Fancy Footwork: Deluxe Edition
Label: Vice Records
Montreal's Chromeo aren't the stone-faced types. Thick with cowbells, vocoders and Moogs, their electro-infused funk celebrates '80s touchstones like D-Train and Rockwell with tongue firmly in cheek. Along with three tracks from their debut CD and the entirety of last year's Fancy Footwork, Fancier Footwork collects remixes from the likes of MSTRKRFT, Playgroup and Yuksek. Italy's Crookers turn "Fancy Footwork" into an irresistibly bouncy house anthem; top props go to DFA's driving rework of "Destination Overdrive," which lives up to its title and then some.
