The 1994 LP D.I. Go Pop was a shot heard ’round the corner, if that: a lost masterpiece of evocative blur channeling Joy Division's melodic gloom through My Bloody Valentine's blissful noise-swarms, with sample loops outgunning the guitars. It was born from the prescient EPs collected here, all recorded by the London trio Disco Inferno between 1992 and 1994. Yearning vocals battle the din; "Summer’s Last Sound" is built on bass and birdcalls. Elsewhere, shattering glass forms a rhythm; song structures coalesce and dissolve. It's a chance for new futurists to discover what they're still catching up to.

    LMFAO | 2011

    This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
