- The observant reader will notice that this review is really rather late. Honestly that's because this record leaves me somewhat 'stumped'.
The remix most people will be after is, of course, the Adam Beyer one. He takes Eulberg's chaotic pastoral rave and does the Adam Beyer thing to it, in other words adds a rather huge stomping kick drum and generally ramps up the intensity. And intense it certainly is. However, and this is a completely subjective opinion, I've rather fallen out of love with heavy kick-driven techno and the whole affair makes me rather yearn to hear the original instead. But still, for what it is, it's extremely effective and the techno faithful will no doubt love it.
Renato Figoli on the other hand turns in a mix which starts out as flanged and progressive and then transforms into something shrill and enthusiastic halfway through. Right at the end there's an enjoyable Relief records-esque scratchy jacking groove but this is regrettably brief. I can see it fitting very well into a progressive house set at peaktime but minimal fans will probably find it a little boring and lacking in rhythmic verve.
These mixes both do a splendid job of turning the song into their respective genres and so long as you take a genre-driven approach to dance music there's nothing wrong with that.
