Death in Vegas - Dead Elvis|
What would happen if you took the best of funk, grunge, hip hop, reggae, and dance-hall music and threw them all together into a big electronica sound blender controlled by a bunch of punks? The result might sound a lot like Dead Elvis, the debut smash from Death in Vegas.
From the very first few opening chords of this album, you know it's going to be down and funky. Death in Vegas has a definite groove goin' on, and the way they shift musical styles while keeping the breakbeats pumping is truly masterful. With guest vocalists and musicians to add weight to the beats (without drowning them) Dead Elvis delivers sounds from the tragically happy to the downright grungy. Not every track is a stand out, but it has more than its share of party-rompers and booty-shakers. This is an album you can listen to again and again. A must have for anyone interested in smart pop-electronica crossover.
