For Athens of the North's latest release, Euan Fryer has turned re-editor. The acclaimed digger has taken a scalpel to his two favourite "DJ sides" from Stark Reality's notoriously heavy catalogue. As he explains on the Athens of the North website, Fryer's version of 1968 single "Say Brother" - a psychedelic pop era funk anthem in some quarters - was inspired by a desire to get rid of the famously freaky ending, which tended to scare rather than inspire dancers. Elsewhere, his tweaks are mostly on the mastering side of things (he's made it noticeably louder without losing any of the original flavour). Over on side B Fryer delivers his snip of warm-up favourite "Busting Out of Doors", lopping off the random ending while allowing the original's trippy instrumentation room to breathe.
