DJ SHADOW, CUT CHEMIST, THE MIGHTY UNDERDOGS, REV. SHINES
(Roseland, 8 NW 6th) Here is my list of the sexiest tunes of the triphop era: "Superheroes" by Esthero, "It's a Long Road" by Funki Porcini, "Original Bedroom Rockers" by Kruder & Dorfmeister, "Sexy Selector" by Rockers Hi-Fi, and, of course, "What Does Your Soul Look Like (Part 1-Blue Sky Revisit)" by DJ Shadow. Found the at end of DJ Shadow's Endtroducing..., the tune has a slamming beat, a horn that longs to caress a beautiful body, and a bass line that forms the curves of a beautiful someone. At the end of a loop, there's a sudden eruption of depth charges; released from a quick scratch, a choir is devoted to the Gods of procreation; and as warm things sonically shimmer in the moonlight of a transfigured night, a woman sings to her man in English and a man sings to his woman in Spanish. The erotic atmosphere is thick, moist, and marvelous. DJ Shadow knows sex inside and out. CHARLES MUDEDE
