Hot Chip - Dj Kicks

DJ Kicks The enormously successful electropop stylings of Hot Chip have found them in constant demand ever since the release of their hit album "The Warning "a couple of years back. Now they've been recruited by the !K7 crew for the latest instalment of their DJ-Kicks series, a mix that kicks off with the slinky melodies of Grovesnor's 'Nitemoves' shifting unapologetically into Positive K's 'I Got A Man'. The narrative flow of the mix continues to refuse any impulse to settle down into a particular genre, skipping briskly through tracks by Subway, Soundhack and Tom Ze before channeling into a full track in the form of Hot Chip's own 'My Piano', a track exclusive to this compilation. Of course, that account hardly does the production justice, which really comes into its own in its final passages, populated with zippy synth lines and heavily compressed stabs. The next phase of the mix takes in New Order, Etta James, Black Devil Disco Club and Dominik Eulberg before winding down (albeit for 20 seconds) with This Heat. The final furlong is far more coherent as a club-friendly sequence, taking in Wookie, Gabriel Ananda, Marek Bois, Audion and Joe Jackson's 'Steppin' Out'. Finally, Ray Charles. 'Mess Around' brings the disc to a close. By no means a coherent compilation, Hot Chip's DJ-Kicks revels in its unwillingness to be pinned down and is all the better for it. in boomkat [Para Ouvir]

para mim dos Dj Kicks mais fraquinhos , também a série não tem primado muito pela qualidade.
