Boomkat Product Review:
Roaming into view with their cow-bells exposed, the DFA lads are back with another compendium of remixes culled from their extensive catalogue - with 'Chapter Two' including work for Tiga, Junior Senior, UNKLE, Goldfrapp, Hot Chip and N.E.R.D. Whilst the first chapter had a clear lineage from their days producing the likes of Radio 4, this follow up sees James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy erring away from their regimented herks and jerks in favour of a looser sound that gives overt nods to Chic, Can and Talking Heads. Often sensing a core sound that you overlook on first listen, The DFA are bona fide masters at teasing threads from an original composition and running with it - a situation that becomes apparent on the opening 'Far From Home' by Tiga. Whilst the original was a high-camp disco monster that sauntered along with an electro wink, this version sees DFA morphing it into a synth addled epic that has an almost religious overtone in it's organ drone finale. Similarly, Goldfrapp's 'Slide In' is a morphed into a 13 minute marathon that sees Tim and James pulling out all the rhythmical stops with a mix that teases the luscious strings and swooping vocals of the chorus with a barrage of (you guessed it!) cow bells and liquid bass. Elsewhere, UNKLE's 'In A State' is given the bite it desperately needed first time round, Junior Senior's day-glo pop is re-established as taut post-punk, whilst Chromeo's 'Destination Overdrive' could have your eye out with its fizzing electro undertow.
