04. Fox Force Five (Big C’s Break Of Dawn Mix)

INFO > Chris Day and James Bradley produced some memorable singles and remixes in the mid-1990s. Unfortunately, “Fox Force Five” isn’t the duo’s finest moment, with its contrived sampling of Samuel L. Jackson’s dramatic delivery of Ezekiel 25:17 from “Pulp Fiction.” However, Andy Cato’s brilliant ‘Break Of Dawn’ revision handily salvages this release.
