"The Mighty Bop, along with DJCam, Dimitri, Kid loco, St.Germain, and others have put Paris on the musical map. The Mighty Bop is one good reason that they're making great music, using turntable and samples to constuct clever and interesting music. The two releases that are available in america, La vague sensorielle,and autres voix autres blues are fine examples of why this music has a following has well has detractors. These two gems are overlooked for what so many "mainstream" hip-hop acts seriously lack, a well schooled and competent dj. Though most of the vocals on Autre Voix Autre Blues are in French, this shouldn't detract from what I feel is great music being made in obscurity in a country and culture as complex as any.La vague sensorielle is more the "abstract" side of the Mighty Bop and features "la funk mob" with DJPhuck. It is the first release under this name and it has all the elements of hip-hop with what is being called "abstract" elements thrown in throughout the cd. However it doesn't wind up being just for show as these musicans along with DJCam continue to create and define the hip-hop genre in their own way, the French way I suppose? I don't know what that is but if you can still find the Mighty Bop you'll hear what I mean."
