♫♪  Kero Kero Bonito - “Sick Beat (Danny L Harle Remix)”

Oh no! PC Music’s Danny L Harle stripped “Sick Beat” of the sick beat made from that really perfect level start sample. But it’s OK: the new beat is really good. Harle chills it out at some points, spices it up at others. He illustrates it tangibly (notably, the sample under “super computer” and “time warp”), mimicking a video game-like journey where worlds (and thus, the sometimes annoying, sometimes beautiful music scoring them) appear and disappear rapidly. An icy world replaces a kawaii world with just the flash of a TV screen, and we are on the same cyber journey that KKB frontwoman Sarah Bonito plays. The fact that Harle keeps the entirety of her vocals intact shows his mad respect for her sometimes beautiful, sometimes annoying, always original flow and also for Kero Kero Bonito as a whole. The power of their work comes out of the fact that as electronically manipulated as it is, it sells because of its liveness. Kero Kero Bonito is the rock band of the “PC Music and etc.” universe. A perfect foil to someone like QT.
