Tim van Leijden turns his hand to a batch of contemporary Rephlex tracks, kicking off with a remix of Cylob's "Diof '97" which adds a fat electro rhythm of stuttering drums and mad handclaps to the excellent cheesey melody of the original.

Bochum Welt's "Greenwich" has the same treatment - big 1982-style rhythms make it a body-popping floor-burner that never was. Unfortunately the brevity of the original track is lost though.

The original mix of DMX Krew's "You can't hide your love" suffered from both the weedy backing track and awful vocals. At least the first problem is addressed here, but those vocals still grate.

A "micromix" of each track follows, each being a minute or so long. The first surprise is the Diof '97 track which is highly distorted, like an overloaded soundcard playing onto a chewed up cassette, played back through micro-speakers.
The second is "Greenwich" which appears to feature hand-programmed, un-quantized beats - cool as fuck.
The DMX crew has just a heavy pounding beat and the vocals (which at least stops the vocals sounding off-key).

Good fun, but a mixed bag.
