Deep house mastermind XDB follows in the footsteps of Quantec and Rod Modell to revise Aaron-Carl's 'Crucified' in three sublime versions. The original has remained at the top of lists and the front of boxes for nigh on 15 years now, so XDB treats it with due care and attention. On the remix he gives a subtle shift of interlocking bass and crisp machine rhythms buried under head swilling synths with that yearning vocal filtering through the cracks like sunlight from a dramatically cloudy scene. Meanwhile on the flip he gives a prime edit of the original, embellishing the bassline for hypnotic effect before giving another complete overhaul in the immersive 'Rainforest Remix'. Any self respecting deep house fiend NEEDs this one.
