East London based singer Alena gets the remix treatment and in stylish fashion. Her track "Hard Times" gets done over twice. Firstly the "Autocycle Remix" is all hands in the air with big piano rolls for the peak time dance floor to compliment her gorgeous vocals. The Ourra remix of "Don't You Know" is a proper nu-disco rendition just like the following "Yam Who? Original Mix" the real highlights here. They're reminiscent of the sounds on Futureboogie and Freerange et al. Not a bad thing at all! The Leebo Freeman remix of "Use 2 Hold Me" being more reminiscent of Tuff City Kids with its chunky rolling arpeggio and generally analogue soul vibes. Now that's a compliment!
