Derrick May's remix of "Shame" is probably the finest Nitzer Ebb remix there is. In my eyes, it is also superior to the original version. It's more raw and aggressive with less song structure in it and the odd time structure here and there. Perfect blend between EBM and techno, and that's rarer than one might think. The only other artists that come to my mind in capturing that spirit are Code Industry and of course Final Cut.

The Heckmann remix on the flip is nothing to write home about. Original synth line over a way to fast and clean tech-housey beat and vocoded vocals. No, thank you.

It's funny how well the remix originally made in 1989 has aged compared to the one made in 2001.
