"It's been one hell of a cold winter, but Sender offers a well-deserved respite with a new single that sounds warm, welcoming and wonderfully different. Beaming back this message from some future August are Pelle Buys (Error Error) and A Different Jimi (Egoexpress). They cooked it up in their Hamburg studio, but you'd never know from the sound of it. Built around a horn sample from the former Yugoslavia, 'You Go' conjures the feel of an open-air festival at dawn, sand between your toes, the dawn balmy and a hint of sage in the air. The track opens with a rollicking, rattling drum loop suggesting marching bands at Carnaval, and then the horns enter: distant, nervous bursts, tethered like great bobbing balloons to a time-keeping drum machine. It builds and builds, and then: Boom! It's upon you, with a cannonball kick drum and a swirl of filters. This isn't your average trombone-house track: it comes across like a heat mirage off hot asphalt, morphing and twisting. The mood is just a little bit schizophrenic: offsetting the track's sprightly bounce, an eerie and undulating reed line sketches a darker line. And then once they've drawn you in, Pelle and Jimi switch it up again, dusting off dub-accented chords and dashing down the rabbit hole. 'You Go' takes you far beyond where you expected you'd go. On the remix, France's David K -- known for his work on Freak n' Chic, Supplement Facts and Tsuba -- takes like a carpenter to the original, sanding down its knots and rough edges. All trace of the horns has disappeared, as he buffs dark chords to a dull shine, pulsing atop driving drums. Once again, David K's drum programming stands out, fusing tech-house's full-on chug with the subtlest hint of vintage electro. And his evolving, unpredictable arrangement is a fitting tribute to the twists and turns of the original."
