My Strictly Rhythm pressing was terrible quality - end recording sounded really low and muffled.

has anyone any idea what the breakbeat remix of this track is doing the rounds, Im a massive fan of the original and used to cane it back then but this remix is very true to it only with a more breakbeat type theme (no electro or funk). Would love to know whos done it?

The Tweekin Acid Funk remains a unique track.
Back when it was released, this one came as an absolute UFO and blew almost everyone's head off, pushing acid to some uncharted frequency limits, plus the use of raw breakbeat makes quite a fresh and rockin dancefloor mixture.
So after almost 12 years and despite the fact that this might be one of the most overplayed records of the 90s, I still have tenderness for this warrior acidbreaks anthem, eventhough one could argue that Josh Wink's production might sound a little too simplistic and not crafted enough to make it 100% timeless.
