this FUCKING bops


A little remix EP of different remixes of the track Speedway from their first record Schlagenheim. Speedway of course is a great track but the three remixes don't do it for me. The Kwake Bass Remix was fun and groovy but the other two remixed where just boring. Especially the Blanck Mass Remix which just dragged on for way too long. Overall a decent EP

Score - 6/10

Speedway is a funky, more lo-fi track compared to the rest of Schlagenheim. Though at points it may feel bland, can't myself but get jiggy to it. Even in black midi's quieter moments does their musicianship still stand out, which is fantastic to think about. I like this track.
