Mr Scruff - Get A Move On



Mr Scruff - Get A Move On
Mr Scruff - Get A Move On
(12"/CDS) Ninja Tune ZEN1280/ZENCDS80, 1999-05

Info :
Bon, "Get A Move On", tout le monde connaît. France Telecom et Volvo nous l'ont suffisamment bastonné en zique de pub, à outrance. Le titre est génial, ultra efficace, mélodique et dansant, imparable, mais... si on enlève le sample y'a plus de morceau... C'est une fois de plus un remix non crédité et pas autre chose. Donc finalement un machin pas très digne... Ah là là! Les deux premiers albums de Moondog ont été réédités en un seul CD chez BGO, et le 6ème titre du premier album, "Lament 1: Bird's lament", et bien c'est "Get a move on!", mais en 1969!!! Bref passons comme dirait l'autre...
"Do you hear?" castagne pas mal, bon beat, bons petits samples, bonne petite face B, sans plus. "Ambiosound", en revanche, c'est vraiment du Scruff comme on l'aime, raffiné à l'anglaise, parsemé de samples à mi-chemin de notre Kid Koala préféré et de nos illustres Monty Python adorés chéris. Un bijou de coolitude à l'ancienne et en stéréo. "Give yourself the luxury of... Ambiosound!!". Quand au "radio edit" de "Get A Move On!", rien à battre.
Note : 3/5 (Djouls)
