Montreal's DJ Tiga, most notorious for his 2001 remake of Corey Hart's "Sunglasses at Night" (with Zyntherius "Jori" Hulkkonen), joins the latter faction for Studio K7!'s DJ-Kicks series. Unlike 2001's Mixed Emotions, this new compilation revels in the hype. His self-produced "Man Hrdina" is a richly textured Italo track, as is Break 3000's "Sacrifice" (a remake of Mr. Flagio's classic anthem "Take a Chance"). Unfortunately it's all sloppily mixed, especially when Sir Drew's "She Male" crashes chaotically into DFA's remix of Le Tigre's "Deceptacon," making one wonder if they should have been blended together in the first place. Even worse, many of the tracks have already reached their expiration date on the dance floor. The CD has one saving grace, though: It thankfully omits Tiga's dreadful remake of Nelly's "Hot in Herre."
