This one's quite a weird one, especially for a Poker Flat Recordings-release and I'm still not sure what to make of it after listening to their forthcoming release for dozens of times now although the beats are pumping dark and nicely and Mr. Adultnapper once again manages to hypnotize a willing crowd with his very stripped down style that does not need many musical elements to keep punters excited and to pull 'em into the long dark tunnel that is the night out. So far so sweet but as soon as Mr. Black Light Smoke raises his voice I feel puzzled - seriously. His voice sounds like Prince a.k.a Symbol a.k.a. TAFKAP here. Or at least like a TAFKAP imitator which does not make things better anyway. I don't want that, I don't want a squeezing voice to puzzle me although I see it's working on the floor and I do realize that this tune - somehow - is catchy as fuck, that people won't forget this tune easily. But still - I'd rather prefer an instrumental cut of "Idiot Fair" on the flip instead of the featured remix by H.O.S.H. which, although well-crafted and dancefloor fitting, includes the vocal parts as well. Hmpf.
