Back to 1996, Charles Webster's cult Remote label, one of a handful of Presence releases produced by Webster himself and a whole galaxy of deepness. This is what you currently hold in your hands right now, a 4 tracker that crosses various sonic terrains with ease that still works in the club. 'The Strength' is the title cut, here in 2 variations with the first version imbuing almost highlife-like qualities in it's melodies and construction. Minor chords, intricate drum programming and cabinet rattling basslines create a very special atmosphere, with the 2nd mix being a somewhat stripped back cousin of the first. Pure brilliance. The B-side contains 2 different mixes of 'Gettin Lifted', possibly the real showstopper here, another sleek late-night cruiser of a track that seems to be speeding towards an invisible horizon at 200mph.... this is it. The 2nd mix features some of the most spaced out house sounds ever committed to wax. Absolutely, a must have all around.
