This is my favourite Brian Eno production - and that's saying something! It's hard to describe so I'll leave it to the man himself. :) The following is an interesting extract from an interview with Eno taken from the website...

Interviewer: That's one thing when you are dealing with your own music. But you've also remixed, fairly recently, the EMF song "Unbelievable" for Red Hot + Dance, and that bears almost no relationship to the original song.

Eno: If you think that bears no relationship, you should hear the one I've just done for a band called The Grid who had a song called "Heartbeat," which was a hit in England. Quite a nice poppy, simple song. But I think they may have been a little bit embarrassed by its sweetness because they asked me to remix it and they said, "We'd really like it if you did something weird with this " So I said, "Right!" and rolled up my sleeves. That's the kind of invitation I like.

What's interesting about the remixing scene in England is that often the remixes bear no resemblance whatsoever to the original. If they didn't share the same title, you wouldn't know they were connected.

The Grid and I did a nice exchange. They did some remixes for me, of "Ali Click", which are real dancefloor remixes - the kind of thing I could never do. Very machine-like, locked up. Everything I don't want to do. But it's nice to have somebody else do it for you. I did some mixes for them, which are exactly the opposite. I took "Heartbeat", which was a dancefloor kind of song, a nice, light pop song, and turned it into this incredibly grungy, threatening, menacing, terrifying, weird, ambient, dissonant ... it's a beautiful remix, I think.
