Product Description

Amazon.ca

En deux CD, l'épatant duo nordique Freestylers livre la quintessence de son art. Épaulé par une impressionnante brochette de stars issue de tous les milieux (le jazzman Herbie Hancock qui a fricoté avec Material sur le tubesque "Rock It", le pionnier du hip-hop Afrika Bambaataa, le défricheur de la techno Cybotron alias Juan Atkins et d'autres, moins connus, comme Rockers Revenge et Curtis Mantronik), Freestylers pond ce qui pourrait avoir des allures de manifeste prêchant pour le rapprochement des genres, funk et musiques électroniques notamment. Le second CD compile des "extended versions" qui prennent le temps de faire monter la sauce et laissent chancelant. Comme titrait un vieux LP de kraut-rock signé Amon Düül dans les 70's : "Vive La Trance!" --Hervé Comte

Format: Audio CD
Artists have always tried to capitalize on the popularity of "retro" or "throwback" melodies in modern works, hoping to cash in on the nostalgia, campiness, or similar incentives. What they often lack is an actual appreciation and command of the musical style, and end up sounding like remixing hacks.
The Freestylers (or if you prefer, Cut & Paste) are not such hacks. Climb in the the "way way back machine", kid, this is a trip to the past with the edge of today's DJ skills.
The blend of beats and melodies on this particular "old school" compilation is similar to that Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) and the like coming out of the UK en force, but the Freestylers seem to wrap it all in a tone of pure enjoyment and good spirits, never trying to prove they have the most eccelctic tastes, but rather trying to put together a series of memorable (and sometimes overlooked) classic breakbeat, hiphop, funk and urban beats of the past, as well as a few contemporary pieces that carry on the traditions laid down in the era of "Beat Street" and "Breakin'".
So strap on the fat laces and work on your windmill technique - it's deja vu all over again.

when i first heard this cd, i didn't know what it was... it was unmarked. by the time i got to tracks 8 and 9 i was goin' nuts. it took me back to the breakdance era, when i was in second grade, which is the last time i heard those particular tracks. if you're into breaks, hip hop, electro -- GET THIS. i'm trying to find it on LP right now -- as well as listening to it at the moment.
