Commitment Issues (12th Mix) – The “12th Mix” is a sharp and clean, four-on-the-floor groover. It’s in limbo between both Techno and Electro. It has elements of Electro with the funky basslined, wavy synths and early Juan Atkins-Cybotron influenced vocals. It also has a very stripped, and straight forward early Detroit techno feel to it.
Commitment Issues (Kickflip Mix) – The “Kickflip Mix” is a broken-beat Electro track that has a lurky, slick feel to it. It is 100% the same exact track as the 12th mix. The only difference is the kick rhythm adds for a nice touch of attitude.
Commitment Issues (Trovarsi Remix) – Trovarsi’s interpretation of “Commitment Issues” is a very kittenish Jacking Techno track. The track toys with elements of past and present between the blots of acid, ’90s chords/stabs and hip-moving tom grooves.
