Gary Clail On-U Sound System ‎– These Things Are Worth Fighting (12″)

1993 and as we move into the 90’s dance remixes became the staple release on 12″ vinyl. This was the time when the duration of a CD single could last as long as an album, where the names of Oakenfold, Robertson, Weatherall and Weatherall were nearly on every dance mix. The rise of the Super Club, Renaissance and Cream.

Gary Clail last release and off the album “Dreamstealers” is given a variety of mixes. The Perfecto (Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne) mixes are quite synthy, almost prog rock.   Lion Rock (Justin Robertson and Mark Stagg) go for a classic house mix with bright strings. I love the way The Young Gods (Franz Treichler and Bertrand Siffert) manage to get on remix duty, producing a dubby, grungy industrial version that plods along menacingly.

Gary Clail’s message as relevant today as it was back then.
