Album Review

An all-star roster of remixers, most of them hip-hop-oriented, give the downbeat soundscapes of DJ Cam their own personal twists on Revisited By. Kenny Dope, Thievery Corporation, Kid Loco, DJ Premier, DJ Vadim, Bob Sinclair, Lord Finesse, J Dilla, 4hero — you couldn't ask for a more stellar lineup, or a more relevant one, as many of these guys specialize in the sort of beatwork comprising the essence of Cam's work. So if remix albums are judged by the talent at hand, this one is first-rate. Or if remix albums are judged by the fruits of the labor, this one is likewise first-rate. Not only is the talent here; the roster fulfills its promise, resulting in a baker's dozen of head-nodders, only a few of which are so-so. Moreover, several tracks feature rappers, which makes the remixes feel less like remixes and more like traditional productions, and most feature the trademark characteristics of their remixers, which should satisfy those who approach this disc because of the all-star roster. On the other hand, some DJ Cam aficionados may be disappointed by the extent to which these remixers make the tracks their own. Such disappointment would be beside the point, however: one doesn't hire such producers as J Dilla or DJ Premier unless one desires the obvious outcome. If only all remix projects were this enjoyable. In fact, it's occasionally more enjoyable than the work of DJ Cam himself. [The 2006 Inflamable edition includes three bonus tracks.]

Like countrymen the Mighty Bop and la Funk Mob, Cam is stylistically closest to Mo'Wax artists such as DJ Shadow and DJ Krush; minimalist, downbeat instrumental hip-hop built...
