Various Artists Back to Mine: Röyksopp
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: DMC
So good it'll make you want to kit up in North Face gear and move to Bergen, Röyksopp's Back to Mine works both as a schematic of the duo's musical DNA and as a pure joy in its own right. Tracks like Edgar Winter's "Over & Over" and I Level's "3am Give Me" sound like catalysts for Röyksopp's own Melody AM and The Understanding; others (Klein & MBO's "Dirty Talk," Guy Dalton's "Night People [New York Club Mix]") are more like straight-forward invites to lose it under some disco-light approximation of the aurora borealis. Brilliant.
