FROM THE MUTATE RECORDS WEBSITE
Part two of Unique 3's 'Take This Love' is the closely related sequel to the critically acclaimed 'Take This Love', which is riding high as IDJ Breaks 'Top Tune' of the month...
The Black Art Mixes are a selection of lost or misplaced remixes found down the back of the studio sofa, stuck in car cd players or simply mistakenly overseen amongst the massive stack of demo's that sits in the Mutate HQ.

I gather that the artwork has led to a ban at some e-tailers - how ridiculous / hilarious - but you can still get it here:
