Bodycode - What Did You Say

Recording info

How can you say you_d live without me?, intones Lerato, the thick-voiced female speaker at the center of Alan Abraham_s new single under his Bodycode moniker, What Did You Say?. As the voice gradually distends and mutates into unrecognizable curliques, Lerato_s final refrain of our minds and bodies are all one floats off into the middle distance - it_s a declaration of sorts, an announcement that the Berlin-based Bodycode has pulled back the whirlwind clicks _n cuts of 2006_s The Conservation of Electric Charge to reveal the tight, jacking rhythms and romantic dance- floor universalism of his second full-length, Immune. While What Did You Say?_s multi-layered hi-hats and bassline/kick-drum hopscotch signal Bodycode_s newly uncluttered aesthetic, B-side Imitation Dub (an exclusive dub version of the Immune album cut Imitation Lover) deepens the scope with a watery, ever-ascending organ line and a swarm of microscopic percussion pin pricks. On Baby Ford_s remix of What Did You Say?, the legendary UK acid-house pioneer drags the tempo down to a crawl and beefs up the bass, giving the track the distant, slo-mo feel of walking underwater.
