Various Artists, 'The DFA Remixes Chapter 2' (DFA/Astralwerks)

The DFA Remixes: Chapter Two
Critical Mass
Label: DFA/Astralwerks

by James Hunter

You have to travel pretty far back -- to Michael Zilkha's late-'70s/early-'80s Ze Records -- to find New York dance music as purely entertaining as the minimalist, thumping tracks of DFA's James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy. In the same spirit as the pair's first volume, Chapter 2 doesn't merely document; it selects tracks that hold together as an album. There's the atmospheric majesty of Tiga and Goldfrapp, dirty beats via Nine Inch Nails, and innovative horniness from N.E.R.D. Without ever losing control of the dance floor, DFA still push the boundaries of their sound.
