a bit of attention’s been given to the video angle too. Someone’s obviously remembered about that flight sim game you could get in Microsoft Excel back in the 90s, filmed themselves playing it a slapped some nice colours on the top. I think it works.
