Album Review

Released shortly after Keoki's heavily promoted comeback album, Jealousy, Misdirected Jealousy features a number of producers loosely affiliated with the Moonshine label remixing tracks from the original album. Remixers include Nynex, GusGus, Hive, Überzone, Deepsky, DJ Dara, and a few others who aren't as well-known. As you may possibly presume from such a diverse array of producers, the results are quite dizzying. None of these artists fit conveniently into existing dance styles such as house or techno, and most seem to blur the lines between what album-based electronica sounded like in the late '90s (Prodigy, Underworld, Chemical Brothers) and the trance fad of 2000, with plenty of breakbeats thrown in to make things even more uncategorizable and new-sounding. So, to generalize, what you get here are dance tracks with lots of glossy and glitzy layers of superfluous synthesizer ornamentation laid over primarily breaks. None of the tracks are overly DJ-friendly, being more listener-orientated. If you're an admirer of the Moonshine label and its roster of artists, there's a good chance you'll find much to savor here. And, ironically, it's a much more adventurous and creative album than Keoki's original album, which sounded a bit desperate and unsure. These producers aren't afraid to take chances, resulting in some interesting results.

Biography

Born: 1968 in Panama

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Probably the most visible DJ on the mainstream U.S. dance scene, Keoki released a half-dozen mix LPs and, beginning with 1997's Ego Trip, his own breakbeat-trance productions as well. Born in Panama but raised in Hawaii, Keoki hit the mainland in the mid-'80s and gained an airline job in New York. While moonlighting at the Danceteria nightclub, he decide to translate his love of music into a DJ career and soon became one of the city's most flamboyant DJs -- he dubbed himself "Superstar DJ Keoki"...
