An essential reissue, fully legit and sounding absolutely top shelf.

Back to 2002, the beginning of the new millennium. Tom Churchill's Headspace Recordings label had already been making an impact on the deeper strains of techno emanating from within the UK. With releases from detroit's Sean Deason, CiM, Hanna, Vince Watson and many more, Headspace was already a 'must check' label within record buying and DJ circles. This stellar split EP with NYC's Dennis DeSantis saw the pair remix each others tracks, both turning in very different, but equally complimentary sonic excursions. Churchill's 'Spaces' is surefire deep-space techno boogie of the highest order, swinging and funky and melodic in equal measure. The DeSantis remix of 'Spaces' is also a total winner, a stripped back exercise in expert minimalism, full of feeling and a perfect partner to the original mix. On the flip is Dennis DeSantis' 'Leisure', a sprawling and laconic broken house jam. Brilliant and teasing melodic synth motifs sit atop nagging acidic basslines and space. Again, the remix follows the original and Tom Churchill dials the track down into chasm deep shuffling drums and basslines and dubbed out FX. It's hard to think of an EP where two artists can remix each others music in such a compelling way, and for it to work so well. This is truly an excellent release and it's a real pleasure to see these tracks back on the streets. Sublime, and essential.

'Spaces / Leisure' has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of Headspace Recordings for 2020 and remastered by London's Curve Pusher from the original sources especially for Mint Condition. 100% legit, licensed and released.

Well established and feverishly collected reissue stable Mint Condition turn their attention to turn-of-the-millennium star Affie Yusuf for their next highly anticipated installment. This London based tech-house don is responsible for crafting some mighty fine dancefloor moments, dating right back to 1993; but this EP, originally released on Surreal in 1999 is one surely one of his finest moments.

From the gilded, astral-projected opener, "Nice Dreams" which seems to hover just outside of Earth's orbit; to the urban sub-woofer pleasures of "Nightmares" and "Magnificent" that are both tailor made for warehouse business; it's a highly enjoyable and truly underground experience throughout.

Licensed reissue from the original tapes sounding as good if not better than the first time around with full involvement by artist and label. Winner.
