Italian producers Margot have long skirted the indie-dance crossover school inhabited by the likes of Border Community and Kill The DJ, and now they bring their distinctive analogue romanticisms to Ivan Smagghe's new venture Les Disques De La Mort. "Waldorf" comes in two forms from the duo, with the "Club Mix" moving at a swift pace with a melodic line that could almost be lifted from a Bonnie Tyler track, albeit encrusted in lo-fi dirt and with strained vocals in a heartbroken stylee. The original version is a swung and slimy cut with rubbery bass arpeggios and a little more space in the mix for the vocals to hook in. It makes perfect sense for Erol Alkan to be on remix duties, and he gets stuck into the track with aplomb, using broad strokes of piano and choice slices of noise from the original to create a big-room ready version.
