25th anniversary album re issue remixed. "It's like catching up to a friend, and it's weird looking back on something you created so long ago", Chicane says. Seminal to it's core, 'Far From The Maddening Crowds' covered a broad landscape of club hits and ambient allure, of night-time sensation and Balearic beauty. Reassessing an album can be daunting when such an album is replete with influential trance tracks and sunset favourites. "It's mainly because music evolves, like our memories evolve alongside. I was very aware that touching this album, re-recording and reworking it, was going to be tricky. I didn't want to take anything away or add anything unnecessarily into the mix. But all things considered, revisiting my debut album was something I couldn't not do. I had learned so much over the twenty odd years and I had a recall of the Balearic sound seasoned with time and love." And so it began: evolution in it's purest form. Looking back to the year 1997, for a moment, the world of dance music was Ibiza, and Chicane lent a hand with a collection of anthems befitting each moment and each mood, from the beach to the clubs. And now, the British producer returns to the point where it all began for himself and countless of his fans.
