Originally released in 1989, "The Chase" has long been one of the most in-demand Motor City techno classics. This desirable reissue includes all four mixes from the original 12", beginning with Juan Atkins' superb take - a rich, tuneful treat that cleverly combines trademark Motor City percussion with a string of contrasting - but complimentary - melody lines. Derrick May's rework still sounds intoxicating and addictive, benefitting from the great man's decision to emphasize the original's spacey melodies and a tougher, more percussively intense groove. Also worth checking is The Smooth Mix, whose sparkling melodies and springy bass work help create a surprisingly Balearic mood.
