I think James Holden put "Bites Da Dust" together if my memory serves me right.

This triple pack is definitely a mixed bag, some good, some not so good.

Koncrete “Law Unto Myself” would later see a full release on it’s own. It’s basically Bullet In The Gun 2.0 but not as good. Some of the lyrics are a bit cringe worthy, which is a shame because Merle Forbes voice fits so well with this style of music and the melody itself really isn’t that bad. Thankfully there is the dub included which doesn’t have any vocals at all.

Tall Tin Box “God’s Love” & Planet Perfecto “Bites Da Dust” would also see their own separate releases. However, they’re both terrible (in my opinion) and not worth investigation.

The real draw card here is the otherwise unreleased “As The Cracks Appear” by Jan Johnston. The track is lifted from her ill fated album on Perfecto, and is presented here in two remixes by some pretty big name producers.
First up is Humate’s interpretation. It’s a little hard edged, but otherwise pretty much what you would expect. Using the vocal pretty sparingly, except for in the breakdown where more of the song is introduced. Overall it’s a pretty solid track.
Next up we have a rare remix by Highland. I first heard this track on Highland’s weekly radio show here in Melbourne, way back in 2001. They use the vocal even more sparingly than Humate, only using a couple of lines woven into their distinctive big room progressive style. The production is really top notch and there are some great sounds used. This remix really drives with a lot of energy. If you’re a fan of Highland’s sound it’s well worth seeking out.

Yeah I know this triple pack basicly sucks and it's not on many peoples want list. But there is still a decent Humate Mix on here that you are not going to find anywhere else I don't think. It's Humate.
