Mouth to Mouth (Heartthrob's Hot Breath Treatment)
Label: Spectral Sound
Is a single dance track good enough for a five-song EP? Well, if it's Audion's "Mouth to Mouth," the answer is a resounding YES. This minimal anthem boasts grooves so chiseled, so barbed, it will leave you feeling burned and cut to pieces. Not even Heartthrob, whose two remixes take the jam into outer space, can dull its impact -- the same goes for Konrad Black and Ryan Elliott, both of whom filter the original through sheets of static and goodtime party chirps. Even Audion himself (aka Matthew Dear) shows up to remix his own track, and it smokes, of course.
