There was a time when John Dahlback was famous for the sort of chunky, stripped-back tech-house that appealed just as much to deep house heads and techno types. "Take This Thing Back" is a little different. Sitting somewhere between the balls-out madness of Digitalism and the ragged electro-house previously championed by Herve, Sinden and company, it's a breathlessly sweaty concoction. There's something of a surprise bonus in the shape of a remix by Stuart Price under his Jacques Lu Cont moniker. Recalling his brilliant early work on Wall Of Sound (think his cover of "Disco To Disco"), his remix fuses classic electro, robust disco-punk and mentalist acid.
