Montreal’s answer to Daft Punk? No, just daft. Making a sweetly Curtis Mayfield vocal track sound cheesy isn’t easy — it requires concerted sampling effort. Somehow BranVan 3000 manage to get the job done on Discosis (out Tuesday), proving that not even the participation of Big Daddy Kane, Youssou N’Dour, Eek-a-Mouse and Badar Ali Khan, producer Ric Ocasek and mixmaster Mark Stent (Madonna, Massive Attack) can save a clueless conceptualist like BranVan’s DJ James DiSalvio from his own utter wackness. Grand Royal is worse off than anyone imagined.
