Freerange records boss Jamie Odell, or Jimpster as he's known amongst the house music fraternity, released "Alsace & Lorraine" in September of last year. A man who's rather fond of remixes and remixing, it's no surprise that we see an entire piece of wax dedicated to just that. Josh Wink, Dairmount & Berardi Perspective and Ripperton are on duty here, and a rather lovely job they've all done of it too. Josh Wink offers two tweaks, the first of which is led by a meandering take on the lead riff. Congas creep in and dance around some glitches and twitches while little else happens until a glorious kick comes to play after the build up. It's a twisted, eerie and thoroughly enjoyable adaptation. Dairmount & Beradi take a ravier stab with their turn; heavier kicks and prominent high's sit subtly over the whirring chords holding a distinctly dancefloor-centric edge. In simple but effective Ripperton style, it's the glockenspiels and groovy looped bass line that steals the show. Juno's pick of the bunch without doubt!
