Review: Junksista – 'Life Is Unfair (And Love Is A Bitch)'

'Life Is Unfair (And Love Is A Bitch)'

Sexually explicit German duo Junksista return with a new club-orientated EP, 'Life Is Unfair (And Love Is A Bitch)'. The track, taken from last year's 'Bad Case Of Fabulous', was definitely one of the better songs on an album that was overall a good effort, but still rather patchy in places. So it is no surprise that it now sees a release in its own right.

The album version of the title track was a nice and funky take on a minimal electro sound that favours a simple and memorable vocal hook to ensnare the listener with great effect. It's a formula that works well for the band and makes a refreshing change to their usual ridiculous and rather tiresome lyrical subject matter. Psy'Aviah however show up the duo with a far more interesting remix of the song that really kicks its dance potential up a notch. Also included isEssence Of Mind's remix of the title track, which goes into a harder direction that again plays to the club audience, while Canal Pop break out the Kraftwerk-esque techno for a very different approach.

Virgins O.R. Pigeons reform 'Sexpectations' into a more well-rounded and presentable offering than the lack-lustre early 90s r&b version previously been included on the 'Bad Case Of Fabulous' album. While Gabor Gercaz and Zulu DJ give us two very different, but very upbeat versions of 'Fabulous'.

Junksista's one strength is in the sheer variety of their palette, even if whenleft to their own devices they don't necessarily live up to their expectations. However with 'Life Is Unfair (And Love Is A Bitch)', they have ensured a continued club presence with a good range of complimentary remixes that will no doubt provide a good introduction to the band while they iron out the creases for their next full-length outing.
