|1.||"Leisure Suit Preben" (I Cube remix)|
|1.||"Preben Goes To Acapulco" (Prins Thomas remix)|
In some ways, the "Preben" suite of tracks from Terje's It's Album Time LP is a strange choice for remixing. That said, the two original tracks both featured plenty of live instrumentation and spiraling synth solos amongst their nu disco-meets-easy listening and library jazz-funk grooves, making them attractive to remixers. As a result, these two reworks are unsurprisingly different to the source material. Parisian veteran I:Cube does a superb job on "Leisure Suit Preben", turning the tongue-in-cheek original into a string-drenched chunk of immersive Balearic house. Terje's old pal Prins Thomas sticks closer to the original vibe of "Preben Goes To Acapulco", turning in a breezy chunk of Arp-laden jazz-funk blessed with his usual organic, bass-heavy grooves.
