||1.||"Perfect Systems" (Steve Summers remix)|
||1.||"Hetrotopia" (Young Marco remix)|
Mystery Australian producer Michael Ozone proves his time in the ESP Institute was not temporary as the two tracks from his must check Perfect Systems get twisted in all new directions by Young Marco and Steve Summers. In original form, Ozone's productions were a deliciously idiosyncratic blend of Giallo and early eighties European New Beat and both remixers excel in retaining the feel of the source while stamping their own sonic personalities on them. L.I.E.S. mainstay Summers tackles the title track, increasing the Italo drama markedly amidst loose drum programming and thick analogue bass and adding a further sense of menace via his own masked and echoed vocals. Complementing this, Rush Hour's secret weapon Young Marco retains the mysticism inherent in "Hetrotopia" but adds his own dense murky dub laden embellishments.
