In its Original form, Cartoon itself blends tech and disco elements to great effect, with a funk bassline and Joey Negro-ish space disco stabs sitting alongside rolling tech-house beats, while Julien Sandre’s Blind Remix heads deeper and tones the dial marked ‘disco’ down a notch or two. The EP’s other original track is Detention, a deeper, tribal-tinged tech-houser topped with Clangers-like sounds that comes accompanied by an Instrumental (ie, no Clangers noises!) and, in complete contrast to the rest of the EP, a remix from Mashkov that starts out in chill-out territory, then transforms itself into a blissed-out, beats-driven affair.
The title track takes the gold for me.
