One of the best recent grooves we've heard from Kraftwerk – a snapping little number that really takes us back to the Tour De France days! As usual, the group handles their sound the best – and our favorite here is probably the "Kling Klang Dynamix" – although we can say that Francois K puts in some nicely spare beats that groove things up, while still keeping the feel of the original! CD
A long-overdue introduction of Brooklyn singer Stephanie McKay to the US market – especially given that her debut album was issued in the UK a few years ago! This 5 track EP is a bit of a teaser to Stephanie's projected full length US set – and it features 3 new tracks that are all totally great, plus 2 more numbers from her 2003 release on Go Beat in the UK. As before, the sound is proud, loud, and plenty soulful – nicely chunky contemporary work that steers itself away from mainstream cliche, with shared writing credits from Thaddeus Smith III (aka Pismo) on all the new tracks. Titles include "Tell It Like It Is", "Money", "Tell It Like It Is (DJ Spinna rmx)", "Rising Tide", and "Take Me Over". CD
An excellent collection of house tracks – old and new – selected and blended by Dimitri From Paris! The overall theme is an imaginary party at the Playboy Mansion – but from our personal experience, we can tell you that this set kicks a lot harder than the dancefloor at Hef's pad ever did! Dimitri takes off from the current ecstatic energy of the Parisian house scene, and the package is a totally stormin mix of 14 tracks that are all uptempo, all soulful, and all filled with the kind of hooks that will keep you on the floor all night long. Tracks include "Found A Cue" by Ashford & Simpson, "I'll Be There For You" by Sunburst Band, "Sweet Music" by Terry Hunter, "Motivation" by Atmosfear, "Outro Lugar" by Salome De Bahia, "Talking All That Jazz (Torti's old school mix)" by Stetsasonic, "Down To Love Town" by The Originals, "The Groove" by Astrojazz, "Reach Inside" by Bah Samba, "Wonderful Person" by Black Masses, and "Give Me Love" by Cerrone. CD
Eno's last real "rock" album – and one of the best of the bunch! The album follows the style of some of the work that Eno was doing with Bowie – in that it's got some tracks that really rock out, in kind of a sci-fi, late 70s way – and other tracks that are much mellower and electronic. Includes the brilliant "Through Hollow Lands", the eerie "Kurts Rejoinder", the skittish and catchy "King's Lead Hat", and the tunes "No One Receiving", "Backwater", "Here He Comes", and "Energy Fools The Magician".
