- Dream Baby Dream (Four Tet Remix) / Cashback (Lindstrom & Prins Thomas Remix) by Neneh Cherry & The Thing
In one of the more satisfying and unlikely collaborations we’ve seen lately, Neneh Cherry teamed up with Mats Gustafsson’s Norwegian jazzers The Thing for a playful and inventive collaborative LP where they offered up some skewed reworks of artists as diverse as Suicide, The Stooges, MF Doom, Martina Topley Bird and Ornette Coleman!
Now we’ve got this 12” where yet more giant names are added to the already intimidating personnel involved. On the first side Kieran “Four Tet” Hebden knocks out a crispy take on their version of Suicide’s ‘Dream Baby Dream’, with clicky little beats and warm washes of brass over Cherry’s sultry feel-good delivery, completely transformed from the dark, dirgey instrumental into a bright feel-good house cut, although Mats does throw in some wild sax skronk to keep us from getting too comfortable.
Flip it and Lindstrom & Prins Thomas get busy with Cherry original ‘Cashback’, although her vocals are all but removed as they turn it into a pumping cosmic disco cut with a bit of an old school east coast techno vibe and some bright, cheeky synth stabs and funky synth-bass loops. Total feel-good dancefloor filler material...until the skronky sax comes in to scare everyone off. Actually the sax solo on this is particularly sweet, with Gustafsson almost taking almost a rock guitar approach to his honking brassy blasts.
