Inspired by the dance music scene of the mid-80s to early 90s (think house, new wave, freestyle, hiphop, acid, hiphouse), Armand Van Helden set out to make Ghettoblaster retro-sounding. Though trying hard for retro is almost always a bad idea, it's worked well in this case.
For one thing, the sounds and styles he references are the same ones contemporary party music has been pillaging for the past few years. Van Helden, though, is upfront about his influences, knows how to produce the styles properly and makes no claim that this is anything other than big, dumb dance music about sex.
That may not sound like high praise, but it's summer and some of us just wanna get down. You'll be hearing some of these tracks at all kinds of parties in the next few months, from indie hipster dances to mainstream club nights.
