Make Fire-The Remixes
Reviewed by Kent Manthie
Kohib, a Scandinavian dance combo has just released Make Fire -The Remixes. It’s a CD featuring 9 songs of “Nu-Disco” on it, each track re-mixed by a different outfit, e.g. “Push Me Down” has four versions, remixed by four entities: track one, remixed by Stoyvind; track four and five are remixed by Boska (#4 is the “Boska 2010 Askefast Remix”, while track #5 is the “Boska 2011 Remix”) and #7 is the “Kohib Diskodans With Mika Remix”. Other guest remixers on Make Fire… include Syntax Erik, Frisvold & Lindbaek, Dennis Jr. and Lepetitgarcon.
Another interesting track is “The Fang Song” which has two different versions: on track three it is done as the “Kohib Dub Remix” and track eight is the “Dennis Jr. Remix”. A song that appears only once on Make Fire… is “Tales From a Nomad”, a kind of psychedelic disco-club mix, it is rather entrancing and enthralling.
The other two lone remixes are: track #2, “My Command” (Syntax Erik Remix) and track number nine, “Hear This” (The Lepetitgarcon Is Preparing For Parenthood Remix), a catchy remix title, if I say so myself. The latter song, (“Hear This”) is a quiet, chill-out remix, it sounds like an echo chamber in there and is a lysergic un-dance number that one would expect to find after a long evening with loud, breathtaking, ear-splitting dance numbers. This one is sure to bring one back to earth in a slow, easy way.
