The Wild Pitch Mix does it for me. Very deeeep.

While listening to this tune after more than a decade, it struck me how much it has the same sound that later Basic Channel had in its more house oriented tracks as Q 1.1 and Quadrant dub. A very groovy record!

RIP Spank Spank! You might be gone, but you're tunes will live forever, especially this one! Viva Wild Pitch!

Haha they took the "Rise From Your Grave" sample from Altered Beast on the Sega Genesis!

"Rise From Your Grave" got the status of a standard underground House tunes from the early nineties and surely among the wickedest from Phuture. The composition belongs to Earl Spanky, Roy Davis Jr. and DJ Skull.

The difference came out through DJ Pierre's Wild Pitch Mix - he made a special trip of insanity and excellence, with a weird-hypnotic atmosphere, and two incredible basslines, one of them sharp acid, oscillating during the version. "I just did the Wild Pitch Mix on this tune, where I took the vocals out, changed the basslines, the drums", said Pierre on an interview in Sao Paulo, Brazil, years later.

The version result was far away from the usual house tracks of that time, and got a huge release on Strictly Rhythm, from New York. 'Rise From Your Grave (Wild Pitch Mix)' also came out on the 'This Is Strictly Rhythm vol. 2' major compilation. Later in the same year (1992), the Belgian label R & S Records released it on ‘In Order To Dance IV’ 5LP/2CD compilation. This is a timeless, avant-garde tune that definitely represented new perspectives to the house music universe.

Awesome dark Wild Pitch burner - 'this is cocaine speaking...' vox & Altered Beast arcade game sample - 'Rise From Your Grave. First hearded this at The Ministry of Sound (in the first year or two while the music policy was still good - it died with the demise of the'Open' nights IMO) & it blew my mind.

Deep dark nastiness from DJ Pierre, Roy Davis Jr and Spanky - my money's on the instrumental London Radio Edit. Released in 1992, but would still work in a set today.
