Whilst disco stalwarts Crazy P and Bristol lynchpin Appleblim might not seem like the most probable of bed fellows, kudos to 20:20 Vision for enlisting the latter to remix the former as the results are illuminating. The Applepips boss is clearly a fan of "Changes", having included the track amidst a constantly exciting FACT mix last year, and he offers two varying but equally excellent revisions on this 12". The "Bristol Soul Mix" pays homage to early 80s sound systems such as The Wild Bunch and Soul II Soul, and also sits perfectly amidst the current lineage of dusted and broken house music that's making Bristol so exciting right now. It's complemented by the monolithic creeping nature of the Deep Under Dub which is clearly geared for the darkest moments in the darkest clubs. Elsewhere Crazy P band member Chris Todd adopts his Hot Toddy alias to deliver a typically searing midtempo house revision that deftly incorporates the rhythm from Quando Quango's Love Tempo amidst the constantly simmering synth patterns, whilst 2020 Soundsystem's Fernando goes deep into the track, offering up two versions. His stripped down and built back up dub version hypnotises, whilst the flipside vocal version waits a glorious age before Danielle Moore's familiar refrain appears. Needwant's Mario Basanov adds further horizontal poise on a string heavy bubbling disco revision.
