There are only so many times you can listen to a re-edited track (on this occasion, eight) before you comprehensively accept, almost tinged with defeat, that it doesn’t really differ from the original whatsoever.
Tom Trago’s Use Me Again has been permeating dance floors for a while now, as well as ranking highly on many dj’s wish lists, so even with the arrival of Carl Craig’s prosaic interpretation of a solid original production, that demand will probably remain strong. Why? Well, because if you were approached to take part in the audio equivalent of the Pepsi Challenge, regardless of indulging in mind-altering substances or not, only the acutest of ears could tell the difference.
However there are two discernible, if not minor, shifts 1:30 and 4:30 minutes in, but nothing to really get excited about. Naturally this version will do nothing to tarnish Carl Craig’s credentials and Tom Trago’s craft, and rightly so, but that doesn’t elevate the feeling of overwhelming disappointment.
