3 stars After their tour of the "Taiga" album Japanoise avant-prog goddesses OOIOO released a little EP that offered alternative booty shakin' musical visions as interpreted by Yamantaka Eye which took the two "Taiga" tracks "Umo" and "Uma" and added all the expected DJ filtered effects to make a nice night on the town when too many mind altering substances have fully kicked in and allowed maximum inhibition to strut yer stuff on the dance floor.

While one would hardly expect already danceable experimental music to be even more danceable, i have to say that being a huge fan of the "Taiga" album i do have a soft heart for Japan's psychedelic punk version of the Go-Go's and their extraordinarily creative improvisational approach to music. While it seems impossible to improve upon the original versions, EYE REMIX delivers some jazzed up electronica that does adhere to some of the stereotypes of REMIXed albums but more than works.

Energetic but non-essential, still cute and caffeinated but not necessary for your complete guide to the OOIOO experience since the original versions of these tracks were already so cute, cuddly and danceable. However! If you are ever so interested in slipping this into your DJ list at some rave in Rotorua or even rural Russia then this little naughty kitty album can only stimulate hydroxyl functional groups to activate their true potential with nary a circumscription. The tribal drums are still intact. Just add some beatronica and voila! You have EYE REMIX
