You know you’re on to a winner when your dance compilations throw in digital harpsichords and vocoders by the second track. And Donovan’s ‘Wonderland’ – in all its Timberlake-ripping choruses and flagrant funkiness – is a microcosm of the ‘Edges’ compilation it came in on: playful, inventive, and shamelessly poptastic in its approach to the dancefloor.
Because Music (DJ Mehdi, Krazy Baldhead, Kap Bambino) have rounded up the leading lights of French electronica, from Chateau Marmont to Djedjotronic (who has a great Major Lazer mix on MySpace) for this foray into the future.
Our track, Digikid 84’s spacey synth / bongo face-off ‘Bboy Underground’, also sums up the album’s MO pretty well. It’s out Monday – go get.
