Let me map out these songs for those of you wondering what this single EP offers compared to the versions on the full album "Far From The Maddening Crowds" (hereafter called "FFTMC"):
The first track "Disco Citizens Radio Edit" is a radio length version of track 6 [Sunstroke (Disco Citizens)] from "FFTMC", but without some of the sounds and effects that come in its longer version on that album. That version of which I speak is also track 3 of this single. This is a great track that was literally the building block from which the album cut was made and from which track 3 of this single were made. This is a fitting radio edit.
The second track on this single is a Radio Edit of the slower version of the song on Track 9 of the full-length album "FFTMC", which is considered the "original" version of the song. It's quite literally an abridged version of that track, nothing less and nothing more. This is also a good radio edit but of course the longer album versions of any of these tracks are superior.
Track 3, called "Disco Citizen (On The Train Remix)" on this single is the exact same as Track 6 from "FFTMC". The reason it's referred to as simply [Sunstroke (Disco Citizens)] on that album is because it really is the only remix of the song by Disco Citizens if you consider that the only other Disco Citizens remix on this album is simply a "Radio Edit" version of this one.
Are you still with me? Good. The payoff is coming.
Track 4 of this album is the same as Track 9 from "FFTMC" and is considered the "Original" version. In other words, tracks 1 and 3 on this album, and Track 6 of "FFTMC" are and always have been considered Disco Citizen up-beat dance edits to this version which is much more ambient and down tempo. The fact that the Disco Citizens remix appears before the original mix on the full album has probably mystified most listeners, but it can be agreed that taken as a whole the album flows better that way.
And now, for the reason you WANT this album:
Track 5, called "White Mix" is not a Radio Edit of Sunstroke or a Disco Citizens remix of Sunstroke. It is a SUPERB re-imagining of the Original Version by Chicane that you haven't heard anywhere else on any other single or album. It's a dreamier, much livelier Drum'n'Bass (jungle) version of the Original Version (Track 4 above or 9 on FFTMC) that must've been a really hard choice to not use as the album original version. It takes that arpeggiated synth you hear that starts at the beginning of the Original and slows it way down and then speeds the percussion up to get that Jungle bass feel going. Think Chicane vs. LTJ Bukem. It's not better, just different. When you hear it, much Ibizan bliss will ensue.
This album is a must have for Chicane fanatics, both because it fits in any serious Chicane collection and because of the exclusivity of the White Mix. The Radio Edits are nice, but simply short versions of the album length versions that you may or may not use for your own mix CD's or compilations to spin at a party or dance.
