Pushing acceptable boundaries of what it means to be a "remix" album, the nine-track Still Life in Motion offers no less than five tracks lifted wholesale from BT's previous full-length, Movement in Still Life. Still, it's a good look at the most restless producer in the electronica world, quickly moving from post-millennial pop -- the opener "Shame," with a great hook but a few too many sops to mainstream production -- all the way to tech-house and nu-breaks, for "Madskillz-Mic Checka" (with Adam Freeland and Beber) and a new Plump DJs remix of his own "Smartbomb." Also exclusive are a pair of "Shame" remixes (a streamlined trance version by Way Out West and Bent's down tempo dub), plus Steve Lawler's mix of "Never Gonna Come Back Down."
