        Can't believe I wrote that nonsense in my other comments about this track. That's what happens when you log on to Discogs after a night out.

        The remix is of course by Svek, and I'm warming to Funk D'Void's mix, although it still falls short of the original and the Svek mix.

          What a track. My hope is that in the future they'll be encouraging our kids to listen to this in the schools. What a motivation.

          There are so many words that could be used to describe this track, however none would give it justice. You have to hear it, feel it, dance to it, ride with it !!!!!!!!

          On the flip UMEK rises to he challenge and delivers the house mix, retaining that phat bassline with the emphasis on the sax solo, yet never losing the integrity of the original take.

          Funk D'Void attempts to create the techno alter-ego by leaving his mark on the track utilising breaks, (that initially don't work, eventually make sense, then lose it again ....) underpinned by a sweeping bassline and his take on the original melody.
          Lars' mistake, in my opinion, is that he tries to make the track his own..............!!!

          Perhaps he should have rejected the opportunity to rework it in the first place. But then..... How could you?
