A Night at the Tables

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Piotr Orlov
The house music they make may be as effervescent as a four-cylinder joyride, but when Dirty Vegas dig through the crates for their DJ sets, they're smart enough to step up with beats that have a little more under the hood. Those who know the Brit trio only via the melancholy strains of "Days Go By," their Mitsubishi-powered 2002 smash, may be taken aback by the in-your-face aggression of their first mix CD. It augments the soft and fuzzy tones of their debut's airy house with glammier, grinding grooves and stadium-techno pizzazz, broadening the music's appeal and giving it an unexpected amount of dance-floor heat. Tribal, swaggering epics like Oscar G & Ralph ...

Barnes & Noble - Piotr Orlov
The house music they make may be as effervescent as a four-cylinder joyride, but when Dirty Vegas dig through the crates for their DJ sets, they're smart enough to step up with beats that have a little more under the hood. Those who know the Brit trio only via the melancholy strains of "Days Go By," their Mitsubishi-powered 2002 smash, may be taken aback by the in-your-face aggression of their first mix CD. It augments the soft and fuzzy tones of their debut's airy house with glammier, grinding grooves and stadium-techno pizzazz, broadening the music's appeal and giving it an unexpected amount of dance-floor heat. Tribal, swaggering epics like Oscar G & Ralph Falcon's "Dark Beat" and Underworld's "2 Months Off" kick-start the proceedings healthy and hard. Yet even when they lighten the tone with sugar-water from Kylie Minogue or their own pop-techno creations, the guys spice up the set list with remixes that are bigger, faster, and stronger -- Scumfrog's reimagining of the Aussie vixen's "Love at First Sight" into a polyrhythmic thump has to be the pick of the bunch. A road-ready mix from one of techno's rising stars, A Night at the Tables sets Dirty Vegas's behind-the-decks skills in the fast lane.
All Music Guide - John Bush
Dirty Vegas, the smoothed-out trance trio with a commercial hit literally, gets the mix-album treatment here, presumably in order to instill some underground cred into an act who desperately needs it. The vast majority of dance producers spend years in the underground, making the success of Dirty Vegas rather suspect in certain circles. Besides the fact that there are barely any tracks here not available on CD, A Night at the Tables is inoffensive enough, and a bit of a treat for those who liked the group's debut full-length of 2002. After opening with a pop track, a remix of Kylie Minogue's "Love at First Sight," the trio illustrates its house smarts with tracks from Murk men Oscar G and Ralph Falcon the tribal "Dark Beat" and Chicago legend Frankie Knuckles "Keep on Moving" and spin through lush, swirling trance more akin to their own style Underworld's sublime "2 Months Off" and the Timo Maas mix of "See" by Starecase. The trio also find room for remixes of a pair of solid tracks from their LP, "Ghosts" and "I Should Know." Though the Dirty Vegas trio doubtless spends more time at the craps tables than with their turntables Dimitri From Paris has nothing to worry about, A Night at the Tables displays an appreciable sense of dance culture and taste -- certainly much more than their own recordings.
