That Scottie Remix has got to be the best version of this track in existence. Probably the best of all the Scottie, Ricky, Johnny tunes for that matter. More Evil Dead 2 samples than you can shake a stick at. "I have seen the dark shadows moving in the woods" sample with those eerie strings and laughs (also from the movie) gets me every time. Too bad it's the only one I don't have and costs a bloody mint! Someone should repress this (hint hint) :)

Awesome tune!
I've both the original and also this remix on yellow vinyl, but sadly this one got slightly warped when a mate put it against a warm air vent in my old house after a mixing session... Sad times!

Watch a superb video to the remix here. All the samples from the Evil Dead film in time to the video. Well produced and a classic Scottie tribute. When I first heard the remix I couldnt believe how dark it was and chopped up more than some of the characters in the film. I f the link does not work go to you tube, type in Subnation andf look for misseverythingtoo. Enjoy, Darkside horror at its best. Also look at missys other vids as he has a couple to dnb and a video to Dj Excels "jaws" tune. The flip side contains the original which is excellent as well.
I cant enter the url so go to youtube type "scottie evil dead video" and have a watch.

"Scottie" is a legendary Amen Break based timeless Jungle masterpiece that devastated the dancefloors and will always remain a standard of the genre.

The Remix version opening the A Side has a very funny sample from the movie Evil Dead where the professor is translating an ancient booklet about the evil where he says, recording on tape: "I see the dark shadows moving in the woods". There are other samples from it, like on the moment where one of the couples' girlfriend says "I don't wanna die! You're not gonna leave me, are ya?", and the guy answers "You're not gonna die!" among other samples of ghost laughings.
The beats are made from the storming Amen Breaks (from the original "Amen, Brother" by The Winstons, 1969) combined with the bassline is very strong & intense.

The orginal verison is the better one from this single to play on the dancefloors; it starts with some of Evil Dead's samples "Is there only around the bridge?" "I'm not gonna die!" and the title's theme, "Scottie!" (which is one of the movie's characters). There is an amazing double breaks mixture, a melting of hot shot Amen Break snares with the other Breaks from the very beginning of the tune played backwards, and a deep-obscure bassline, resulting in a cataclysm.

On the B Side, "Somebody Always Dies" is based on Sharon Stone's sample "Somebody Has To Die" from the movie 'Basic Instinct' where her character tells the one of Michal Douglas that somebody has to die on the story she was writing for her book.
You can also hear Rochelle Fleming's sample "Ooohh!" from the classic "Let No Man Put Asunder" by First Choice.
