MINIMUM REMIXES is the newest R21 release out on Binalog Productions. It has the original R21 tune (which was included into the double vinyl compilation "Advanced Funk Vol.1") plus nine new versions reworked by new electro producers. Mike Ash and DJ Xed didn't vary too much from the original structure, they preferred working on rhythm variation and stop and go's. Microslav did a great version enriched by new catchy melodic lines and robotic atmospheres. N-Ter's version plays with electro funk melodies and dark atmospheres. Mirage (the dj chosen to rock on the forthcoming Street Sounds UK Fresh Reunion) made a nasty version with hard beats and mid-Oriental melodies. The Grow remix sounds claustrophobic and robotic with warm pads, bleeping sounds and filtered vocals. Pip Williams enriched his upbeat mix with a raw bass sound, dub influences and spacey synth sounds. Binalog Freq focused his mix on obsessive 4/4 hard beats and nice techno acid influences. R21 closes the EP with a "Slow and low" version of their track, which now sounds like a nice electro ragamuffin tune.
