The unapologetic sensuality of Jensen and the Flips’ ‘Slow’ is among the band’s – and in extension, the song’s – quintessential merits when it comes to crafting their own brand of suave Motown hits. It is the sort of song that attracts tension and surprises, more so ever, with electronic music wunderkind(s) Tandems’91 remix – which eliminates the coyness of the original and switching it to a dancefloor-ready smash. Tandems’91’s retro discotheque approach to the track was fairly conservative, sparing radical changes but playing with the overall pace. Moreover, its poppy embellishments and house music-esque buildup further defined the original’s charm – a sweet-talker’s 411 to romance.
