"Estupendo, a catchy little number with hints of '80s synthpop, including a chorus that's equally catchy as breezy and a stupendously addictive hook (see what we did there?) that sounds like a pastel tinted rival to MGMT's 'Electric Feel.' Next to the album version there's three different mixes on offer: young Belgian producer Compuphonic stretches the original into a dubby, synth heavy electro-house trip that criss-crosses between glitzy melancholy and restraint euphoria. Brazilian button pusher Gui Boratto, of Kompakt fame, keeps most of the vocals (courtesy of Scott Mason from Chicago indie-popsters Office) intact and performs his trademark minimalistic, feverish bleeps for a bouncy yet easygoing makeover. Kid Gloves (or the joined forces of Freelance Hellraiser's Roy Kerr and Anu Pillai of Freeform Five) recently chopped up tunes for Ladyhawke, Santigold and Riosin Murphy -- here they add some Afrobeat flavour to a deep house mix before letting it drift off into frantic territory for a Nathan Fake-ish finale. Pretty intense stuff!"
