Cold Cave "Life Magazine (An Optimo (Espacio) Mix)"
Philadelphia coldwave patrons Cold Cave released Love Comes Close last year, but they're just now getting around to releasing a proper 12" single for "Life Magazine." The track is treated to remixes from the likes of Pantha du Prince, Arthur Baker, and, here, Optimo. Fresh off the finale of their long-running weekly Sunday-night party, the Glaswegian duo's intent is clear from the onset; JD Twitch and JG Wilkes are gonna make you move. Their mission is accomplished with much aplomb through hijacking the vocal from its original synth-pop resting place, and placing it in the middle of an energetic space-disco workout. Optimo also has an entry in the venerated Fabric mix series the comes out next week, and the "Life Magazine" 12" drops on June 8.
