in my personal opinion the Butterfly radio version is one of Tilt's finest work. great vocals, melody, bass- and piano line all driven and mixed in perfection. what's make this version even special for me is that an instrumental sample i know very well from "Grace - Not Over Yet", is present throughout the song but especially in the chorus parts. love it.

'Butterfly' is a crisp example of the cracking trancers Graham, Parks & Wilson used to pop out in their heyday. It has a great drive, nice bassline and razor sharp production. However, this is all spoiled by Zee Cowling's terrible vocals. The real surpise on this is the b-side.

'The Phantom' is drum & bass flirting track and when I first heard this i didn't think much of it. It sits between a juxtaposed position between the style of trance Tilt was outputting and nuskool breaks which Parks & Wilson would be do more of later on. It did however grow on me a lot when i heard it again a few years later. The piece itself is a driving piece of music with a dirty breakbeat and a low subby bassline. Synthtwitters & some dark pads back up a synthy guitarplucked as the main lead. The track is criminally overlooked in my opinion.
