Coldcut - Let Us Replay
(2xLP/2xCD) Ninja Tune ZEN39/ZENCD39, 1999-01-26

Info :
En fait de Coldcut, c'est surtout 'Various Artists' qu'il aurait fallu agraffer à cet album de remixes de différents morceaux de "Let us play". Évidemment, vous imaginez bien l'exitation qui a gagnée mes neurones désormais bien seuls lorsque j'ai pu ouïr l'objet en question. En fait, "Atomic Moog 2000" reprend tout son sens entre les mains de Cornelius, tout comme le nouveau mix de "More beats & pieces" ici agrémenté du talent de DJ Lord Fader aux platines (un mec qui aime bien Eric B & Rakim et Public Enemy!). À noter dans la case 'j'ai de l'humour et des valeurs', l'inédit "Last night a cliche saved my life" featuring Grandmaster 'j'suis le premier rappeur' Flash et DJ Food. Donc, des grands moments à écouter presque comme un nouvel album si ce n'est qu'ici, ce sont les futurs stars de Ninja Tune qui s'éxercent à l'art de leurs maîtres. De plus, si l'informatique, la vidéo et les drogues vous interressent, un deuxième CD vous est proposé dans une version Rom... ce qui donne un CD-Rom! Fabuleux, non? Le petit hic c'est que seul les PC sont ici concernés. Honteux et dommage car Coldcut propose sur ce CD un petit logiciel de leur création ("V-Jamm") pour les vidéo-jockeys avec déjà pleins de samples d'images de leur clips et leurs versions intégrales. Un CD qui pourrait vite devenir une obsession si vous ne l'avez pas encore.
Note ninja remix funkjazztical breakbeat + cd rom hallucinogène : 5/5 (Tiff)

Press Release :
Game over.
Come Again?

The epic project entitled 'Let Us Play' is given the infamous Ninja camel regurgitation treatment to accompany VJAMM, the latest audio-visual innovation from the indupitable scientists of stoopid sound.

From the blissful meltdown cream massaged into the joints of 'Panopticon' and 'Rubaiyat' by the Irresistible Force and Carl Craig respectively, to the acoustic warblings of Miss Selena Saliva and the Sycophants on 'the Tale of Viginia Epitome' and 'Noah's Toilet', 'Let Us Replay' allows you to relive the thrill of those fast curves and urban shoot-outs - except this time, your passenger seat is filled by the likes of Grandmaster Flash, Shut Up & Dance, J Swinscoe , DJ Lord Faderand many more...

The remix project of Coldcut's latest landmark album includes live versions of 'Atomic Moog 2000' recorded at Sonarin Barcelona, and 'Panopticon', recorded in Tokyo. These were the result of a successful tour that saw a unique live show; gone are the days where some sad fucker presses play on his DAT machine and bobs his head. This album allows you to travel on the journey of progressive music, where perhaps a track is never finally finished - it just mutates with the continuous flux of change...

From the dancefloor pressure of Cornelius' 'Atomic Moog 2000' & Shut Up & Dance's chilling reworking of 'Evey Home a Prison' featuring Jello Biafra - to the classic ninja style cut-ups of 'More Beats & Pieces'(turntable version) and 'Last Night a Cliche Saved My Life', feat. DJ Food and the legend Grandmaster Flash - 'Let Us Replay' will have you hitting the restart button again, and again, and...
