Everything here is available on the compilation with some other cool remixes (not to mention more adequately priced):

Stunner of a record, keeps on building and goes into the C2 usualness and heads to a Detroit journey of optimum madness. Bloody great played on a good system too.

This is all about the Carl Craig Remix...I know shocking, right?...The handclaps in this track and the creeping acid line with Cesaria's haunting vocals make this a track worth hunting down. Works well with house, nu-disco, minimal...just about anything. Carl never ceases to amaze me as this remix slowly ramps up over a full 8 minutes to a full on monster. Great opener, closer, or anything in between.

Having Carl Craig remix your record is almost always a good idea. He can make magic with very pedestrian tracks. In this case I can't compare his mix with the original since it's not included, but the magic in this record is undeniable. It builds and builds and builds, using claps and vocal bits for the first 2/3 of the record which sounds awesome layered with just about anything instrumental. When it finally breaks down, this monster bassline creeps in and the beats finally fly and people go absolutely bananas. The 909 programming towards the end makes it worthwhile to play the whole track out.

Pepe Bradock is also a visionary, but his mix sounds very tame compared to the dancefloor incinerating C2 mix. He takes it on a deep dub ride that creates a whole other mood for the track.
