Back in 2000, the Cleptomaniacs remixes were just the ticket to accompany track like Afro Medusa's Pasilda. Both mixes are very similar slices of carnival-inspired house music, pushed through the Soulfuric machine to remove any harsh edges and aimed squarely at bars in Ibiza.

The Swag dub, on the other hand, is much more interesting. Rattling percussion underpins washes of delayed effects that give focus to a big dub-wise bassline. It sounded weird to me in 2000, but it's aged very nicely over the last two decades. Something I particularly like about this version is that it's a 'dub' mix that actually pays some respect to dub music. One of the annoying things about house music in the 2000s was that most releases were bulked out with so-called dub mixes where they had either just cut out most of the vocals or the loops had been shortened slightly. No such laziness here, but then Chris Duckenfield has always been a cut above everyone else.
