Disc One ( DFECT29CDS ) »
Jose's Deep Madness
Jose Nunez speeds up the pitch and adds a good percussion loop with a quiet underplayed muted jazz guitar laid over it. Sparse keys tumble over the groove during the chorus while Shona Phillips vocals remain untouched, with only slight use of a vocoder. For the breakdown, the swirling organ notes are sustained and Shona's vocals hold everything together before the vibe is brought back into earshot. Joze opts for a quicker, harder mix with less soaring vocals and a rolling bassline.


BMR Club Mix
The bass in BMR's intepretation stomps along, before warm wurlitzer keys and a vibraphone-sounding sample is used. The vocals have been churned up before being re-attached to the groove. A mellow but disco-twinged piano snatch takes the place of the wurtlitzer for Thea Austin's verses. BMR have been careful to balance the bass for a club environment and the jazzy groove for home listening. Admitedly, this is a not a peak hour mix, perhaps being more suited for a DJ on a terrace at sunset.


Stanton Warriors Vocal Mix
Industrial hand claps and some warped scratches begin this two step remix. The hard bass then comes in, along with plenty of percussion. A filtered 303 melody is used before a short piano melody is added. Thea Austin's vocal sit in the middle of the mix, in an assortment of tumbling electric keys, miniture scratches and distorted bass drum samples. The vocals kick in again and during the breakdown, extra keys are placed at the top of the mix.

Cover supplied by DJ Dusty.

Industrial hand claps and some warped scratches begin this two step remix. The hard bass then comes in, along with plenty of percussion. A filtered 303 melody is used before a short piano melody is added. Thea Austin's vocal sit in the middle of the mix, in an assortment of tumbling electric keys, miniature scratches and distorted bass drum samples. The vocals kick in again and during the breakdown, extra keys are placed at the top of the mix.
Same as CD version.


Stanton Warriors Dub
For this dub, the Stanton Warriors have chosen to begin immediately with crisp two step beats. Thea Austin filtered and echoed vocal snatches float over the groove, replaced for the main part by a range of samples and quick synthesiser keys. The slow bassline kicks in one quarter of the way through the song. A three-tone trumpet sample adds to the weight of the mix, as does a bubbling electro chord. More of the vocals are used in the closing phase of the mix. I found this dub boring, because the samples used didn't hold the track together as vocals would do. Some of wailing notes used in the last segment were annoying, too.


B15 Vocal
Treble heavy percussion is combined with harp keys and some filtered effects. B15 treat the vocals to reverb and echo and Thea Austin's verses are cut and out with speed. There are plenty of snare drum rolls and to add depth to the mix, the remixers have placed layered duplicated vocals. This two step mix is full of strange quirky effects and is a good two step interpretation.


B15 Dub
B15 use exactly the same percussion loop as their vocal, although the little vocal that is used is placed back in the mix and lacks coherency. Other than that, there is little to distinguish this mix from the one above.

King Unique Dark Dub
King Unique lay some flanged dirty piano keys and scratches of all varieties are thrown into the mix. Throbbing bass and its corresponding percussion loop get draped over the groove, along with the sparse vocals, which have been vocoded for maximum darkness. A wooden block sample sits high in the mix and it fuses well with one of the scratches.


BMR Club Mix
The bass in BMR's intepretation stomps along, before warm wurlitzer keys and a vibraphone-sounding sample is used. The vocals have been churned up before being re-attached to the groove.

King Unique Club Mix
A dubby piano bassline comes into earshot before a second, lighter piano provides a platform for Thea Austin's energetic vocals. Added to the chorus is a twangy guitar. Scratches from their Dark Dub (see above) are borrowed and used in a less disparaging way.
