From the news section of globalunderground.co.uk:

James Lavelle’s brother Aidan brings you GU[MUSIC]’s third 12” release under the guise of Ficta.

'The original mix of ‘Eli' has already appeared on our infamous 'Afterhours' jaunt as well as James Holden's 'Balance 005' and James Zabiela's 'Sound In Motion' Mix CD’s.

James liked the track so much he remixed it for this full release; creating a full on big room breaks mix that’s a speaker blowing, peak time mover and shaker.

The Original mix and James Zabiela's Rave Lizard Remix will be available on 12-inch on Monday 26th April.

This could have been a killer techno track, because that initial riff is so dope. The piano melody kind of ruins it.

Wow! What a peachy tune! The build to the break consists of a chunky drum beat with techy fx. Wouldn't sound out of place in a tech-house, or techno set, in all honesty. The break comes out of nowhere and hits you with it's sublime beauty. Long synth sweeps coupled with a minimal piano melody. As suddenly as the break comes in, it leaves back into the chunky part of the track. The James Zabiela remix does the original track credit, and transports it onto a totally different dancefloor. He comes up with a dark breaks track, with a filthy unstoppable bassline, and vocodered vocals. Lush breakdown too! Great remix, but in my eyes, the original just shades it by a hair.
