Still recognised as one of the evergreen classics from Chicago and inarguably influential, "Computer Madness" gets another round of treatment at the hands of modern technicians for the Thema stable. First up Function and Jerome Sydenham meld their styles into a simmering techno melting pot that holds back on the jagged angles and instead opts for a linear workout, with just that quintessential bleep synth line lurking in the murk. Function goes it alone on the flip with a more Detroit flavoured workout defined by yearning strings and scattershot drum machine splays, and in case you don't have a copy the original gets tacked on the B2 for good measure.
