Very cool remix! CANNOT (for ontological reasons) be better than the original, but really is quite cool and contains lots of funky beats and samples. Here's one that crossed my way on a flew market just today: Black Riot [Todd Terry]: "A Day In The Life" (1988). A classic Acid House tune in the style of Maurice's "This is Acid" (that is: without the otherwise obligatory 303 and somehow not "acidic" at all).

In my opinion Ben Liebrand's remix is - and Im sure many hip hoppers would beat me down for saying this - better than the original. While I love the original, just as anyone who's into oldschool hip hop does, this version increases the 4/4 beat element making this an interesting mix of oldschool hip hop with classic Acid House sounds.

It samples First Choices "Let No Man Put Asunder" (with "It's not over!") and Mr Fingers' "Can You Feel It?" as well as (i think) a version of "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life" (with the line "There's not a problem that I can't fix, cause I can do it in the mix")

A seriously cool remix. But if you don't know the original, make sure you familiarise yourself with it too (the original samples Chic's "Good Times" for it's bass line).
