Do you remember when in the nineties a lot of new sub-genres were surfacing? When labels like K Records started to release stuff was one of the first times that I heard talking about lo-fi music. Well, listening to this second album by Eats Tapes, titled DOS MUTANTES, this is the term that came to my mind. Their name along with their music are making me think about alien beings that ate old tapes of electronic music and then someone recorded their digestion's noises. The result is a cut up of eletronic lo-fi music that sounds like a battle of old Amiga video games. The patterns are looped just to form a particular robotic soundtrack and, for example, on "Full blast" it seems to listen to the battle plan speeched by a 56Kb modem. The duo plays particular and inspired instrumental tracks that will please the lovers of 8bit sounds.

Third volume of the American Gigolo series, the one compiled and mixed by Princess Superstar is the best so far. I’m telling this because she took the best electro tunes of the label and she mixed everything creating an hour of non stop party. She also did a sort of mash-up on some tracks by blending: Vitalic "You Prefer Cocaine" with M.I.A.’s "Bucky Done Gun", Miss Kittin & The Hacker "1982" with Sebastien San’s "Interplanetary [Lightspeed Mix]", The Presets "Steamworks [Princess Superstar Remix]" with Crooklyn Clan’s "Yes We Can", The Diskokaines "Rock A Boogie [Arr Rmx Live In Nyc]" with The Model’s "You Are Always On My Mind", Fischerspooner "We Need A War [Dj Hell Berlin Mix]" with Traxx Presents The Dirty Criminals’ "Mtt Inversion", Diddy & Felix The Housecat "Jack U Vs I’ll House You [Dj Hell Mix]" with Hell & Richard Bartz’s "1234" and Bodzin & Huntemann "Black Ice" with Hell & Anthony Rother’s "German Body Machine". Along with these tracks your can find fade ins and fade outs that are mixed with Hell "Let No Man Jack [Abe Duque Remix]", Mu "Let’s Get Sick", Digitaria "Teen Years", Djs Are Not Rockstars "European Accent" (one of her projects) and so on. On this album you won’t find any rip off or any moment where you’ll stop to dance. Twenty tracks to discover (some of them are exclusive) and to re-discover into a renewed version thanks to Princess Superstar!
