If you exclude the awe inspiring remix Regis did for "G", this is, in my humblest of them all opinion, the only release where the remixers actually outdo T47's originals. I mean, Chris Liebing had a 'close but no cigar' situation with his take on Snout, but it won't be long after the first synth stabs of Hood's version of Track 5 kick in that you'll realize what the name of the game is. If you liked his track "The Family", you ought to love this one as well. It starts out in a similar fashion. Typical Hood sharp stabs tease you in a few minutes deep before the percussion drops, and then - bam! Tommy Four Seven's original was a heavy hitter, but the combination of his able-bodied, metallic heavy sound arrangements combined with Rob's meticulous loop orientated minimal approach is a win-win like few others I've heard during these past few years. Robert Hood makes a wise choice and keeps Tommy's robust drums, carefully building his own synth madness and then letting them rip when you've lost all hope they'd ever get dropped. Don't like using this kind of terminology, but this is as close to perfection as it gets these days!

As for Sigha, well... He takes the eerie ambient Verge, and re-utilizes its heavily processed, female vocal as a loop. And a dope one at that too! An eight minute onslaught of perforating metallic kicks, detonating bass drops and hypnotically menacing vocals for your maximum dance floor pleasure! What a tune, and only do you begin to appreciate its effectiveness and might when you take into consideration it has been constructed out of a two minute piece of beatless techno. Club slaughtering, mouth watering hard techno ammo anno 2013. Own it and cherish it for years to come. Both remixers are up to their tasks, Robert Hood to his usual high standards, but it's Sigha who exceeds my expectations on this particular piece of wax. Both sides are untarnished manifests of unhampered exaltation.

Rob Hood remix here is the reason to own this. Typically basic 1/2 bar Hood techno hook, but combined with the sound design, accentuated by a heavy low frequency pulse, and long stretches of kicklessness...the brooding, dark vibe builds to a frantic pace, while keeping the classic Hood loop-focused trackiness that attracts any crowd-respecting techno DJ.
