Two of the best tracks from Luke Slater's mighty Messenger album get the remix treatment. Under Silent Servant's care, "Bell Blocker" is transformed into an esoteric dance floor track. The hissing percussion that prevailed on the original is still audible, but the US producer deploys sonic blips over a pulsing, clinical groove - and offsets its functionality with a dreamy chord sequence. The Black Dog offer even more radical interpretations of "Beauty In The Fear". The Sheffield act's second version has some bearing on the original but once again spacey pads temper the splurging bass. However, it's the first 'Destroyed on Purpose' remix, with its gentle atmospheric ambience, that really rings changes to Slater's tortured techno.
