On REMIX SELECTION, Statik Sound System's TEMPESTA gets put through the wringer, by a bevy of trip-hop luminaries. Tao, for instance, brings an archaic elegance and resonant percussion to "Sonar," while Cut Le Roc funks up "Dreams of Mine." Spacer, meanwhile, gives "Amazed by You" a swirling sweep and Mr. Scruff puts a bounce into "Dr. Wheeler." A dark drum 'n' bass pervades "Valentine," courtesy of Kid Loops, and Aim brings melodic hip-hop to his version of "Amazed by You," while Juryman lets "Free to Choose" take on bongo fury. The Statik crew also provide their own tracks too: "Living in Essential Times," a sped-up remake of "Essential Times" introduces a rap into the proceedings, along with a more prominent string section, and "Outside Now" is a dense slab of sound with White's voice whispering above. A nice collection overall.
