03 Obnoxiously Sexual - T-World Mix (Snippet) by Kompakt published on 2014-07-07T14:56:23Z As far as album openers go, OBNOXIOUSLY SEXUAL checks all the right boxes, introducing the listener to the sound pallet and motives of MEXICO (KOMPAKT 301 CD 116), the new full- length offering from iconic Icelanders GUSGUS. But this cut also stands on its own as a deliberately catchy anthem, a perfect playground for a select gang of remixers including PATRICE BÄUMEL, J.PHLIP and GLUTEUS MAXIMUS. Amsterdam floor champion and Trouw regular PATRICE BÄUMEL kicks off the proceedings with a floating techno rendition of OBNOXIOUSLY SEXUAL, embedding the vocals in breezy pads and throbbing sequencing. This proves to be a perfect primer for the proud stepper that is J.PHLIP's remix - both sensual and bold, her approach ingeniously fuses the cheerful bounciness of her native San Francisco's house template with the elegiac elation from GUSGUS. As with the CROSSFADE REMIXE (KOMPAKT DIGITAL 40), closing remix duties fall to the band's very own President Bongo who wraps up the package under his GLUTEUS MAXIMUS guise, sticking surprisingly close to the original, but enhancing the strings and brass parts in the most impressive manner. Bull's eye!
