Conspiracy 3 – Revolution
Label: SiestaScore: 8.5/10
Siesta’s propensity for eclectic wares has been well documented over the course of the label’s lengthy shelf-life, and I’m glad to report that it’s a tried-and-tested method that continues on their latest effort. Naturally, it’s also a method that’s going to illicit great scrutiny, and while it hasn’t always perhaps come off as they’d have like to in the past, their efforts at least, are noteworthy.
Indeed, ‘noteworthy’ is a word that can also be attributed to Conspiracy 3‘s ‘Revolution‘; a summery track that seems to act as a metaphor for the imprint’s California base. Scavone’s happy-go-lucky are at the spine of all that’s great here, and the original is no different in that regard. It might veer on pop music, but it’s pop music of a sophisticated cut, the sort that’s not right to turn your nose up at. A delectable treat amongst the barrage of hastily produced 4/4 tracks already out there.
Three very different remixes then follow, the first of which arrives thanks to the brilliantly named Sleazy McQueen, who does a fabulous job of placing the vocals against a more sullen and agitated backdrop. DJ Spun Spun’s remix is nothing if not consistent in its ways, but it’s Atnatko who steals the show, with his twisting and turning remix – full of low frequencies and bumping synths – the undisputed winner. It won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but in this reviewer’s eyes, ‘Revolution‘ is nothing if not a most pleasant addition to the Siesta story.
