First up is the John Acquaviva re-edit. Now I must confess that John really hasn’t done too much to the original in terms of additions, but the edits and little extras he has thrown into the production are quite good. The beats for the most part remain the same, and a nice little synth pattern is a cheeky extra early on in the track. It isn’t till we see the main piano line that we see the major change, where John adds a little ‘skip’ to the pattern that makes it stutter along quite nicely. From thereon however not too much is changed to the winning formula of the original.
On the flip though is where the real fun in this package lies with the very anthemic Ashtrax Remix. Expect some intense broken beats in the early parts combined with snippets of the piano line and some bubbly melodies. A simply devastating baseline soon enters the production as this track hits full throttle, and it combines quite well with the piano line. A ‘Psiko Garden’ vocal line is probably not needed in the production but it builds quite well towards the main and exciting feature of this remix, that being the main piano line that has been reshaped and tweaked, and it combines well with some nice melodic pads and uplifting effects. The track takes some twists and turns too with constant changes in the arrangement making it interesting throughout.
A great remix by Ashtrax has definitely saved the day in this release, as the Acquaviva re-edit alone was definitely not worthy enough to warrant a re-release. But the b-side will definitely make a purchase of this release quite viable.
