On my original 2001 copy of this record, "I Can Take It" is only 10:12 long. Never had the repress, so I can't compare.

Creating subtle yet hard-hitting club bangers must be the bravest route to traverse for the electronic production artist. But when it bangs as hard as this, nobody can deny it's quality

The releases were actually separate and someone decided it was a good idea to merge them because the records looked the same (!!!). Now we have a real mess for anyone looking to buy originals.

The Reissue/Repress isn't identical. The original was a better sounding pressing (and, yes, I've owned both) from a different plant... the reissue's artwork is a cheap, pixelated photo of the original's label.

Why would anyone wish to buy the original, if the repress is identical? I really don't get it...

people say when you drop a stone into "I Can Take It" it never hits bottom...

That's how deep it is.

For "I Can Take It", Theo brought Dwele in to redo the vocals from Recloose's "I Can't Take It". The result is possibly even better than the original. This is straight up voodoo house music, Dwele's looped scatting and plaintive proclamations of "I can't take it no more...." set the stage for twisted Rhodes chords and eventually a devastatingly deep bassline that will hammer on deep dancefloors. Theo's insane asylum for drum machines hi-hats drop in for added flavor. "Sawala Sayale" continues the voodoo vibes with a groove based entirely on nasty loops of hand claps and chanting. This is what real tribal house music sounds like.

gosh i have i really had this in my collection since 2001? this ep is definitely one of the deepest. forget the references to voodoo etc...
it's just damn fine deep, and spiritual house...so minimal, yet so much is going on.
