HI MOUNT & C.K – I Know
In keeping with the '90s vibe, this record includes three mixes of "I Know." The "First Mix" shapes the longing vocal into contemplative electro pop. The "Club Mix" cleverly switches the bassline to a dive-bombing, UK-influenced figure. Coupled with a slamming house kick and the original vocal and pianos, this one could be a melancholic speed garage obscurity. The "Deep Dub Mix" is most like the ambience of previous Regelbau releases, but there's a Second Wave Detroit feel to the nuanced percussive shifts, pristine arpeggios and hammering two-note bassline. No matter the version, the music's backbone, a longing wail of "I know" and its cascading echo, transcends style, making for one of the year's memorable tracks.
