Various The Sound Of Young New York
- Words: Alexis Georgopoulos
- Label: Plant
If the title of this collection seems a bit up its own arse, it may not be so inaccurate after all. That is, if all of "Young New York" enjoys the rush of cocaine accompanied by the sounds of fresh, lo-fi disco punk and house-which, these days, most seem to. Mixed by Plant Bar owner and champion of all things DFA, Dominique Keegan, the collection is notable for its reliance on DFA material-three DFA-related mixes appear. That said, these tracks stand out in what is at best, a so-so representation of a particular sound. The DFA remix of Metro Area's "Orange Alert" alone makes it worth your subway tokens.
