The latest installment of Public Possession's Under The Influence series is an all-star affair, featuring off-radar re-edits of various obscure, left-of-centre dancefloor gems. Perhaps the most talked-about track comes from Samo DJ's, who's deliciously wide-eyed "Flyer Edit" breathes new life into a cheesy AOR tearjerker, turning it into a Balearic gem. There are a couple of excellent Italo-related reworks - Bell Towers' deep, evocative "I'm Obsessed With You", and Hey Convict man Tamas Jones' rousing version of Italo classic "The Heat of the Moment" - but its Tambien who steal the show. "Deep Hai" is fantastic - a trippy dub disco revision of an obscure Dutch synth-pop gem.
