French abstract hip-hop wiz and master remixer Kid Loco spins through the international pop underground on this slight, but very satisfying, remix disc. Working a diverse collection of artists -- from the massive (Pulp), to the midsize (Talvin Singh) to the minuscule (Gak Sato) -- Loco sends a passel of sonic options gliding along a surrealistic pillow of ambient groove. At times, as with oft-remixed high-pop legends the Pastels, we can hear the sound of indie rock gently floating into the next century. The band's "The Viaduct" loops through a lolling, futurist trip-hop plane that serves as a perfect companion to its fetchingly cooed lyric, "We need to stray/ And find a gateway." Sounds like a good idea, doesn't it? Still, the formula can get a little samey, as on spacey cuts that rework Anglo-Hindi electronicats Talvin Singh and Badmarsh + Shri to such new age elegance that any musical muscle nearly disappears before your ears. Loco fares better with guitar bands that have a little meat on their bones. The best moment here is his remix of "Tracy," by those glowering Scotsmen, Mogwai, on which a droning indie-rock figure is drenched in sunrise synthetics until it rings with the millennial promise Loco's poptronica fusion strives for. At moments like these, that future sounds very bright indeed.
