Cooper is credited, along with Fast Eddie Smith and the Beatmasters, with having helped popularize hip-house, although his talents in that department aren't really utilized on 'Lost'. Instead, after a lengthy intro in which Cooper drops a bit of science, Romboy introduces a pounding acid line, effectively cutting Cooper off from letting loose with much more than "I'm lost inside my mind" and a mid-song repetition of his introduction. No worries: the bassline is engaging enough to hold its own.
The same goes for the lengthier and darker dub version of the original. Romboy takes things in a more acid-tinged direction, unfolding layers of 303 over a frenzied nine minutes. Mazi & Duriez, on the other hand, almost romanticize the mental confusion of the theme, focusing on the melodicism of the once-relentless bassline and creating a place where dub and acid can somehow co-exist. Not an easy task, surely—and it doesn't quite come off as a result—but with source material as excellent as the original mix of 'Lost', I suspect it was too tempting not to try. Stick to the Romboy material here and you won't go wrong.
