    That mediocre movie (Blade) tainted the Confusion remix for people born after 1980, who probably hadn't heard it until they saw the movie (nor have they probably ever heard the original New Order song). The main riff was played so many times on TV, by the time they heard it at clubs it was already somewhat stale. Taken out of that context though, it's nothing but a masterpiece of techno-acid fusion remix that renders the original almost unrecognizable. Re-Mover is pretty sick as well. Just cult.

      The greatest remix of all time? Probably. Absolutely gargantuan. Destroys dancefloors. You could plug this record into the National Grid!

        For such a classic record, I cannot believe that no-one has commented on this.

        Firstly, there is the A-side. It is a pounding acid monster, a solid 909 kick, with a 303 line. As with most Dan Zamani and Tim Taylor tracks, it builds really slowly, but that is half of its charm. It slowly adds other rhythmic layers, vocoded vocals (from New Order's Confusion), the Confusion sample and a second distorted 303. It breaks down to both 303s and a sound sampled from Dune...sounds basic, but it's extremely twisted, so by the time the kick is back it feels like you can breathe again. This track is made famous by being the track played in the Vampire Rave scene in Blade, and I have to say full marks for whoever picked this track to be played at that moment, they couldn't have picked a more underground track for that time.

        The B-side is a more funky acid version using more of the New Order Confusion vocals, it's not as driving as the A-side though it's still a decent track in its own right.

        The C-side is again another 10m25s master class by Dan Zamani and Tim Taylor on how to deliver a minimal pounding acid monster. Relentless 909 kick, funky 303 bassline, with distorted second 303 over the top (a lot of delay makes this layer bounce around in stereo).

        The D-side is a techno workout from Cari Lekebusch, which is fairly solid enough, but lacks any acidic tweaks.

        In my opinion I think this is a solid double 12", the A and C side tracks being the stand out tracks on here. I think the TB303 and TR909 are two of the world's greatest inventions, and this record is testament to what can be achieved with these machines, and how their sound will dominate any dancefloor.
