The Hundred in the Hands chose remixers who have been inspiring them, the band says: "We were listening to Andy Stott's "Passed Me By" and "We Stay Together" EP's a lot as we started the record. So many good ideas and textures, with low end in the extreme that kind of rattled our minds a bit. When it came to looking for people to remix, he was first on the list. The legendary Optimo duo have been such an influence on so many artists in recent years, and in maybe too many cases we end up liking their versions a bit more than the originals. We just had to ask. JD Twitch turned in two versions, each unique and equally epic. We couldn't make up our minds so, we stuck them both on. We'd been hearing bits from Patten and got excited. It's hallucinatory, uneasy and fractured. Pretty much everything we like. "Mountains" was a track that was written totally in the flow of the album but still just couldn't fit in, it just wouldn't play nice with the other tracks and just became its own beast of a thing. This seemed like the best place to let it out."
