The package comes with five mixes to choose from

Drum Records release one more track before the Ibiza closing parties. It's the work of a newcomer to the label, CurlyJam, and comes with four remixes.

First up is the K&K Remix. K&K have been wowing the likes of Annie Mac and Sonny Fodera with their productions of late, and here they deliver a breakbeat mix which starts with snares and a kick, then brings in the hi-hat, some whoops and a one-note string line before building to the first break, where they add a bassline and a few other sound FX. And that's all you need to get a real rump-shaker of a tune!

Elsewhere, the I.N. Remix is pure techno with a pounding kickdrum, a tizzy hi-hat and a distinctly old school breakdown. The Matthias Leisegang Remix gives it a low-slung, funky tech feel, the Original Mix is a straight-up tech-houser with claps, a deep funky bassline, and lots of random percussion hits and sci-fi noises, and finally The Wolf Remix, which again strips the track back with a subtle bassline and a bleak futuristic feel – great for more laidback sets.

The label have really gone to town on this release, with an array of well thought-out mixes that tick many boxes if you like your music techy in nature. My favourites are the K & K Remix, as I'm a fan of breakbeat house, and the Original Mix, which for a newcomer shows great potential.
