referencing (Takes Me) Higher (DJ Seduction Remix) / Drifting Away, 12", Promo, W/Lbl, CLSM 006

The funny thing about this record is how it is many ways the inverse of it's counterparts. The original version of "(Takes Me) Higher" was a nice breakbeat hardcore tune with beautiful lyrics but the same as this original of "Drifting Away" is a breakbeat hardcore tune with beautiful lyrics. Then there's the remixes. This remix of "(Takes Me) Higher" Is basically a 4/4 kickdrum version and not much else. I'm not a fan, but having both version makes the tune more versatile. Similarly, the later released remix of "Drifting Away" is merely a 4/4 kickdrum remix. That one I like quite a bit, but in a different way. Definitely a record worth picking up if you're into the CLSM sound or the newer breakbeat hardcore tunes.

Drifting away has all the elements of a good sounding, emotional electronic breakbeat track. A vocal by Stefan B who did the singing on CLSM 4 - Liberation, and the beat programming is amazing. I'm not a huge fan of CLSM tracks, but this is one release that stands out. The remixes of the drifting away track are in my opinion crap.
