This joint release turned out to be a bitter disappointment for me. Considering the label and the two artists involved, this is surely one of the worst releases that Mr. May has been involved with? Only three stars I'm afraid and that is really out of respect for all of Derrick's other previous productions. I agree too that the Sterac mix is the best version.

I noticed that they used a sample from the track Herb Alpert Beyond.

For me this is a great driving slice of House- (or maybe you can call it techno).
the "Basic cut" version is the best!
It strips the mix right down to the beats, stabs and effects in different combinations.
Clever and energetic.
Nice piece of production !

I bought this one without listening to it for the Derrick May remix....and promptly got rid of. Unfortunately no where near his original works or his other remixes (check his Sueno Latino remix for an out of body experience!!)

This an unusual record, hard to classify and rate. If you have Beyond by GU you'll recognize the sample. All 3 versions of the track are different and playable in different kinds of sets. It's versatile.

It might not sound like typical Derrick May, but listen to some of his other collaborations (e.g. with System 7) and his style doesn't always hit you over the head.
