We have no idea who this Lilly Louisa person is, but she must be pretty out-there to have inspired a track like this. The original mix is a tech-house monster, with a grinding synth riff and near-martial rhythm building to a peak-time climax before subsiding from sheer exhaustion. GusGus attempts to tame the beast on the remix, adding a dash of melody and various swirly effects. In reality, though, the Icelandic production team has only made the creature more dangerous, as if they’d fed a tab of acid to a rampaging rhino.
