This review is from: DJ Kicks - Kruder & Dorfmeister (Audio CD)
A class album in both its production and its selection of mixes, "DJ Kicks" shows just how good electronica, drum & bass... whatever you want to call it... can be made to be in skilled hands. Incredibly effective in its sequencing of the complex, multi-layered instrumental & vocal loops that drive most of the selected tracks, and underpinned by some wonderfully deep bass hooks and lock-tight percussion overlays, Kruder & Dorfmeister craft a kaleidoscopic musical journey that just gets better & better with repeat playing. These guys know how to generate "atmosphere" but in the case of "DJ Kicks" they also create something that builds through tracks 1 to 13 into something genuinely "exciting". By track 3 the urge to dance has become irresistible and after a short respite to catch your breath at the start of track 8 we're off again for a further 25 minutes of super-cool club grooves, leaving the more erratic last four tracks as a slight let down, but only because you just want it to keep on going... higher & higher. Time to hit the replay button.
