Let Dishes Replay!

Artist: Coldcut
Album: Let Us Replay!
Released in: 1999

Coldcut are legendary: they founded Ninja Tune and they have been instrumental in shaping the development of breakbeat, experimental hip hop and remixing styles. This album is remixed/live versions of their album Let Us Play!, and I gotta say it doesn't do a whole lot for me. The genre is not really my favorite, and the tracks aren't too attention-grabbing (in my defense, AllMusic agrees). The main exception is Atomic Moog 2000, a very effective sample-heavy break-beat-y topical track with a wicked funk sample.
