Synopsis

Amazon.com
On this installation of Studio K7's X-Mix series, England's top techno DJ Dave Clarke reveals his naughty little secret: he's a massive fan of Electro, the early-'80s hybrid of hip-hop and European electronic music that predated (and strongly influenced) Detroit techno. On Electro Boogie he offers a short course in this music's history, mixing up the old, the new, and everything in between. Definitive classics like Model 500's "Future" and Channel One's "Technicolor" bump up against modern interpretations of the genre like Underground Resistance's "Electronic Warfare" and I-F's "I Do Because I Couldn't Care Less." In true hip-hop fashion, the mix is fast and furious, with enough jump-cuts and scratching to keep the sounds fresh throughout. In addition to being an excellent introduction to the past, present, and future of electro, Electro Boogie is also the only place to find material from uncompromising underground artists such as Dopplereffekt and AUX 88 in CD form. This is essential listening for anyone looking to bridge the gap between hip- hop's urban sensibilities and techno's synthetic futurism. --Matthew Corwine

CD Reviews

Great stuff from dave clarke.
jonny | Edinburgh Scotland | 12/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This mix is truly representative of the electro sound, with cuts coming from various times and places. Its nice to hear a mix cd with a bit of thought behind it- not just your standard techno mix but a surging cut up of electro grooves- some are dark, some are funky, all are truly pounding tracks that will incite the irrepressable urge to boogie... Anyone into this stuff would be a fool not to purchase this cd - if you have heard the excellent Aux 88 volume of this series I can say that this is even better, more varied and full of energy."

"This mix is wicked. If you've ever seen Dave Clarke spin, you know he never fails to deliver. It's got the bounce to make you move, moments of humour to make you giggle and shake your head, and then the moments of pure darkness that make you think you might be better off if the person closest to you in life were dead. Buy this now and you will see!"
