Actually in an interview, Coldcut said this:

"When he heard it, Eric B described it as `girly disco music,' and Rakim said it was the best remix he'd ever heard; I thought both assessments were quite brilliant."

possibly one of the best remixes ever, coldcut to me basically came and virtually slayed the original, and it still sounds fresh today! i really love the use of some of the more unique samples on this record, such as the Ofra Haza sample and the ending drum break sampling of playschool's bang on the drum(!) at the end of the track. recently had to buy two of it also, as the copy i recieved jumps at the intro (one of my fave parts!). a real floor filler depending if the crowd is right.

djpasq, eric b and rakim don't like the rmx cuz we all would rather here it's quirky samples and arrangment, made possible only by virtue of Coldcut's genius and love for rising above "street cred"... nuff said...

Proof that genius equals longevity... Coldcut was the standard back in the day for pure, uncut fuggitup-ness.... They still are the vanguard of good electronix --johnnysizzle

Yes, that`s true push-man, and for all those who don`t know it already: Eric B. and Rakim do not like the Coldcut Remix version `cause in their minds it doesn´t have nuff street credibility... Make dis clear for yourselves ..Oldschool rap pioneers together with Ofra Haza (sic!) samples and stylish dancefloor samples....Same Procedure like with A.R.Kanes heavy guitar (de)constructions in M.A.R.R.S.´s "Pump up the volume"..But that´s the way dancefloor goes....
