Empirion - Narcotic Influence (Remixes)

A couple of mixes here courtesy of Dave Clarke and Secret Knowledge.

Dave Clarke comes on a bit 'Purpose Maker'-era Jeff Mills with some big synth riff over it, which is OK if you're into that sort of thing.

The Secret Knowledge mix sees Needs start off in slowed down breakbeat mood with some vocal samples, before kicking in after about a minute or so with what is actually one of his better mixes. Uses the samples from the original track to make a fairly pounding techno stomper.

The sleeve 'art' leaves a lot be desired - why do they bother when it must be much cheaper to do a nice label in a plain white slip-case?? With the exception of the God Within 12" I posted earlier, most dance 12 sleeves are pure pish...

Never heard the Secret Knowledge mix before. Not as good as the original.
