"Liquido" began life as a jam between Hugo Capablanca and Oklo Gabon with sax player James Ausfahrt and percussionist Satch Hoyt in the mix. It was recorded in a sauna room above erstwhile Berlin club Stattbad, only to be rejected by a label for not being catchy enough. After 10 years languishing on a hard drive, the tune finally receives a proper airing with a remix to boot, and it's a good thing too. Marc Pinol did his remix back when he heard the original tune, and he brings the skronky live feel of the session to the foreground while running a bubbling rhythmic undercurrent underneath to lock in the dancers. The original is a more forthright affair with a punchy monosynth bassline and a distinctly New York no wave bent that should have the more open minded parties of today freaking out aplenty.
