Riding high after the blanket success of his debut album, Daniel Avery is back on Phantasy Sound once again with some dangerous remixes from his album, collected from several vinyl releases. Audion returns Avery's previous remix favour with the messy mind games of "Need Electric", which find Matthew Dear's alias reaching a previous peak of dark and freaky sound design fit for the more deviant dancers. Matt Walsh takes on "Free Floating" with a curiously dualistic interpretation that flits between sweet natured piano chords and off key acid paranoia, all set to a slow and immersive thud of understated drums. In addition to the album's title track, where an old school progressive house bassline is chewed to pieces by bursts of electronic feedback, Factory Floor's Gabe Gurnsey provide a fine remix that sounds remarkably restrained for a member of the inheritors of Throbbing Gristle's throne; like Avery's original Gurnsey keeps things mid-tempo but strips everything back to basics, with a simple analogue arpeggio which adds an early industrial quality.
