Amazingly, it's been some 12 years since the release of Give It Up, arguably Crazy P's first major dancefloor hit (certainly their most accessible and radio-friendly single of the period). Here, the original 2002 remixes single - featuring versions from LAID, Faze Action and Reset - gets re-mastered and reissued. Interestingly, the throbbing deep house-disco take from LAID is featured here in its vocal form (the original 12" boasted just the instrumental). The standout is arguably Faze Action's revivalist disco interpretation, which boasts a seriously heavy synth bassline and dubbed-out drum machine handclaps in addition to Crazy P's original instrumentation. The Reset version, meanwhile, has a surprisingly warm and organic feel that makes it particularly attractive.
