The thirteenth release on Light my Fire comes courtesy of Robot Beauty & The Missile, a project founded by the Vienna pair of Florian Kaltstrom and Emil Berliner in the summer of 2012 whilst building a studio together. Since then they released the ‘So Wack’ EP on Be One Records, while also perusing their individual careers on labels such as Bedrock or MBF. Here, on ‘Sometimes’, they present us with two dreamy and emotive originals that are complimented by a further two high-calibre remixes.
‘Sometimes’ leads us through an arrangement of elevating synth motifs, techy percussion and a jumpy bassline, all held together by a vocal sample that most should be familiar with: tasteful deep house for the early hours. Niko Schwind then ups the tempo on his UK bassline-house remix, which aims straight at the dance-floor’s jugular vein. On ‘Flutencia’ Robot Beauty & The Missile then move dub chords and mysterious flute notes effortlessly over a tech house beat, engaging the listener with a sense of urgency. Lastly, Smash TV convince with a remix that focuses on the original’s dub aspects, albeit in a reduced manner. Potent dance-floor stuff, for sure.
