    I must disagree.. I find this EP amazing! Silkie's version is bright luvstep, classic Silkie sound. Calyx & Teebee remix is very good, love the bassline and it's trancy dnb feel to it. Bagged it and don't regret at all.

      Highly let down by this release. I'm surprised that such weak remixes were let in, especially because Shadow has shown little interest for Dubstep remixes. The Silkie remix is nice but has little to nothing to do with the original save for the vocal. Still a nice jam. The Kev Willow remix is brostep garbage which I definitely wouldn't have expected to get Shadow's approval and the Calyx & Tee Bee remix isn't exactly great either. The DnB remixes Shadow played during a live show I've been to last year were all better. The Robotaki remix from the digital version would have fitted a lot better on this. The Engine Earz remix is pretty forgetable as well. Overall I expected a lot more from this.
