Skip the FK mix and head straight for Moritz Von Oswald's Development Mix. The manipulated string and woodwind samples, the bongos, the metallic synth stabs, the Quadrant Dub-era synth pads, and the constant mix and fx manipulation make this a 13+ minute sonic trip, transcending, revising, and moving forward the Basic Channel territory/sound palette. Had Moritz made the ReComposed album to sound more like this remix, 2008 would be hailed as the year Basic Channel released a new album.

I agree and disagree but I cannot click both options at once. Moritz' mix is nice but dont underestimate FK's attempt. First few listens I had the same opinion as you but the FK mix is really a grower for the clubs that doesnt cheese the original. FK used really nice bass in his attempt and I dont think it should be overshadowed just because it shares a plate with MVO. One thing I find undesirable about this record is that they have a 14 minute track pressed on 10" which forces smaller grooves, quieter sound. This really should have been a 12" to do it properly.
