Your friendly neighborhood Groove Merchants Cool Chris and Vinnie Esparza come correct with this stellar comp. Given the depth of Chris and Vinnie's crates, this could have easily been an obscure record wank-a-thon. And while the cuts are pretty rare for the most part, the emphasis here is on a variety of quality dancefloor music, from Dub Diablo's sublime cut 'n' paste ode "The Shape Up" to Zap Pow's "Lottery Spin," a dubbed-out cover of Kool & The Gang's "N.T." There's a song for just about every dancefloor mood to be found here, making it as versatile as it is fun to listen to. Dis-jointed is a well-executed comp, light on pomp and circumstance, heavy on quality.
