original is featured on james holdens balance mix - has a nice use of bill hicks standup (another track around this time was adam freelands 'we want your soul').

its a rare day when the remix outdoes the original, but nathan fakes takes the cake on this release. out of this world, fucking around for the first half, all buildup to a huge ending.

highly recommend this one for both tracks

This is a really nice package, the original mix is a phat, smooth minimal house affair with a gorgeous warm bassline and flowing chords. Border Community mainstay Nathan Fake keeps the groove of the original in his remix, adding some titanium-plated techno beats and quirky glitch edits, and a great cinematic ending.

my only complaint is that there are only 2 tracks in this release, where other BC releases have had more. a more stripped down version of the original wouldn't have gone amiss, but this is a minor quibble. a strong release.
