A remix album is not a really interesting affair most of the time, but Iíve been proven wrong by some releases in the past and this one is no exception. Alien vs. The Cat is a collaboration between long time psytrance artists Space Cat (Avi Elgranati) and Alien Project (Ari Linker).They first released their album: Space Jam on TIP World back in 2004. Then in 2006 there was the second release Hear the Noise on Spun Records. And now, on H2O Records, come the remixes. So, what is this all about? Well, full on with an overall pretty happy uplifting vibe. This immediately comes into play with the first track. Quadra gives a trancier feel to Hear the Noise. The vocoder sample couldíve been used a little less in my opinion and in that aspect the original is better. But, the Quadra remix sounds OK enough. GMS make Shokata a little more punchy. As is common on more remix albums, the artist or artists themselves also make remixes. This is the case here also, when Tracks 3, 7 & 8 get the remix treatment from Alien Project and Space Cat themselves. Those three tracks sound more up to date with todayís standards, other than that thereís no real difference between them and the original tracks. The Race sounds a lot tighter and massive after Hujaboy was done with it. Good Vibes go a long way with Intersys, who manages to make the remix even happier than the original. The Purist gets the remix treatment from Lifestyle, which makes it about the same, but with more punch. A great track for the dancefloor. GMS does a nice job with Space Jam, making it sound more GMS like. The bonus track delivers a new solo track from Space Cat, which manages to sound quite happy and actually it could make a progressive track if you slowed it down enough. Pretty good. The artwork deserves a mention for its straightforwardness. Itís wood. A big clear font to read everything, basic stuff, but it looks tight and it gets the job done. Much like this album.

Recomendation:  The best thing about this is the happy uplifting vibes. Itís not exactly the most original production that youíll ever hear, but the crisp mastering and the real party atmosphere that come forth from this album will make a lot of people happy. Most of these tracks will probably be played at festivals all over the place in the coming months, so if youíd like to listen them at home, nowís your chance.
