Return to Music Page Tommy Boy Silver Label Compilation: FILTERED

That funky retro filtered sound first made it's appearance on the scene in a big way with "Music Sounds Better With You" by Stardust- and is quickly developing into a dance music sub genre in it's own right. Know for its swirling filtering effects (see Korg's Kaoss pad)- Filtered dance music has spawned it's fair share of hits with DJ Spiller's "Groovejet" filling the dance floors most recently.

New York based Tommy Boy Silver has released a compilation entitled simply "Filtered" which has been seamlessly mixed by New York DJ Robbie Rivera. The album kicks off with Stardust's "Music Sounds Better With You" and is followed up by hit after hit. Armand Van Helden's "U Don't Know Me", Joey Negro's "Must Be The Music", Moloko's "Sing It Back", DJ Spiller's "Groovejet", Funkstar Deluxe Vs. Bob Marley's "Sun Is Shining", Pete Heller's "Big Love", and Madison Avenue's "Don't Call Me Baby" are all included in the 15 track set!

If you've been into dance music for any amount of time, chances are you have at least a couple of these tracks in your collection already. Most of the mixes included here are the original, or at least the most popular versions of the songs. There's no hidden DJ gems in the group for this compilation seems to be more mainstream driven. Overall an enjoyable walk down memory lane both shared by some of the biggest classics along side of some of the newer hits- all twisted together by Robbie Rivera into a best of Filtered compilation.
