Death In Vegas - Dead Elvis - Cd
A milestone in the evolution of British big beat, Dead Elvis shunned the speed, cocaine and amyl nitrate-inspired sounds of its peers for music that suggested the effects of opium or barbiturates. Not that there's anything sluggish about it; rather, it's heavy-lidded and dosed with dub for a profoundly narcotic effect. It's hard to pick stand-outs from a record of such overall high quality, but "Dirt", with its abrasive guitars smeared across a juddering bassline and a bowel-quake of a drumbeat, is truly a thing deserving of awe. "GBH" also does a fair job of living up to its title, in a lively two-step kind of way; and the overtly psychedelic "Rekkit" and "Rocco" probably sound just as good, and much the same, played backwards. --David Bennun

Unlike many artist of this genre Death in Vegas' music is intelligent, involving, and evolving. I saw them support the Chemicals years ago and if I'm being honest they weren't all that. The sound was too big for a support act and no one in the audience really got it. A lack of facilities (two turntables') and dodgy bowl cuts really clouded what they were trying to do.
A few years later I saw them again. This time they were headlining and were awesome. A well-informed friend of mine still claims they sounded better than the Prodigy on their Jilted tour (completely different I know but I'm sure you catch my drift).
The point is, these guys aren't just electronic maestros. They create well structured, deep, tunes, that require input from many talented musicians, that work live, that can be listened to by almost anyone, and even make you want to boogie.
Dead Elvis is my favourite Death in Vegas album for one very simple reason. It's all them. No star struck collaboration can undermine who and what this album is about. This is Death in Vegas. Although 'all that glitters is not gold' ... this album glitters and it's certainly golden.
The mainstay of Dead Elvis is mellow, funky, beats-driven dance music, but within that there's a huge amount of variety. Across these eleven tracks, Death in Vegas have tried their hand at (at least) eleven different styles, and pulled them all off without ever sounding like they're faking it. There's a distinct jazz and reggae influence on the first few tracks, followed by Dirt, a stomping rock number, leading eventually to the floaty ambience of the last few songs.
Every tune surprises you by being different to the one before it, but just as great.
One of the most varied and accomplished albums you'll hear.
