The The Azelby Inn Remixes is the third E-FUNK offshoot release and features something of a coup, with Egyptian Lover on remix duty. Sadly, this appealing prospect manifests in an unremarkable dub edit, with the original's infectious hook drowned out by garish funk riffs. Newcomer Nick Monaco shows more gusto with a spacious electro re-rub that, while failing to ever really go anywhere, does display more invention.
The Melanie Blatt-featuring cover of early '90s rave anthem "Need Your Lovin" gets a lounge-paced rework by Marcy Hotel affiliate John Camp, while "Ecstasy"—the All Saints singer's other contribution on EFUNK—is remixed by William Rauscher, AKA Night Plane. Rauscher's stirring and almost Balearic interpretation improves on the original, and marks the EP's highpoint in the process, but it's not quite enough to redeem an uninspiring release.
