||1.||"Geek Emotions" (Jacob Korn remix)|
Turning to his more ranging and eclectic alter ego, Daniel 'Red Rack'Em' Berman clearly has plenty to say away from his dancefloor output, and Sonar Kollektiv makes for a logical place in which to house his creations. "Geek Emotions" does admittedly have a house undercurrent to it, but between the cold female vocals and spacious arrangement of classic new wave signifiers this stands strong as a crossover song in its own right. "Freestyle Lover" ups the energy with a more urgent drum break and squalls of guitar, yet still benefiting from the lack of over-production. Jacob Korn's remix hones "Geek Emotions" into a fully-fledged deep burner doused in moody pads and crisp drums.
