A 10th Anniversary Remix release from the much maligned Cleopatra label and their roster of artists. Cleopatra was always a love and hate relationship for me having religiously bought many CD’s in the late 90’s from them. Sometimes excellent releases but often a lot of repetitious filler. Just like these 4 mixes, some work some just don’t……you decide! Bubbling Acid House from David J (Bauhaus bassist). Tinny repetitive techno from Girl Eats Boy (Lol Hammond from the Drum Club). Vocoder rave breakbeat from Christian B and Darren Krammer. The pick being from coldwave duo Exhibition and Judson Leach, some nice synth orchestra and guitar, it keeps the song relatively intact.
The vocal sample “Pure Energy” is from Spock off the T.V. series “Star Trek”
