Remix [Bonus Track] [EP] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Unfortunately, when artists decide to commission remix discs of their catalogs, they often end up awash in a sea of predictable reconstructions and lackluster filler material that seem like nothing more than courtesy acts from other artists. In this instance, it is thankfully not the case whatsoever. After much consternation from only releasing a few of these tunes on vinyl, the ladies of Le Tigre made the excellent decision to supply these carefully crafted remixes together on one compact disc.

Unfortunately, when artists decide to commission remix discs of their catalogs, they often end up awash in a sea of predictable reconstructions and lackluster filler material that seem like nothing more than courtesy acts from other artists. In this instance, it is thankfully not the case whatsoever. After much consternation from only releasing a few of these tunes on vinyl, the ladies of Le Tigre made the excellent decision to supply these carefully crafted remixes together on one compact disc. Wasting no time in deconstructing and rewashing some of the most delicious moments of their catalog, Analog Tara's acid-disco interpretation of "Tres Bien" seamlessly works its way into the Tigerbeat6-esque breakbeat-happy "On Guard," remixed by Swim With the Dolphins. Contributions are also generous from N.Y.C.'s Reid Speed and New Yorker by way of Detroit Lauren Flax, who abandons her drum'n'bass roots for a very R&B-punk reworking of "Much Finer." But unquestionably the highlight of this remix package is the bona fide juggernaut hurricane remix of "Deceptacon" by modern-day art punk heroes DFA. These six minutes are so infectiously funky and dancefloor-friendly that the ladies had an 11-minute extended-mix bonus track tacked on the end of the disc as the perfect reprise and appropriate finale to a wholly enjoyable remix disc.
