This release sees the debut of two artists, 999 and Amadeas on Carl Cox’s faultless Intec label. The release follows on from a succession of stella releases from the likes of Nicole Moudaber, Harvey McKay, Tomy DeClerque, Carlo Lio and Mattew Jay. Some may think following such artists is quite a challenge but wait until you check out the heavyweights involved in this package.

First up on the release is the original version of ‘Find The Answer’ which is a very well-constructed vocal house number. Something I could see Coxy playing in one of his day time sets. The track is filled with some nicely laid out keys and a very chunky bassline, and of course the rather catchy vocal that runs throughout. A track that will be very well received by the house heads.

Next up is the first of the remixes, and it comes from the man Marco Bailey. Known for his no nonsense full on techno, this is by no means an exception. Marco delivers a fierce rendition of the original using FX on the vocal to full effect. This will destroy dance floors worldwide I am sure. If you like his style you will like this. This will certainly blow the cobwebs off any speakers!

Next up is Bedrock favourites (like the last man), Pig and Dan. Again this is a full on techno workout with bundles of energy. The track is filled with a great groovy bassline, and cymbal rides to die for. Pig & Dan do use the vocal but in a much more limited fashion than the other tracks and it is also far more pitched down. Superb track!

The final track on the release is a remix by the rather faultless Uner. I like the way Uner fuses techno and house but without going all tech house. It has an almost ethereal sound to it. Uner opts to use the full vocal but again pitches it down to full effect. Very good track and one that is a great fit between house and techno. It completes the package nicely.

A great package that includes some dynamite remixes. My only fault is that I wish the package included some instrumental remixes, only because I am not a huge fan of vocals full stop. Once again Coxy’s label delivers some fine house and techno that will ignite any dance floor from Space to your local pub.
