i rock with the Strutt remix, starts off as a nice bit of wiggy dancefloor goodness & then shapeshifts into a dreamy vibe before bringing it full circle... v effective journey track

Wow this has shot up in value. I used to own 3 copies of this, and took 'em down the charity shop. Damn. Darren Emmerson Underworld mix - yep that's the one.

I’m lost with words in this one. Yes, I’m talking about the Darren Emerson’s Underworld Remix of course. The megalomaniac proto-trance, prog house anthem is so powerful and yet emotional. Cleverly produced and yet not commercial at all. Oh man, I hate to say this but I’ve always though that Emerson was the driving force behind Underworld’s success. And for me the production quality before him and afterwards he left speaks for itself. And this is a definite proof that he was a genius.
Like smany I found this brilliant piece of electronic music when listening to John Digweed’s ’MMII’ compilation. But the precise moment was when I was snowboarding the hills of Åre, Northern Sweden in Easter, on a sunny warm day. In fact it was so warm that we had our T-shirts on. I had my freeking minidisc played, headphones, and boom, this came. I was hooked albeit it looks years for me to get a copy.
I do get a bit awkward when commenting a proto prog house release. You know, it’s not cool to like on paper. But if you are a sincere music music lover you can ignore all those trendy cool things that today’s and tomorrow’s music hipsters are listening to and just focus on was brings joy to your ears. I can only imagine that listening to the Emerson Remix back in the day sounded like aliens landing. Heck, it still does. It’s a masterpiece not just in its own class, by any standards. So maybe it sounds a tad dated, but it’s mesmerizing appeal hasn’t gone anywhere.

the bassline of the original mix is covering or inspired by "bang the party - bang bang your mine" https://www.discogs.com/Bang-The-Party-Bang-Bang-Youre-Mine/release/183559

The Original Gypsy mix on this release was heard out in 1991 on radio (Kiss 100FM) and was played by Sasha & Pickering at The Warehouse in Leeds (July 1991 if you collect his tapes) so there must have been a few white labels or DATs floating around at the time.

Most importantly the intro to this cut is taken straight from 'Expander' by The Future Sound of London. So much so I thought that this was actually some obscure remix by FSOL for at least a decade. No wonder I had problems tracking this down !

The Te Quiero vocal whisperings are familiar to all who have heard 'Sueno Latino' by Sueno Latino or 'Tequiro' by Musto & Bones - The latter I'd also really recommend tracking down as its an absolute class bass tune.

Still, for me this release is a cracker and the Original Gypsy mix has a great bassline which on a sound system sounds immense. Great that all the people who commented here have their own favourites on this release.

Darren Emerson's Underworld Mix is as bomb as it gets. Quintessential golden-age off-your-tits rave trance. One of those very few tracks which manages to be slow, funky, and full-on, simultaneously.

When I got the record it was as if a secret weapon was bestowed and it came with instructions: if you only get to drop this once in your career, save it for the really really big rig. It's true, this one has balls the size of meteors and deserves a large audience and larger sound system. The bassline is, as the previous review said "to die for."

Warning, this track is deceptively slow. You really have to plan your set for it. Tracks like this taught me the power of restraint.

The Strut Mix on the flip is a gem but pedestrian in comparison to the Underworld mix. But then, few tracks can stand up against this one.

All the mixes are good on this, however, the real stand-out is the "Darren Emerson Underworld Remix."
The remix does sound very much like something Emerson would have produced, however, there is something a bit extra with this one: it has a haunting melody more akin to something Stefan Robbers would do. That added to a bassline to die for makes this one more than worth seeking out.
If I ever do a desert island discs then this would be one of the tunes going with me.
...and the fact that it clocks in at just shy of 10 minutes is a bonus.
