Code 64 - Deviant
Synthpop, Futurepop In many cases, this new digital only EP from Code 64 is like another day at the office without any surprises, part from a big one, but I'll get to that one later.

The radio edit of 'Deviant' is a perfect dance floor technopop hit that does not stray far from the original, as radio edits should be. As one of the best tracks from the great 'Trialogue' album, it deserves a digital EP like this one and is perfect for DJ's and people that have not yet bought the full album (you should).

And of course there's a disco remix from Parralox as well, show me one track in the world that has not been remixed by Parralox, and I'll show you a dancing fruit basket from Azerbaijan. The remix is exactly what you expect and in this case it's not a bad thing, simply not that thrilling. The same thing goes for the Frequencer Remix of "Oblivion" and the SPARK! Remix of "Deviant" which cleaning the sound up and makes it a bit more monotone.

However, it ends with a big surprise and that is the metal remake by the Greek band Sorrowful Angels. Now this, I love. Who hasn't wanted to hear a Metallica'lized version of a Futurepop track? Sounds impossible? Think again. It's great fun and it's actually really well made. I have no idea how they came up with the idea to remake a track by Code 64, but I'm glad they did and I'm glad it got released. I wish for more crossovers like this, why not make a futurepop track of a metal song? I'll take this kind of approach any day, rather than an album with 9 remixes of the same song.

Worth spending your dime on? If you have not bought the album, yes! Otherwise? Sure, why not? The metal remake is fun enough for it.
