There is a minor difference in the Zoohacker remix that was released first at CLS and the one that ended up on the official Malmö CD. It's just a difference in the guitar strum at 0:05 and 1:23.
To find a difference this miniscule, you got to have a perfect hearing like Lior, thanks and very well spotted!
