Weston is only listed as "mixer", but claims what he did was more like "remix & additional production". He got tourette's, he says. I'm not fullt sure what it is, but he seems almost a bit psychotic when he writes about the band nowdays. He says Fehlmann looks like an "aids victim", for instance, because of his lack of hair. Could it be a misspell? Maybe it's "aid victim" he means, hinting that Paterson might be a nazi? Could it be a weird type of humour? Like "Hello, I'm rag" maybe. Maybe a saucer picked him up and gave him rabies, and put him down again. Maybe the same ones that steel cows? In interviews Paterson says "people will die" if they get to know where the drums were sampled from. The vocals were sampled from an interview with Ricky Lee Jones. This was the first time Thrash was in the band, circa around when the second Peel Session was aired, where he was mixing. He also co-wrote "Earth" on the debut album, and was then a full time second member on "U.F.Orb". "Little Fluffy Clouds" was re-issue'd by Big Life in November 1993, with a different catalogue number, delaying the live album on Island Records. It was then an even bigger hit than in November 1990.

This double pack is bangin. Danny T and others translates the seminal Orb "fluffy clouds" samples and noises into deep house and drum & Bass modes. The Pal Joey remix has really grown on me. floaty synths and trigger samples at 105 bpm. The one true parker breaks mix really creative goes through phases that are straight up jungle. Danny T brings his best game. The detour mix is club friendly 125 BPM dark broody house. Overall everyone uses the samples in new exciting ways and that's what a remix should be about.

I don't know much about this type of music but I can tell you that I think "Little Fluffy Clouds (Dance MK II)" is a great Ambient-ish track. I like how catchy it is and how it carries you through the whole song. I can never get tired of this single.

Anyone else have a problem fitting this record on the platter? The center hole is too tight.
Is it just the 1993 re-issue that is like that?

Danny Tenaglia's Downtempo Mix of Little Fluffy Clouds is a stroke of genius. When heard first by any mortal at the normal tempo, something seems wrong. The tempo feels wrong, and you may be forgiven in wondering why you should listen to it. However, if you have a record deck capable of pitch adjustment you will be able to hear the true genius of this mix. The Downtempo mix has to be set at 33 +8% to be played properly.

My personal fave mix on this is Pal Joey's "Cumulonimbus Mix". It's druggy and dreamy, and David Mancuso turned it into a late night anthem at The Loft! I love the ethereal "after hours" feel and really FELT this mix under David's big disco ball. To me, the slow four-on-the-floor tempo really works so much more nicely than any kind of hard, funky break ever could. In this case, 4/4 rates this classic downtempo groove a 5/5. That's just my personal opinion of course, and hopefully other headz (sic) will chime in and contribute some other perspectives. Now it's time light up a fat one to this all-time greatest remix of an Alex Paterson masterpiece...(cough-cough...grin)

Freeland's mix stands out the most, as he incorporates a breakbeat that sounded as if it belonged on the original. The bass and synths he drops fit the song's atmosphere like a glove.

The entire theme, including the bassline, is from a traditional Hindu song, originally written for sitar and other traditional instruments. The lyrics have been added later and were not part of the original.
