'Different Perspectives' can be regarded as a truly essential Enrico Mantini EP that once again confirms his reputation by delivering his trademark sound of stripped down keep it simple raw deep house. Put the needle in the groove and you will plunge straight into one of the harshest raw tracks around, where a deflated kick meets a narrow, coarse chord stab which is then confronted by a warm subtle organ underlying and clean vocal loop, giving 'Take Me Make Me' a rather antagonistic feel. Up next, 'I Will Be True' is a sound pledge that Enrico made back in 1993 which he kept to this very day. This remastered atmospheric feeler is simple in construction, yet complex in result, managing to keep your body on a move while driving your mind far away into hypnotic sunny spaces.

Jumping straight to the B-Side, we are greeted by the second remaster, the hot and sweaty 'Work Out' from 1993, an expertly produced deep, fat and nasty mover that makes clever use of short and simple loops layered one onto the other, all driven by a soft kick, rasping bassline and sparsely topped by a funky vocal sample. 'Whenever You Want Me' reaches out deep into the landscape with its mesmerising key stabs, glittering percussions, eerie pads and the ever reassuring "I'll be there" vocal loop gradually fading in the distance putting the last touch to an altogether outstanding release!
