Track "Forklift (Luke Slater's Filtered Remix)" is an impressive release which burn the dancefloor for sure! Several filter variations chirurgically realized by M. Slater, especially around the 1/3 of the track duration, contributes to make this record a huge and sure value.

Issued around the same time as Jeff Mills's More Drama, the Filtered Remix has a monotonous, looped synth layer, not too distant to that of The Fuzz (Loophole Mix), which confused me a little, the first times, when neither of those tracks was very familiar yet. Later on in the track, as the filter is operating in full effect, the resulting sound is somehow similar to the heavily processed Acid line of Acid Junkies' Two Minds In Motion. In early 1997, before finding out what the track was, those comparisons lead me to refer to it as the Jeff Junkies, or the Acid Mills track. Then, of course, it became difficult to not know what it was, seeing the huge hit status it reached, but it was only years later that I realised the remix was named after another Slater track.

Ten years later, the original (already an oldie in 1997) sounds a bit dull, Wild's mix has been completely forgotten, but Slater's is still immediatley recognisable and terribly efficient, skilfully combining stripped-down passages, tension build-ups and eruptions of sound.
Surely, it qualifies as a very serious contender for the best remix ever crown.
