comment
raise the pressure may have taken two years to write and record but by the time it was finished electronic had a 60-minute album plus five excellent b-sides, the last of which, turning point, appeared on the third single to be lifted from the album. the inclusion of the rampling/lorimer remix of feel every beat on cd 1 is commendable, but their dub mix of the ’91 classic should have been featured instead, as it’s never been released on cd. trance atlantic dub and an unedited version of the plastik mix had been issued the previous october on an epic 57-minute promo in the usa, which also featured four exclusive mixes next to two additional radio edits. it’s probably the single most rare electronic item. second nature reached a modest 35 in the uk, promoted by appearances on later and tfi friday; it was the only electronic single not to be accompanied by a video.
