The best work of V/Vm comes in his sound hacks that are immensely more creative and listenable than the original songs. "I'm out of my mind and bacon rind" is definitely one of those.

V/Vm's hack of "Out of your mind" by True Steppers consists mostly of frantic pitch shifting with glitchy stutters and time shifting, the pitch shifting especially creating new melodies and chord progressions that don't exist in the original. Quite frankly, the original track is quite dull, just a straight ahead garage track without much imagination. V/Vm has created almost a whole new song that flows amazingly well even through all the awkward rhythms.

Jansky Noise's hack of "Groovejet (If this ain't love)" by Spiller is more straightforward than the first, mostly using pitch shifting on a low frequency oscillator, but still succeeding in making a more interesting track than the original disco/house track. Sometimes the music gets so high or low it sounds like it's going to destruct and fall apart from instability. It occasionally breaks for some glitched noise inserts.

Regarding these two tracks in particular, apparently they were both originally released in the UK the same week in August of 2000. "Out of your mind" was Victoria Beckham's first single as a solo artist (well, she's hardly "solo" here, is she?), and within the week Groovejet took over the No. 1 single spot on the UK charts. It seems the British news hyped this as a personal battle of sorts between the two producers.

I hadn't heard of either of these two tracks, or even the artists until I found this on the V/Vm site, but at the end of the day, neither had made a particular interesting track without the intervention of the fine people at V/Vm Test.
