Product Description

BBC Review

Launched in 1995 by the influential German !K7 label, DJ-Kicks' ethos was "to supply mixes designed for home stereo use as well as for the dancefloor." Mixmag even went as far as proclaiming the imprint that has subsequently released sets by Carl Craig, Smith & Mighty, Tiga and CJ Bolland, as "the most important DJ-mix series ever"; high praise indeed in this overly saturated compilation market.

Chicken Lips are the latest deemed most worthy to follow in the wake of such esteemed music visionaries with their equally abstract mishmash of influential sounds and styles. At its best they uncover many near-forgotten memories from days of yore. At the other end of the spectrum there are times when there's a race to find the remote to skip to the next track - the yodelling "African Reggae" by punk high priestess Nina Hagen too horrid for words.

But the minuses are outweighed in the main by a style that boarders on dubbed-out abstract New York disco made famous by the likes of such influential deck generals as Francois Kevorkian and Larry Levan in the early '80s. Lola's kitsch "Wax The Van", Gwen Guthrie's Sly & Robbie-produced sparse smooth disco (recreated by Levan) on "Seventh Heaven" and the Paul Simpson Connection's experimental house offering "Treat Me", just three rarely-compiled groundbreaking releases.

Indeed, many of the 21-tracks featured helped to fuel Manhattan's burgeoning dance scene in the era. From the funk of Jellybean's Fun House classic, "The Bubble Bunch" by the eccentric Jimmy Spicer, to the hi-nrg of Sharon Redd's seminal recording high, "Beat The Street".

Andy Meecham, Dean Meredith and Steve Kotey, the trio who make up Chicken Lips, may now be influencing the next generation of breakbeat producers, but their roots are clear for all to see. And, whilst perhaps a little too esoteric for mainstream tastes, this will nonetheless help keep the DJ-Kicks brand at the forefront of its market. --Jack Smith

5.0 out of 5 stars Its decent 9 Feb 2004
By Joe Schulte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The CD is well done. The track selection is great, the mixing from "Lola" to "The Congos" is probably the best mix of two records I've heard in a while. The cd starts off pretty good, gets really good at about track five and then by the last song all you can do is start over again. This cd stayed in my stereo for almost 2 weeks straight and I still love it. I have the double 150th !K7 release, DJ Kicks- Kruder and Dorfmeister and Tiga and Chicken Lips is definitely my favorite !K7 release I have heard so far. Good Tracks- Good Mixing- Good Times.

2.0 out of 5 stars What happened to DJ Kicks? 16 July 2005
By jazz freak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hard to believe this is in the same series as Rockers, K&D, Kid Loco, Cam...maybe all these DJ's (Playgroup, Chicken Lips etc.) peddling this 80's crap think this is cool but for those of us old enough to remember, the music from that decade was mostly horrifying. All you people with your new wave hairdos go get a haircut.

1.0 out of 5 stars Banal rubbish 17 Nov 2003
By Skallywag - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Most of these songs were dug out of the archives and thats where they should have remained. This really does not work musically or as a concept for the 70's/80's sound. There are about three very good songs on this but the rest are bad and then even worse rubbish. These songs should have been torched and destroyed (back in the 70/80's) as they are just plain and simply brutal.
