Notes

This is the good pressing on black vinyl without the surface noise that affected the mispress. It is normally identifiable by the spelling of "Andrew Phillpott" on the rear of the sleeve.

    A fine pair of remixes here. The Rebreather version is a very spacious ambient interpretation of Monolake's original. That original was a jerky, mechanical sounding techno track that had an unusually (for Monolake) positive feel to it, almost even melodic at one point. Here it gains a melancholy and introspective vibe which peaks early with strings that follow the same melody that appeared towards the end of the original version. This could be the soundtrack to the experience of standing on top of a mountain, watching the clouds fly past underneath and around you. It develops more of a rhythmic feel in the second half but still retains that celestial feeling throughout. This is the track which really suffered from the pressing fault on the original run. I had bought a copy of the first pressing so was delighted when the Monolake office sent me a replacement copy free of charge.

    On the flip, one of Robert Henke's occasional collaborative partners, Deadbeat, offers up a refreshingly different interpretation. The space is still there, but what carries this track along is the dynamic rhythm section rather than the atmospherics. Soft double-timed bass drums and understated dancehall style rhythms combine with some sub bass lines and the more mechanical and glitchy mid range. Once again that chord sequence from the original appears and carries the track on to a very well thought out peak, before fading back into space.
