Various Artists Black Strobe: A Remix Selection
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Playlouder
Parisian producers Arnaud Rebotini and Ivan Smagghe (a.k.a. Black Strobe) show the world their remix handiwork on this 10-track collection. Referring to themselves as the "dark side of disco," these guys let rip with their throbbing take on Tiefschwarz's "Ghost Track" while injecting Depeche Mode's "Something to Do" with serious sonic amphetamines. Like many tech-heavy mixes, the repetition, at times, becomes grating (a 10-minute-plus remix of Bloc Party?). The tightest track is the only original, an excellent, block party-rockin' "Shining Bright Star," perfect for that next gay biker-house gig they play.
