The banger of the bunch is hands down Paula Temple's remix. A once dubby, disjointed tune, "Stranded" becomes a brash and rattling piece of industrial techno in her hands, and even the soft-glowing pads she slips in from the original don't diminish the ferocity of her drum work. In fact, the synths add some essential color to the track's harsh contrasts. "Watery Drumming" gets a reverse treatment from Lee Gamble, who rearranges its sparse beat into a herky-jerky groove rife with the titular FX.
On the B-side, Perc's version of "Heimweh" is especially tame for the English rabble-rouser. He sends a sturdy 4/4 pulse through vaporous ambiance, glossy chords and tinny clatter, and it winds up a nice enough ride. The spindly, Actress-esque "Loop #42" is dismantled and given a more defined and complex structure by Minor Science. Chirpy synth notes are pitched up and sent aflutter around his nimble skip of a beat. Like Lee Gamble's remix, this one might not get a ton of club play (that said, the drop about midway through is a real doozy), but it rounds out a balanced and frequently brilliant collection.
