The Rapture - Tapes (new mix tape from the NYC boys)

"The Rapture “Tapes” provides a beautiful mix of funk, house, rare-groove disco, hip-hop and electronica. A wealth of seminal gems hidden within this 22-track monster of an album

The Rapture, known for cowbell-smashing electro rock anthems, have been very kind in compiling a fine selection of musical treats just for our ears. The tastes span three decades from 70’s French disco pioneers Martin Circus to 90’s club hits; remember Paul Johnsons classic “Get Get Down”?

There’s techno tones from the likes of Kid Crème; head-nodding and knee jerk appreciation for Armand Van Heldens “Flowerz”; foot -tamping from 80’s rap giants the Junkyard Band with their bass heavy epic, “The Word” and classics such as Vaughan Mason & Crew “Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll”.

The Rapture boys fuse the old with the modern and with so many artists releasing compilation CDs; this one stands out by miles."
