Johnny Headband - Hot Button Topic (Casimer&Casimir remix)

You’ll know that I’m a fan of minimal music, but minimal deconstruction processes are also intriguing. The idea behind the dancey original single was “a simple experiment to see if we could use only one chord and make a really long song.” Then, the tear down began.

Casimer says he chose to focus not on that chord, but the vocal tracks. “By turning off all the original instrumental elements, I sought out to build an arrangement that would help support my impression of those regal, pretty, and uplifting supportive voices. Our reworking of the song is really an attempt at sustaining the feeling of grandeur I experienced on my virgin listen.” 

Get the 7” hot off the Five Three Dial Tone press.
