Boomkat Product Review:
Jeeez, what a blast from the past. Almost forgotten about this one: Cassius’ once-ubiquitous debut album of french touch disco comes around again for an 18th anniversary reissue, the first time it’s been available on any format since the original pressing in 1999!
We clearly remember the days when Cassius 1999 was in heavy rotation on MTV2 (when they actually played music!?) and the total ear worm Feeling For You was in equally heavy rotation at my mate Greg’s house, in between tea with camel milk and supposed GCSE revision.
Coming back to it all these years later, it’s pretty mad how things either haven’t changed, or have come full circle again, with this kind of filtered boogie loops and stylish, up-for-it house back in vogue (if it ever really went away in most cities?).
Still a dope record.
