Veteran Englishman Mark E's "Black Country Dub" is up first, and chugs along with a heavy synth injection while a sampled guitar lick serves as the only instrumental link between it and Lambkin's original effort. Newcomer Marcus Marr offers up the highlight on this package. The multi-instrumentalist's diverse musical background shines through on his maiden entry to the DFA catalogue, churning through synthesised funk, 8-bit glitch and reductionist nu disco in an expansive effort that simply does more than the original or either of the other remixes.
Barcelona's John Talabot gets cosmic, stretching Whang's vocals out alongside his own Balearic platform, while Michael Mayer reworks the similarly upbeat "Tuff Enough" in typical Mayer style. Jilted synth riffs combine with the original's lyrics for a result that, despite coming off a little flat, matches the curious workability of Lambkin's own production.
