The second remix 12" is kicked off by Audiofly X, no strangers to the Get Physical roster. They offer a lean, lithe minimal techno rendering of 'O Superman', which like Reboot's remix withholds Anderson's vocal for as long as possible before releasing it in a heart-stopping breakdown towards the track's end.
Felix Da Housecat, one of dance music's larger-than-life characters, proffers a larger-than-life remix, doubling and re-doubling the 'Ah-ah-ah-ah' refrain, underpinning it with gushing, dramatic strings and ominous piano notes. Really, though, it's all about the killer synthesizer stab which functions as the main riff, ricocheting off a tough kickdrum and snare pattern that'll reduce dancefloors to rapturous rubble.
Rounding off the package is a remix from Robag Wruhme, one half of the inimitable Wighnomy Brothers. It's a masterpiece of editing, as Wruhme constructs a shimmering minimal techno fantasia, full of miscrocopic movement and detail. Its elegant design really becomes apparent with the arrival of a plaintive piano figure that brings all the pathos of Anderson's original into the heart of the club.
Six incredible producers unite to celebrate and update a truly majestic, otherworldly piece of music whose sound and sentiment still resonates today. You will find the three other producers on Part 1.
