phoreski, who was the first ever remixer for iib returns to remix >electric sunburst< from the harlyn bay lp, creating a heads down dirty balearic slo-mo basement monster as only he can. next up is tony watson from adult contempory / la who remixes >pacific breeze< adding a touch of west coast b-boy flair. peter visti takes on the not-yet-released track >childhood melody< creating an epic balearic journey starting fairly uptempo before changing gear to groove along at a more leisurely slomo speed. top quality as always. finally, and proving the boys have the jump on tomorrows stars early, the amazing & much sought after aeroplane rework of >too hard<, originally released in 2007. another all round top package.
