Album Review: Light Sound Dance - The Bang Gang Deejays

BlackPlastic heart Modular and has meant to give some love to Light Sound Dance, mixed by their resident party crew Bang Gang, for pure time. Music may change but good taste remains constant.

We'll be brief: Light Sound Dance (see what they did there? No? Nevermind...) contains almost every track that has filled a dancefloor in the past 18 months.

The beauty is in having them all in one place and as such you can find SebAstian's destruction of The Rapture's 'Get Myself Into It' doing the bad thing all over Punks Jump Up's 'Beep Beep', the Nite Version of Soulwax's 'KracK', Mehdi's ubiquitous 'Signatune' and two remixed Klaxons tracks.

But what this mix is two things:

1. The less obvious choices. Plan B's 'More Than Enough' fits in very nicely, thank you, and it is fantastic to hear Modular label mates The Avalanches again in any form. Hear we get them twice, once with their bells, whistles and kitchen sink remix of Wolfmother's 'Woman' and once on the forever gorgeous and pulse quickening 'Live At The Dominoes'.

2. The somewhat rustic, cut and paste, come and have a go if you think you're hard enough approach. This mix is one of those that genuinely sounds like a ball was had whilst it was made. Light Sound Dance sounds like a good friend playing all your favourite records at once. It's not as defining an Album as As Heard On Radio Soulwax Part 2 but, with 70 songs across two CDs, it just might be the closest anyone has come to that feeling since.

See you on the dancefloor.
