Shorter tracklist—longer songs. Vintage Donna Summer. St. Etienne tackle Neil Young (well, less “tackle” than “touch,” to stretch the metaphor), with the assistance of Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez & “Little” Louis Vega. Rick Rubin “ruins” Justice. Tata Vega speeds up Ned Doheny. SA Smash jiggifies Led Zeppelin & Howie B electronifies Robbie Robertson.
Oh, & three groups just flip the Reverse switch & run the tape backwards. Whaat? Yes, it’s true. A trio of backwards versions, created & released by the artists themselves. Why? Who knows; slowed-down music is enjoying some popularity, but taking songs & running them from back to front doesn’t seem to have caught hold with the music-loving public. Still, one man’s trash is another man’s hsart, I suppose.
