Reseña de álbum

The title Ghettoblaster says it all, and with it Armand Van Helden blasts back through the club scene's past, across a dozen freestyling tracks. Retro is the key theme here, even the song titles evoke yesteryear — "A Track Called Jack," "Je T'aime," "To Be a Freak," as Van Helden not only resurrects the sounds of the past, but deliriously mashes them together. "Go Crazy!" sets the stage with propulsive beats and the synth stabs so popular in their late-'80s day that they even infested the Jamaican dancehall; with its funky, faux bassline, exultant vocals from Majida, and a new wave-y synth line, this is house as it never was, but always seemed to be. As exuberantly old-school as that is, "Touch Your Toes" has it beat, a hip-hop, scratch-laden anthem driven by a bassline even fatter than Fat Joe, who with B1 gets the exercise class rocking. Both of those are originals. "I Want Your Soul," in contrast, is an inspired adaptation of "Do You Want It Right Now," where new wave meets hands-in-the-air house. Back in the Big Apple, music flows from every neighborhood, creating a stew of sounds all its own, and "NYC Beat" captures the nitty-gritty feel of the city, powered by a lethal bassline, shout-along Ramones style vocal samples, and a rocking new wave infected melody line. That quartet of songs supply the blueprint for the rest of the set, as Van Helden careens between new wave, early house, funk, and soul, occasionally sprinkling the set with a carnival feel courtesy of the cowbells. The cut and paste "This Ain't Hollywood" is sure to impress, the kaleidoscope styled "Still in Love" equally so, while "Je T'aime"'s down and dirty rhythm and fat, funky bassline will have the whole house shaking. However, in places Ghettoblaster suffers from the same problems that bedeviled the extended remixes that proliferated in the new wave scene: what sounded great for three minutes became interminable after four. High scores for accuracy then, but a few points docked for lack of imagination. Overall, however, this is an extremely clever, fun-infested set, with Van Helden effortlessly evoking specific styles and songs with a single note or beat. Old-school fans will have a field day, while the younger generations should find this trip down memory lane just as entertaining.

Phatter than your mom

I put Go Crazy! on the stereo and within minutes 30 scantily clad men were roller skating in my den. Then New Order showed up announced they were so inspired by this disc they would henceforth stop sucking and go back to their roots. By the end of the night, I had changed my name to "Muaricio" and was on a plane to Miami . . .

Armand is back!

I have loved AVH for almost 15 years now and he has always put on the best shows w/ the most energy and the greatest music and crowds. However recently his studio productions have been lacking iin that build up mega anthem-esq, mind blowing talent he is knows worldwide for.Well not anymore. This album is amazing from start to finish. I find it hard to describe this disk..the one word that comes to mind is phenominal.The track selection is solid, without being trendy, and the vocalists he has chosen are phenominal.and best of all, his mixing and continuety has never been better.Anyone who appreciated great dance music/trance should pick this disk up.From the hard core, old school AVH fans to those who are just now forming a relationship w/ him and his music, this disk will blow you away.WELCOME BACK ARMAND...THE WORLD HAS MISSED YOU!

It is what it is

A party album, nothing more nothing less. And that's fine by me. Sure, the lyrics aren't the best, but is that what this album is about? Very good interpretation of the 80s dance sound - very remiscent of Shannon (a good thing) - but with a few updated twists thrown in for good measure, although maybe could have been a few more.

Until he began branching out in 1996 with a barrage of album productions and remix classics (several of which were heard by more people than the originals), Armand Van Helden was one of the best-kept secrets in house music, recording for such labels as Strictly Rhythm, Henry St., and Logic. Afterwards, he became one of the top names in dance music altogether. As one in the steady progression of top in-house producers for Strictly Rhythm during the early '90s, Van Helden joined such names as Todd...
