Here is what I wrote on Discogs. Maybe I should revise my review and post it in the reviews section?

referencing Let There Be Light (12", 33 ⅓ RPM, EP) SUNCDEP02

Really excellent sound on this 12". Good mastering and pressing.

Astral Projection's remix of Filteria's "Filtertraces" sounds so classically AP that Filteria seems neither here nor there - a very sweet epic track that hovers on the edge of the saccharine towards the end, but in the right mood is a bomb. The masters of melody do not fail to deliver.

Filteria returns the favour with a remix of "Let There be Light": this is altogether tougher and faster with the bigger bass of nu skool Goa. The lead melody is perhaps a bit forward in the mix, making it strident - this spoils part of this remix, which I can't fully rate.

The Morphic Resonance remix of AP's "Enlightened Evolution" doesn't have shrill leads or cheesy modulations, but it can't really be said to add much, if anything, to the original, which I prefer. Two not such great remixes from the nu skool guys. I notice that neither of them has the perfect sound that Astral manage; their production is just not as subtle.

Then it is the turn of Astral to remix their own track "Another World" from the album of that name. Ahhh, sweet bliss. This is almost indescribably awesome: pure spirituality in aural form. I felt my body dissolving into a sea of pulsating pixels to this track. For me "Dancing Galaxy" and "Another World" are their best albums, and that this track seems to attain another level of beauty in this remix seems miraculous to me. Wow!

I'm afraid I have no choice but to conclude that the old school masters showed these Johnny come latelies a thing or two. Two great remixes from AP, forget about the other two. ~*~

Sweet! Would you mind adding it to the review section? And I'll add my fifty cents to that thread as well. Oh and my error, it wasn't just two tracks on this EP as I erroneously stated. :) My bad!

Btw on a sidenote, this remixing one of their all-time classics by AP (Another World), begs the question: wouldn't it be nice if they did an entire re-interpretation of their classic albums Dancing Galaxy and Another World? Much in the same way as other artists have made a pt2 of their most beloved albums. I know for sure that I would love to hear that.

It would make sense, considering how well-received AP's remixes of classics from other artists was some time ago on the album Goa Classics Remixed.
