The Rapture, 'Tapes' (!K7)

Critical Mass
Label: !K7

by Josh Modell

Fans of the Rapture might not be familiar with many of the artists on the New York dance punks' swift, 80-minute DJ mix; only a few (Ghostface, Richie Havens!) -- have poked their heads out from the underground. But what Tapes lacks in classic names, it makes up for in flow -- D.C. go-go (Junkyard Band), Chicago house (Cajmere, Paul Johnson), and vintage funk (the Bar-Kays, the Undisputed Truth) blend into one long ideal song for roller-skating or just dressing up like you're planning on roller-skating. Even the less party-friendly guests, like Kraftwerk-loving Syclops, can't slow the roll.
