REVIEWS | Conversations

 With two mixes of definite contrast, The Hole Punch Generation‘s Conversations can seem somewhat confused.

 Commencing with a very pretty direction, the beat tends to overtake things somewhat. It’s faster than a 
 rollercoaster; taking a very individual path of its own choosing, and not only that, it can be destructive. There’s 
 an unusual smooth vocal that’s explicit in its hint to a female side, but disappointingly, the drums tend to sit 
 independently in the background rather than appearing moulded around that wonderful atmosphere created by
 the gentle vocals and a nice flow of melody.

 The remix is perhaps more old school, and is instantly a more immediate listen with constant challenges, twists
 and sounds that add wonderful contrast alongside each other; more metallic with some effect applied to the 
 vocal track making it hugely experimental and abstract. Plenty of texture paste here, interwoven well, making
 it a responsive, forward thinking ride.
