Ted Alexander has taken the step into producing, which has led to releases for the likes of Life & Death, Mood Music, and now Stem. This single opens with the original version of title track "XXX," a brooding, mood-driven cut, employing dark and eerie synth tones, shuffling drum programming, and dubbed out vocal lines. Visionquest's Ultrasone steps up to remix "XXX" next, reshaping things with a natural feel, achieved through stripped, organic percussion, warm piano tones and boomy sub-bass hits. On "Love Walls," Alexander drops the tempo slightly and opts for simplistic 4/4 drums, allowing the melodic elements to take control, as ethereal, atmospheric synths, gritty saw-wave bass hits and heavily-processed vocal snippets complement one another. Lastly, Philip Priebe reworks "Love Walls," again creating a brilliantly unique remix, keeping things understated and intelligently crafted with raw, acidic bass licks, classic 909 drums, dreamy pads and jazzy pianos.
