The Promise (Original Mix)
Half of this is styrofoam, mere birdsong-laced piano roaming, as time-wasting as the set-up to any good murder mystery, before spontaneously cracking into Hyde. The tune jumps back & forth between opposite sides of the universe, tan waves becoming tsunamis of pitch, the previously anaesthetic piano now the murder weapon, culprit, & motive. Extra synth dovetails in, providing yet another eidolon of a perspective.
It is a pity that Rusch & Murray made little more. Their innovation was one of their resounding skills.
The Promise (Ronski Speed Remix)
Unfortunately, TP has only one remix.
At 3:39, the magic is cast: new piano breezes in, more suavely than the sirocco, trekking upwards, resurrecting the electronic vibes from earlier to save us all. Ronski's debut is sickly brilliant in a particular way, pleasing differently; less; but welcome enough to buy.
