Boomkat Product Review:
Never knowingly understated, 'La Dame Blanche' stands out from the springy microhouse crowd by placing heavy emphasis on Phantom Of The Opera organ theatrics and spurts of sax that threaten to devour the whole track in an orgy of bad jazz. Thankfully, that threat is never fully realised, and all's well in the world. Next comes the 'Rocco Vision Mix' of 'Bora', a cocktail of relentless stabs and diced up french monolgue. It's all a bit Ministry Of Sound really, especially by the timethe big strings kick in at the end. Vastly more successful is the album mix of 'Belleville', a cascade of elemental, glassy melodies and discreet, clicky beats. The remix reinforces the beat and supplies some funk to the framework, though there's something perfectly pared down about the original mix that keeps it at the front of the pack.
