Review: GusGus – Thin Ice

Artist: GusGus
Title: Thin Ice remixes
Label: Kompakt
Genre: Minimal/Tech House
Format: Digital (Juno Exclusive)
Buy From: Juno Download

Esteemed techno troupe GusGus return with their second Kompakt digital release for 2009. Lifted from their album 24/7, “Thin Ice” is a worthy follow up to their popular “Add This Song” release.

The slow-building pressure of the video edit sits alongside four new remixes, each exploring melodic, deep and vocal techno sounds.  Analog People In A Digital World keep it hypnotic and driving, Wareika adds some lounge funk and Aussie ex-pat Ben Frost delivers a focused but soulful minimal odyssey.

Remute’s mix, exclusive to Juno, packs the biggest punch with a housey break and big room drums.  Expect deep moods and powerful vocals.
