Lionrock - Packets Of Peace (Remixes) (Deconstruction)

A label responsible for many a dance hit in the 90s, the Sony driven Deconstruction imprint returns following dormancy for almost a decade. Justin 'Lionrock’ Robertson’s Packets Of Peace still sounds in relatively good nick in original form, but it’s the remixes that take home the money. The Chemical Brothers mix from way back when still does it, courtesy of its hearty percussion and wobbly synthetics, whilst the Jeff Mills mix is all smiley piano lines and stuttered vox. Riva Starr supplies a couple of brilliant mixes where ethereal strings, genuinely uplifting keys and storming percussion combine beautifully.
