Brilliant new take on mix album
on 10 May 2004
Having bought and loved some of the previous offerings in the DJ Kicks series and being a big fan of Erlend Oye and Kings of Conveinence, I was expecting some downbeat electronica in the style of KOC's Versus album. Instead, we get a mixed bag of Electro, Deep House and more eclectic styles with Erlend Oye crooning a cappella vocals on top of them. It may sound incongruous and slightly odd but it works really well and is one of the contenders for album of the year. The choice of songs and vocals works really well and for somebody who confesses that he can't mix, he does a pretty good job.
If you like you music to be a little different from the norm and are a fan of any of his previous stuff, I would definitely recommend it.
