The Sub Account are one of those outfits that seem so prolific that writing about everything they do seems silly. I joke about how much Yunomi has done in 2016, but this duo have probably been busy three times over, with remixes of songs (mainly numbers from anime) and no shortage of live shows (also, at anime-centric events…I saw them once drop the My Melody theme at one such gathering, and it was bonkers). Thank goodness for collections like The Sub Account EP Annex Vol. 1, a gathering of lossie reworks via the pair. It leans heavy on the breakcore-style remixes of cartoon songs and J-pop that long-time Maltine listeners know well, and they’ve selected some high-quality numbers to add extra energy too. Perfume’s “Computer City” gets turned into a late-night burner, the titular phase sliced and diced and transformed into a workout that still carries traces of the original cut’s technologic melancholy. That one is a good representation of what The Sub Account do so well…all of the songs here get modded for the dance floor, but the source material itself is strong on its own, and the duo know it. Anime idol outfit Walküre released one of 2016’s stealthiest J-pop jams, and The Sub Account’s edit simply plays up the drama and makes it all a bit faster. They turn another idol number, “Calling Calling,” into a Pa’s-Lam-referencing club cut, and closes out this EP with two delirious takes on numbers from the idol video game Aikatsu!
