One of Perc’s favourite tracks returns on the Perc Trax Ltd sub-label, an imprint purposely created for reissues and collaborative projects. Originally released in 1993 as part of Thomas Heckmann’s ‘Drax Three EP’, it was featured on Carl Cox’s seminal F.A.C.T. mix CD on React and alongside ‘Amphetamine’ has become one of the biggest tracks of Heckmann’s career. Each of these three new remixes keeps the spirit of the original mix in place whilst twisting it into something radically different and contemporary.
Opening up proceedings are Perc & Truss, hot on the heels of their recent sets for Awakenings and their ‘Two Hundred’ 12′. Built on one of their trademark distorted kick and bass assaults the mix has been a highlight of both producers’ sets for months. On the B-side AnD deliver something very different to their previous releases, fusing punk drums with overdriven monosynths, which makes their forthcoming debut album even more of a mouth-watering prospect. Closing the record is The Exaltics who bring a slice of true analogue electro to Perc Trax with a remix which is one of the highlights on Perc’s forthcoming mix CD…
