4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly retro (for 17 tracks), 7 Jan 2006

This review is from: FABRICLIVE 09: Jacques Lu Cont (Audio CD)
Anyone who knows a little of the life of Stuart Price won't have been expecing a release simply intended to pass quietly into Fabric's back catalogue. Price always manages to pull of something at least notable, at most stunningly clever. And so it is here: The mix from the excellent Royksopp 'Remind Me' remix into Strauss's ASZ (is it just me or does anyone else detract a sense of glee when DJs acknowledge the original music masters?) and then into Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams, is teriffic.
In fact the majority of this set is top draw, with the Royksopp edit and Crazy P***s's Give it Up the picks, whilst the remix of Steve Miller Band's 'Abracadabra' is the pic of the frequent retro scatterings.
The ending, though, is a shame. What some may praise as diversity is out of place and unwelcome, and an attempt to cram as many styles into this (1-CD) set as possible. Moreover, although I'm no musical pigeon-holer - I collect everything from Russian master Dmitry Shostakovich to prog house maestro Anthony Pappa - I'm not into punk/indie/rock, so its arrival at the end of a disco/electro release was disappointing. A top CD, but it ends at track 17 for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure electro funk, 8 May 2003
This review is from: FABRICLIVE 09: Jacques Lu Cont (Audio CD)
Wow! the first time i played this mix i listened to the whole CD in one go, usually i get bored with tracks and start to flick through them but with this i couldnt help but listen to the lot!
The 80's presence is obvious but in a very cool funky way, Lu cont got it just right and tracks such as Seppin', Aracdabera and Wordy Rapinghood to name but a few.
Overall, a rollercoaster of up and down funk with catchy melodies thats just soo danceable!

4.0 out of 5 stars digital fun, 14 April 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: FABRICLIVE 09: Jacques Lu Cont (Audio CD)
The 80's influenece is clear on this mix as Jacques Lu Cont takes from tracks by Devo, the Eurythmics and 'Abracadabra' by the Steve Millar Band, and believe it or not The Pixies!!! Although this is not as seemless as you might expect from such a talented guy, it is at times compelling listening, with kilos of funk, melody and emotion. Lu Cont fans will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars slightly twisted electro genius, 4 April 2003

A worthy continuation of the excellent Fabric/FABRICLIVE cd series, number 9 comes courtesy of Jacques Lu Cont, the non-French mainstay of Les Rhythmes Digitales. With his consistent love for the glitzy, sleazy electro sound in full effect here the eclectic nature of this accomplished mix covers everything from medicine8's excellent remix of gus gus' david to the classic eurythmics anthem sweet dreams. Well worth a listen to anyone who likes their basslines fat and their synthesisers turned up to 11.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best mix I ever heard, 30 April 2005

Stuart Price aka Jacques Lu Cont extends his midas touch to the excellent Fabric mix series with a superb compilation of thumping house and electro. The man is an extremely talented producer and musician in his own right and this CD gives the listener an idea of what to expect from him in a live DJ set. His taste in music is impeccable and the mix switches from house to 80's pop to techno to rock effortlessly with manic energy. Nearly every single track is a little gem with a couple of his own remixes/productions thrown in for good measure. Brilliant stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic, 6 April 2003

This review is from: FABRICLIVE 09: Jacques Lu Cont (Audio CD)
What can I say, Jacques Lu Cont comes up with a quality mix again. As you would expect it is heavily influenced by electro, but with the bouncy dance feel of this century. There are a few tunes on here you wouldn't expect from on your usual mix album - Steve Miller Band's "Abracadabra", Eurythmics's "Sweet Dreams" and bizarrely The Pixies "Gouge Away" - but it works! Buy this and you will have the soundtrack to some great summer parties.

4.0 out of 5 stars funky chunky twisted electro funk punk house, 3 April 2003

This review is from: FABRICLIVE 09: Jacques Lu Cont (Audio CD)
Jacques Lu Cont, the foreign sounding lad from Reading likes his cool sounding bleepy, trippy, techy sounds. This CD, his first for the Fabric series kicks off with his own (briliant) remix of the Mirwais track, 'Miss You' and mixes smoothly to many other great tracks such as Supreme Bachelors 'Eurolove', Zoot Woman 'It's Automatic' and ending beautifully with Brain Eno's 'Here Come The Warm Jets'. Great album, go get it.
