Various Artists DJ-Kicks: The Black Edition
- Words: Martin Turenne
- Label: !K7
A vain attempt to breathe new life into the mash-up phenomenon, The Black Edition finds !K7 associates SST & Superdefekt pilfering the company's back catalog for mixable fodder. As such, you'll find a vocal by Dani Siciliano gliding over Swayzak's "I Dance Alone," and Mike Ladd getting all hot and bothered over Princess Superstar's "Do It Like A Robot." Well-blended though this disc may be, newbies looking for an introduction to the label would be better off buying last year's unmashed two-disc label compilation instead of this bastard child.
