I don't see one single lyrics website that interprets the line "back, your body's possessed by a track" correctly, but you did. Good to hear I'm not imagining wrong lyrics.

A pretty cool remix package from Media Records main act Cappella, featuring the classic U Got 2 Know remixed by Gigi D'Agostino and Turn It Up And Down remixed by Mauro Picotto.

Around 1996 both D'Agostino and Picotto were working along similar lines, the post Eurodance sound that was called Mediterranean Progressive. Both tracks here have this more trance feel to them than the originals did, and it works well in both cases.

Gigi D'Agostino builds his remix slowly, chopping the "back, your body's possessed by a track" vocal for the first few minutes over a groovy deep bassline before the familiar main hook enters. Never one to shy away from long mixes, at almost 10 minutes in duration perhaps D'Agostino could have been a bit more clinical in his editing but the track still has enough drops to mix in and out of easily.

However, Picotto's R.A.F. Trance mix of Turn It Up And Down is understandably the A-side mix. While the original track was a somewhat housey affair, Picotto here reforms it into a trance vibe much like his own productions of the era such as Bakerloo Symphony. A dark, minor key melody instantly distances this mix from any others, and it really works well.

An interesting point in the history of two of Media's most famous producers, this is a record worthy of investigation.
