Collide is the best of two words: dancefloor prowess coupled with lyrical grace. Distort, their remix EP, is a way-station between Collide’s excellent debut Beneath the Skin and its anticipated follow-up. Collide, in releasing their music to a half dozen remixers, have opened their own Pandora’s box and let the mutations fall where they may. Luckily, the end result, while wild and varied, was consistently excellent. For example, gabber-geek George Sarah of T.H.C. weaves vocalist kaRIN’s throatwork on “Pandora’s Box” over slipbeats, while Idiot Stare’s Chad Bishop blisters feet with his homicidally danceable reworking of “Violet’s Dance.” In all, a great collection of remixes for a great band.
