02 West In Motion (Haunted Mix)
03 West In Motion (Weatherall Drum Mix)

INFO > This Celtic tinged prog house obscurity was recorded by DJ/producer Matt Early under the guise Bumble, and released via U2’s Mother Records imprint. The single was touched by the hand of Weatherall, which generally improves almost everything.

Utah Saints – I Want You

Utah Saints
“I Want You”
1993 FFRR Records (UK)
FCD 213 / FCDP 213

01. I Want You (Edit)
02. I Want You (Extended)
03. I Want You (DJ Tim’s Funky Bliss Mix 1)
04. I Want You (Utah’s Mormon Extended)
05. I Want You (Sabres 130)
06. I Want You (Sabres 110)
07. I Want You (Sabres 110 Metal Dub)
08. I Want You (DJ Tim’s Funky Bliss Mix 2)

INFO > For their fourth single, Jez Willis and Tim Garbutt borrowed a riff from Slayer’s “War Ensemble” and invented techno metal. The original version isn’t my favorite effort by the Saints; however, DJ Tim’s mixes are highly practical for the dancefloor. Weatherall and company thoroughly overhaul the track as well.

Special thanks to Jen for CD 2 (FCDP 213, tracks 5 to 8).

I WANT YOU
