I'm a fan of this original mix as well, over the Ray Keith remix. The remix is good, but possibly a little too clinical for me. I always go back to this version. The breakdown is an absolute monster - dark and uplifting at the same time.

Some interesting comments but I too Prefer the Ray Keith remix of Inesse, this was the one that got hammered in 93/94!!.

The original mix is far superior in every way , (the intro , break edits , weight line , breakdown , EVERYTHING !) ,the tune(especially on a big system) takes the listener on a journey of epic proportions , it catches the essence of 93 perfectly but shines a light of what's to come in 94 , from those super dark and haunting strings on the intro which send shivers up the spine ( for me personally it sets the scene in my mind of an unrelenting force of nature coming to cause complete devastation) , then incomes the amens and snares, and it rolls out in a lead heavy and relentless fashion, break patterns kill me in this track and are excellent throughout , then to top it all off the breakdown( one of my all time favourites is amazing rushy and uplifting pads and vocals to contrast the sinister, jagged edge type of style the rest of the tune takes , the vocal's "keep coming" ... "so strong" "and strings are from a soul track by Innocence, entitled Natural Thing ,the breakdown is a pure hands in the air moment followed by the ugre to wall slap and bust crazy shapes as its back to darkness and choppin drums are taken up a notch on the second drop , it rolls out to 6 min mark before it breaks down for pure pads and vocals till the end , really is tune a can listen to from edge to middle over and over again even after all these years .. track is timeless to me...... the remix is a good tune but has no place so much as being uttered in the same breath as this version ,the difference really is like night and day , I appreciate everyone is entitled to their own opinion , but anyone who thinks the remix is the better tune of the two , is not only wrong , but deserves nothing less than to be knocked clean out for suggesting such nonsense .

While I agree with all the previous comments and I love this tune, this original version and its beat programming is a little too simple for me. (Indicative of Mayhem in all honesty). After just one listen to to the Ray Keith remix (Face 102R) and you will hear a more solid piece of darkside with a 'real' bassline and outstanding beat construction. It was played more by the top dj's for a long time. Ray Keith was at the top of field in 93/94 no-one could rival him.

pure hardstep jungle (with a heavy, dark dose of atmospherics at that!) and pure class. like the commenter below said, this one sends shivers every time! the way the vox are manipulated is incredible, emotional, uplifting. the best production Mayhem ever did as far as I'm concerned and one of the best records of 93 (and there were ALOT of great records).

Agree completely with the other reviews, seminal drum and bass from 1993. As more of a piano's and uplifting type this was one of the tunes that changed my perception of "darkness" back in the day. The drum pattern is amazing as are the strings and atmospherics and the creshendo of ambience with the "keep coming" vocals in the middle of the tune appeals to my uplifting nature!! Its also well worth flipping this over for "let me tell you" a tune in its own right. Face records was ground breaking label back in the day.

This is one of my most prized posessions, and I would choose it to be played at my funeral. Ever since I first heard it back in the day I've never gone more than a month without listening to it. It's one of those tracks you play twice, even if you're mixin for the hell of it you'll still throw it back in and just sit back in amazement at just how deep that vocal/bassline/melody grabs you before the rippin dark side takes you to a totally different place when the break kicks in. I can honestly say I "love" this track, in all essence of the word and miss hearing it played out. I dont think the noizyness of modern Drum and Bass/Jungle really pays much homage to its past, and you realize that when you really sit back and take in a track like Inesse, no amount of modern technicalities, mastering/engineering or aggressiveness can be as hard, dark and emotionally moving as Inesse.
