Finally on wax! Back in 2005, LCD Soundsystem created an astounding piece entitled 45:33 (as in 45 minutes and 33 seconds long) originally commissioned by Nike and intended to be a jogging soundtrack. It was quite a track, one that mutated and morphed into several movements and one that frontman James Murphy is known to be very proud of. Fast forward to 2009 and 45:33 gets revisited by the dance scene's brightest producers for some truly stunning remixes. The original CD version contained all 8 remixes on one disc, but for the vinyl release they are split up onto four 12"s, each side dedicated to a single remix. This volume includes Theo Parrish's brilliant remix, which is signature Detroit-style all the way (my fave of the bunch), and Pilooski's remix that hypes things up with vocoded vocals and a frenzied electro-disco vibe. Recommended.
