I think this is the best edition of 'Austin's Groove'. If you like the concept of this track, forget about the single on Ink Records: you only get 3 (vocal) versions. Here you get the double.
The 'Main Mix' (and original version) of 'Austin's Groove' was conceived around a sample from the 'Theme From The Six Million Dollar Man", written by Oliver Nelson.
"A man, barely alive. We can rebuild him: we have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better... stronger... faster..."
The music helps. And strange coincidence, the Daft Punk title 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' was all around the place at the same time (2001).
Musically, the original version elaborates on a recreated sample of "Handsome Man", performed by Sparkle, which add a strange - but perfect - conjuncture to the full picture.
The Dub still use the famous vocal bit over a different disco sample, filtered to death. Surprisingly, it sounds a lot like what would become 'Hypnotizing' a year later.
I always disliked the vocal mixes, sung here by Shawnee Taylor. If you are a Funky House aficionado, you probably heard her moanings on the Dronez mix of 'Brazil Over Zurich' by Dimitri & Tom. Her lyrics are pointless: they move us away from the original concept. It's all about that 'strong woman who can pay her own bills', again, and again, and again. What does it have to do with Steve "Handsome Man" Austin?
Still, the talents of Mutiny are to be recognized: their version is well done, even with the vocals on top.
The Subtech mix is frenetic, faster, and bring back the elements of the original mix in a delirious night trip.
In all, "Austin's Groove (Let Me Live)" is an excellent single, and was the first Nicolas Scaravilli released under the name Kid Crème.
