The Chemical Brothers feat. The Flaming Lips – The Golden Path (Ewan’s Rave Hell Dub)

After unpacking my records from a recent house move, I rediscovered this absolute belter of a record. Somehow I’d managed to completely forget about it, and finding it again is one of the best things to come out of moving house so far.

The original version is one of the Chemical Brothers’ better moments, but as it was done in collaboration with The Flaming Lips that shouldn’t come as a surprise. As was standard practice for him back in 2004, Ewan Pearson churned out 2 killer remixes and in doing so turned a pleasant poppy dance record into absolute dancefloor dynamite.

It’s the dub version which does it for me – it has a killer bass line, bleeps galore and some trancy sections that bring back good memories of rushing hard. It’s definitely going to be in the bag for our next party on 10th March, and I’ll be very surprised if it doesn’t get an airing.
