    Red Jerry's Quiet Man remix treads a very similar path to his work with JX for There's Nothing I Won't Do.

    That commercial sounding take on Red Jerry's trademark sound, but still very respectable. His rolling bassline is intact, and the production is of course top notch. The vocal really works too, although once they kick in you can't help but think of that JX track!

    Not bad, a nice remix.

    But flip it over for another kettle of fish altogether. For years (before I had actually heard it), I thought the "Quiet Man" remix was by Quietman. You can't blame me. When the b-side remix is by Friends, Lovers & Family that's what you'd naturally assume yeah?

    Nope. By some odd twist of fate, Red Jerry was chosen to remix the a-side under his Quiet Man alias and FL&F were chosen for the b-side. Anyway, let's get to that b-side...

    The Friends, Lovers & Family remix.

    It starts off in typical FL&F style. Moody, dark, lush pads. Haunting piano. Oh so very mid 90's (Dream House). But soon it kicks in, and you're presented with a 156bpm Trancer. This ain't something you can mix in with Children!

    It's absolutely pounding, but still deliciously melodic and full of that timeless FL&F class. Running in at just short of 10 minutes, you could be forgiven for thinking it repeats itself a bit but you'd be wrong. The entire track expands throughout the duration, never losing interest and constantly sparking your imagination.

    No vocals on this mix of course. Just full-on pure Trance.
