    5. Nouar - Cheikha Rimitti [1 CD, Amazon US]
      The original queen of Algerian rai music is also one of the great survivors in all of Afropop, still on stage and in the studio in her 70s.
      By the 1930s, the Berber, Bedouin and Andalusian elements that would ultimately lead to rai music had coalesced in a style called wahrani. Wahrani was championed by cheikhas--female singers--in the bars of Algeria's "Little Paris," the coastal city of Oran. Cheikhas voiced the complaints of working class people in French colonial Algeria, upsetting officials. They also sang openly about sex, upsetting conservative mujahedin rebels.
      Today, though over 75 years old, Rimitti continues to record.

      This is a great compilation of rare tracks that have been sampled by the great and not so great (Moby, Fatboy Slim, Robbie Williams, LL Cool J, Gang Starr, Massive Attack - who get 2 (1) entries!), from old-skool disco (Musique, Carol Williams, Creative Source), reggae (the Prodigy-sampled Max Romeo's Chase the Devil), blaxploitation-style jazz and funk (Lonnie Liston Smith, Young Holt Unlimited, Herbie Hancock, Marlena Shaw) , to cheesy 50's songs (Patti Page)!
      Loads of snippets these songs have turned up on dance, pop, and hip-hop tracks...yes even the infamous (and litigious!) Funky Drummer by James Brown is here!
      Really the shocking thing is how much better most of these songs are than the modern sampled versions, and how much they use these songs as a 'crutch' and rely on their relative obscurity of mainly black artist originals...I mean Rockafeller Skank by Fatboy Slim IS Sliced tomatoes by the Just brothers, with an annoying shouty vocal and modern drums. Nothing original there, but the track the sample's taken from is great funky ska-inflected surfer style groove. And Moby's lifted whole vocal segments from Troubled so hard by Vera Hall for his 'Natural Blues'. What's the originality in stealing whole chunks from a emotional spiritual/gospel tune with no backing music?!?
      Other standout tracks are Marlena Shaw's 'Woman of the Ghetto' (sampled for Blueboy's 'Remember Me' which cruelly took all of the black-power politics OUT and used the ding-ding-ga-ding vocal!), Ain't there something money can't buy by Young holt unlimited, sampled by Gang Starr's Love sick, but an equally or better track...and much more political than the hip-hop track.
      Take Yo' Praise by Camille Yarbrough, again ripped off by Fatboy Slim for the vocal to 'Praise You', the only redeeming feature being that he's brought to our attention a great track that otherwise may be overlooked...Soup for One by Chic which became the ultra-cheesy Lady by Modjo, and Expansions by Lonnie Liston Smith, for which the bass groove was taken for the equally sample-political 'Talkin' all that Jazz' by Stetsasonic...
      The one thing that does amaze is the tiny loops that go to make up whole songs, and for this I think there is some originality, rather than Fatboy's and Moby's lifting of whole vocal riffs: that filter-disco-groove that made Stardust's Music Sounds Better with You so cool is actually a tiny snippet from Fate by Chaka Khan, and similarly an amazing usse of a miniscule sample is Spiller's Groovejet which uses a tiny intro bit and congas from the disco-soul of Love is you by Carol Williams. This kind of reconstruction I can see some worth and skill in, like Black Box totally recreating another track from Loleatta Hollaway's Love Sensation; actually an amazing technical (if dubious) task.
      I'd highly recommend this double CD set: the sum of the whole of this compilation equals much more than all of the more famous tracks put together.
      These tracks and artists deserve much more recognition than a 2-second riff...it's ideal for sample trainspotters, but it's not an academic exercise as the original tunes are so great that ANYBODY should have this. --timbearcub / tim baker for amazon.com

    9. Things to Make & Do (2000) - Moloko [CD, Amazon US] [FR] [DE] [UK]
      Prior to "Sing It Back" being remixed into an Ibizan pant-swinging classic, Mark Brydon and Roisin Murphy were, of course, best known for being the acceptable face of comedy trip-hop. Therefore, anyone expecting Things To Make And Do to be full of handbag-circling, dancefloor stormers is in for a bit of a shock. You see, Moloko are an experimental pop band and not the disco stalwarts their success implies. Unfortunately, this often involves being as irritating as possible. Take "Indigo" for instance, a song so lyrically unhinged it makes "Lily The Pink" seem profound; or the snappily titled "If You Have A Cross To Bear You Might As Well Use It As A Crutch"--an anarchic showdown between Gilbert & Sullivan and Joy Division that's just plain daft. Murphy's voice still resonates like a loved-up Fenella Fielding--all trembling operetta meets pussy-cat growl, but Brydon's rhythmic quirks and off-kilter sounds are perfunctory, often bordering on the puerile. It's not all bad: "Absent Minded Friends" sounds rich and sentimental, while the languid bossa vibe drifting through "Being Is Believing" is Kate Bush in all but name. Ultimately though, the faults here far outweigh the virtues. --Paul Tierney for amazon.co.uk

      Moloko is the name of a dance-pop group from Sheffield, England, consisting of Roisin Murphy and Mark Brydon. Their first album, entitled Do you like my tight sweater? See how it fits my body was Roisin's chat-up line to Mark at a party back in 1995. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moloko [Mar 2005]

    11. El Baile Aleman - Senor Coconut Y Su Conjunto [1 CD, Amazon US]
      First, I must confess that tropical music isn't my cup of tea, after this, I want to state that the work that made Sr. Coconut left me fascinated! The way he give the felling, own from tropical music, to the electronic originals, is so warm [I dare to say 'organic'] so you can forget that are made from sampled instruments. The traditional marimbas and güiros run beautifully through almost all the tracks; the vocal work of this guy (Argenis Brito) is well done, and even less robotic and more close to a conventional 'charanguero' singer. -- Nestor Gonzalez Vargas for Amazon.com [...]

    12. Femi Kuti - Remixed [1 CD, Amazon US]
      One of the best Afrobeat releases ever - primarily due to the phenomenal mix. While Femi's father Fela's afrobeat succeeded in spite of lacadasical mixes, here a group of mostly french producers lay a thick and drum-heavy house style mix on Femi's contemporary take on afrobeat and the result is fantastic - this double CD pushes afro-beat into the 22nd century with a nod and a wink to King Tubby on the way. The usual afro beat horn arrangements are pushed to the background allowing a unique focus on the rythmic elements. I hope Femi continues in this direction instead of following the usual label-charted path for African mucisians - packing releases with lame guest spots by rappers and rockstars - stay underground, Femi, and keep it real. -- RP from NYC for amazon.com
      Femi Kuti is the son of Fela Kuti, in this 2000 project he is remixed by Kerri Chandler, Francois Kevorkian, MAW, Ashley Beedle, Mateo and Matos, Joe Claussell, who is Dixon, Chari? [...]

    14. ESG - A South Bronx Story [Amazon US]
      The four Scroggins sisters (Renee, Deborah, Valerie, and Marie) and neighbor Tito Libran burst on to the music scene from left field in 1981 with the remarkable success of "UFO" and "Moody" off their debut 12-inch record. Thanks to the ascendance of hip-hop, the South Bronx was very much on the musical map at the time. But ESG's minimalist funk, which featured live instruments, was closer in spirit to what was coming out of the U.K. at the time--PiL, Gang of Four, and the Factory label (which released ESG's first three songs). Their approach also had kinship to New York bands Konk, Bush Tetras, and Liquid Liquid (the latter two would become their label-mates on the semi-legendary 99 Records). "Moody" entered permanent rotation at New York dance clubs such as the Paradise Garage, while "UFO" became a hip-hop building block, used as sample material for at least a dozen other records (and still counting). The appeal of the tracks lay in the taut interaction between Deborah and Valerie's bass and drums, abetted by Marie and Tito's congas as well as Renee's sparse but precise guitar and unadorned vocal style. The stripped-down nature of the sound lent itself to hip-hop producers' layering on top of it and has helped the music successfully weather the intervening decades--there's none of that "What were they thinking with that synthesizer sound?" problem that afflicts some early '80s music. The CD includes much of their 99 Records output and tracks from their self-titled 1991 release on the Pow Wow label. The 99 Records label itself went down in legal flames, and that Renee Scroggins' apparently owns the rights to the music is noteworthy in itself. But the historical significance and sheer listenability of the music make this a most welcome reissue. --Bob Bannister [...]

    16. Vocal City - Luomo [1 CD, Amazon US]
      Luomo is the newest alias of the artist known best as Vladislav Delay, whose austerely minimalist dub-influenced tech-house is the stock in trade of the Chain Reaction and (to a lesser extent) Mille Plateaux labels. The extent to which fans of that sound are interested in this release should be partly the extent to which their tastes extend to the application of that aesthetic to vocal house-music tracks, which is what Mille Plateaux's Force Tracks imprint was created to explore. Although the more abstract house producers have often treated singers as source material hardly different from the electronic elements of the mix, the notion that vocals represent a "human" element, or at least a connection to the world of song, is hard to shake. Luomo may indeed shake you of that idea, as the vocals are just another one of the many layers on these dense tracks, often not appearing until after many minutes of slow accretion of sounds, at which time a few words or phrases are electronically processed and looped endlessly. All of which makes the track "Tessio" even more startling, when a full-fledged multi-voiced R&B song worthy of the Paradise Garage suddenly appears. Even from a musician who has been heading in a half-dozen directions at once over the past year, this is quite a surprising release. -Bob Bannister [...]

    21. Supermodified (2000) - Amon Tobin [Amazon US] [FR] [DE] [UK]
      Amazon.com's Best of 2000: Amon Tobin's off-kilter rhythms and jazzy samples create a beautiful mess on Supermodified. Feeding off Latin rhythms, downtempo beats, and wildly adventurous musical jumbles, Tobin's manic bliss never allows the songs to wander, working a sense of method into a sea of crazy atmospheres. The result is focused, enticing, and fascinating. --Matthew Cooke for amazon.com
      At the junction of jazz and breakbeat science, Amon Tobin is one of the undisputed masters. Instead of drawing on jazz samples and styles as a sort of prepackaged cultural signifier, he's engaged in the cross-fertilization and recontextualizing that many aspire to but not so many achieve. On this release, he casts his net farther afield--the smoky nightclub trumpets and sultry beats of 1998's Permutation are still present, but the hummingly intense electronics and roiling drums on tracks like... read more --Amazon.com
