This is a fine 12" single. The first four mixes are decent extensions and moderate mixes of the original, nothing terribly special. A few of the mixes have a nice ESG sample up in there. What makes this single very, very worthwhile, though, is the final mix, "The Dusted Mix". Clattering, heavy beat with welcome, odd samples and whirring electronic rub noises that pop up in a nicely suspenseful way. A bit dubby, stripped down. The first half of the mix mostly lets the vocal melody do all the tuneful lifting, stripping out most of the other instrumentation except beat and droney bass...but then the whole thing does a sprightly 180 and the funky bass and horns appear from nowhere, the ESG sample makes a reappearance for a short while, before the whole thing returns to the minimal beat towards the end... it's deconstructed pop, the way I like it best. A lot of restraint and a great sense of timing.
