Hustler

Simian Mobile Disco - Hustler (Wichita)

Web: http://www.simianmobiledisco.co.uk

“Hustler” was originally out on a cheeky white label a while back, before appearing in prime position on SMD’s debut LP. This catchy, post acid-house shoplifting anthem returns under a hail of remixes. Armand Van Helden gives it the screechy synth’n’b-line treatment, which isn’t a patch on the original and Kevin Saunderson presents a remix that uses a single vocal line to good use, but doesn‘t make much of the rest of the track. Jesse Rose adds a juddering bassline to good effect on his mix, but none of the remixes match the oozing acid driven excitement of the SMD versions.
