Matthew Dear - Fighting Is Futile Remixes


As one of the stand-out tracks from his Beams LP, Matthew Dear's "Fighting Is Futile" falls prey to four very diverse remixes from friends new and old. Seth Troxler kicks off proceedings with a purposefully creepy take that plays off a horror-inducing synth line droning and tripping over a minimal shuffle to devastating effect. KiNK is in a more carnival mood, bringing an effervescent cocktail of drums to the main groove but also feeling confident in pulling the track down into stripped, bassline-and-vocal-only moments of drama. Benoit & Sergio are comfortably locked into a liquid funk with phasing bass and clean chords, while Dear's vocals come out through a distant vocoder. Laid Back finds a slow staccato groove over which to let undulating layers of acidic strangeness waft out, while also cheekily re-voicing the lyrics to a resolutely successful end.
