The A-side is deep, tough and jacking, and boy does it roll. It's vintage Peter Van Hoesen, with an added layer of aggression that, thanks to rock-solid percussion a la Shed's "That Beats Everything," makes it by some way his floor-friendliest number to date. The original's menace is all there, right the way down to the snarling bass and ice-cold pads, but it's transformed into a sleek, pulsing 4/4 burn that's as sexy as it is paranoid. Twisted Spine you say? Go on then.
Perc's take is less instantly recognisable, but no less effective. Staying true(r) to the breaks-schooled original, he opts for a Surgeon-esque techno-going-on-half-step flex, garnished with the odd junglist snare stab for added darkside cred. As with the A-side, it's full of intimated violence, never quite peaking but foaming and frothing as it rehearses whatever carnal act it has planned. It's a fittingly pent-up update: true to the spirit of techstep (and, to a lesser but no less significant degree, dubstep), but positively reeking of techno.
