It was way back in 1992 that Remake - an Italian quartet that serial pseudonym collector Alex Neri amongst its number - first released their take on Vangelis' legendary theme from Blade Runner. You can find their original version - a pulsating, floor-friendly take which heavily influenced the development of both trance and progressive house - tucked away on the B-side of this timely Renaissance reissue. The main attraction, though, is undoubtedly Maceo Plex's A-side remix. Fittingly, this not only comes smothered in creepy noises - very Blade Runner 2049 - and a fresh tech-house rhythm track, but also boasts sharp Fairlight-CMI stabs and far greater use of the oh-so-familiar piano melody.
