ART OF NOISE
THE DRUM AND BASS COLLECTION
China (11tks/73 mins)
ART Of Noise’s brilliant “Close (To The Edit)” single way back when —
A remix album with some top drum’n’bassers like Lemon D, J Majik, PFM and Aquasky overhauling some of their back catalogue is a respect thing for the pioneering, faceless ZTT weirdness (although wasn’t Trevor Horn involved?) which predated electro, techno and ambient house, too (yawn). Cool stuff on it, as it goes, with none of it bearing much trace of the originals.
Tom-boy Jones is absent on “Kiss”, so you have to do his jumper-in-a-washing machine dance yourself. La-la.
