Thankfully, they all manage to make the chosen track their own. Silicone Soul's take on "Skin Clock" is a pleasant deep groove powered by sinewy bass pulses, but if you're searching for a rawer take on the eternal house sound, then check Redshape's version of "CCTV Nation." The masked one's dense beats, snapping drums and signature brooding bass are all present and correct, but so too is a building, climaxing synth line that recalls Lil' Louis at his most pre-orgasmically wanton.
Mark Stewart, who is increasingly focusing on classic Chicago nuances as Claro Intelecto, continues on this path with his take on "Northern Electronic Soul." Layered, dubby chords briefly suggest a lingering fascination with his Warehouse Session releases, but then a spiralling acid line comes in straight from the Windy City. Finally, Octogen delivers a remix of "Kissing Someone Else's Dog." Starting off with a brooding synth sequence, its spiky breaks and discordant jarring riffs shoot through the arrangement like hot needles puncturing skin and complete a stylistic volte face, divorcing the rework from any similarities to the original material. As remix packages go, this is really is the dog's bollocks.
