Drunken Monkey – Welcome to the Monkey House
Reviewed by Sadie O., 1/27/09
Electronic disco remixtape from the Bay Area. A lot of it really has a retro club-banging feel, and since a lot of the original tracks are fairly smarmy it tends to reek of casual sex (not that I’m complaining.) Tracks merge with lots of overlap – you can start and end anywhere. Levels are very low on my iTunes, so you might want to keep an eye on the needles.
No FCCs detected – all similar, but 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 12 best.
1. 5:27 *uptempo club dance beat with increasing layers of syncopation. Small fractured samples of the original song. Bassline shows up very late and adds so much...
2. 3:40 ***uptempo disco with lots of electronic layers, killer bass. Winds up thick with electronic squeebles.
3. 4:12 **midtempo syncopated hip wiggler with boops.
4. 3:46 ***midtempo, fun beat with the original vocals, which I personally find a hoot.
5. 4:49 **glissandos and chorus from previous track lingers, fading into fast disco beat, slick vocals. All terribly deep and meaningful, esp. if you are on the right sort of New Now Today-type drugs…
6. 5:41 ***utterly club-bangable and utterly unctuous – hilarious!
7. 2:36 **club groove with small samples of original song.
8. 3:33 **more uptempo, beat comes apart and back together with just bits of samples, mostly whoops until long rap from original.
9. 6:34 ***complex dance groove with whooshes and rubber bands. Bits of vocals that might be either haunting or crepuscular.
10. 6:09 **simple uptempo dance beat with female vocals. Several fades in and out, morse code sounds.
11. 4:41 ***starts with same club beat, but fades out and goes all somber and premonitious on us. Comes back with whooshes and blatts aplenty. Cuts out completely for several seconds.
12. 7:23 ***speeds up a bit, funky bass, instrumental.
13. 7:52 **there is an actual gap before this song! Different groove – more syncopated, less “clubby”. Ends with rubber bands, fades.
