In 1996, Matt Warren continued to work on a variety of different projects. This included remixing four tracks on Poi Dog Pondering’s single Hard Sometimes
Recording of Hard Sometimes took place at Warzone Recorders, in Chicago, where six mixes were recorded. This included the Hard Sometimes (Dub Mix) and Hard Sometimes (M-Theory Radio Mix) which Matt Warren Mike Rogers and Steve Moore remixed. Matt also remixed the Diamonds And Buttermilk (Remix) and took charge of production on Complicated (Berlin Mix). These tracks were part of Poi Dog Pondering’s single Hard Sometimes.
When Hard Sometimes was released on Platetectonic Records, in 1996, it was described as disco tinged house. This was fitting as disco and house were two of Matt Warren’s favourite genres, and twenty-two years later, that is still the case.
