INFO > Singer-songwriter Tori Amos (born Myra Ellen Amos) unexpectedly packed dancefloors in 1996, thanks to Armand Van Helden’s drastic revision of “Professional Widow” (subtitled ‘It’s Got To Be Big’ in Europe), in which Van Helden sliced and diced the song’s lyrics into something very different. The US single edition also includes mixes by Marc Kinchen, while the UK/EU release features Mr. Roy’s rework of Van Helden’s groove.

INFO > London born Mark Van Hoen has been experimenting with sound for over 30 years. He was a member of Seefeel in the early-1990s, as well as that band’s offshoot project, Scala. Van Hoen has recorded as Locust since 1993; however, his original mix of “No-One In The World” was initially credited to W.F.O. and appears on volume two of the “Excursions In Ambience” series. The track borrows vocals from the Carpenters’ 1972 single “Hurting Each Other”; this 1998 reissue includes remixes from Bernard Badie, Armand Van Helden & Junior Sanchez, Frank Fallico, Shem McCauley, and Rob Playford.
