Busface have, for their debut EP, decided that a nu funk electro breakbeat reinterpretation of Sweet’s ‘Love Is Like Oxygen’. Now, the original was awful sentimental tat of the lowest order but I was positive and pressed play on my CD player with an open mind. Sadly, I couldn’t get the god-awful original out of my mind. Busface have given the song a thorough beating with the electro stick and if you’ve not heard the Sweet doing it you may well love it. Also included is the instrumental of ‘U R The Future’, ‘Boom Boom Baby’ – both of which are a decent trance numbers. Finally, we have the EMP Breathless Mix of ‘Love Is Like Oxygen’, which applies a whole new level of atmospherics to the Busface version.
