It's fairly rare that a remix will blow you away, but that's undoubtedly the case with Acid Arab's astonishingly good remake of Etienne Jaumet's Metallik Cages, the first single to be taken from the former Zombie Zombie man's forthcoming album, La Visite. Utilising only the briefest snippets from the original (sadly not included in this package), the Paris-based duo deliver a snaking, slow-building, deliciously paranoid rework that puts their exotic intentions and dense Middle Eastern percussion at the heart of the action. In truth, the clips don't do it justice; it's an amazing piece of work. Versatile boss Gilb'r sticks close to the druggy, EBM-inspired chug of the original on his solid Club Mix, but it's his Bonus Beats version - a trippy rhythm cut that makes excellent use of stereo panning effects and weird noises - that impresses more.
