Granted, ‘Say Aha’ loses out considerably in the amazingness stakes simply by virtue of not being ‘LES Artistes’. But who said this was a perfect world? This is jaunty, dancehall-flecked and it’s perfectly fine, thank you. More essential is the brainbanging TEPR remix, which chops up the vocal, syncopates the beats and makes it sound a bit more like it’s enjoying a night on the ketamine, before going to Gatecrasher.
