Boomkat Product Review:
The self confessed "only successful Arab/Jew partnership since the dawn of time" aka Chromeo are given the keys to cruise through the first new DJ-Kicks mix in over 2 years. It's an absolute treat for all the disco afficionados, dropping with dangerously trendy timing in the midst of a glitterball renaissance and packed out with rare and killer cuts to grease even the rustiest hips. In keeping with tradition, the pair provide an exclusive track for the mix, covering The Eagles' 'I Can't Tell You Why' with typically slick results, but the highlights have to be Kano's 'Ikeya-Seki', the rockin' Linn drums of Donna Allen's 'Serious', Chateau Marmont's opulent Italo-electro greaser 'Solar Antapex', deadly dance-pop from Val Young, NRG-Italo from Lifelike, cool-out disco soul from Leo Sayer 'Easy To Love', and a final touch of overpowering sax smut from Alan Parsons project on 'Pipeline'. Horny!
