The first single from Speedy J's defiant 1997 LP, Public Energy No. 1, "Patterns" relents a bit on the DJ front, combining the album version (itself one of the few mixable tracks on the album) with a four-on-the-floor non-album track ("Punnik") bound to get the less adventurous techno DJs back on Jochem Paap's side. It's a competent track, certainly, but following the head-tweak of the album, the remix seems yawningly ordinary. The import version of "Patterns" was paired with a bonus etched 12-inch containing an additional (this time extremely whacked) mix of the track. The latter makes the double-pack very much worth the investment.
