A seriously vital insight into what these twelve tracks (along with the incredible accompanying booklet) reveal to be a deeply inventive and progressive undergound dance culture in 80s Paris. There's a socio-cultural educative quality to such a collection, but let's not get this twisted up in cultural archaeology (or tourism) - this music twists, subverts, (re-)invents, and most crucially, bangs.
