Back to Mine Review

by AllMusic

BACK TO MINE is a series authored by artists who have the cultural cache to get paid for making mixes from their own stacks. The British team of DJs known as Audio Bullys (AKA Tom Dinsdale and Simon Franks) create a cool, eclectic set that is as heavy on vintage pop and rock (the Stranglers) as it is on influential house/electronica (the Prodigy).

Here you'll find everything from Madness and the Specials (two of the best 1980s UK ska acts) to the Kinks (whose insanely great "All Day and All of the Night" sounds oddly fitting here) to old-school soul (Bobby Caldwell's truly beautiful mid-tempo serenade "What You Won't Do for Love"). The mix also features smooth dance jams (Corrina Joseph's "Live Your Life with Me") and hard-driving house (Wildchild's "Renegade Master"). Dinsdale and Franks manage to sneak in a track of their own ("All Burnt Out," an exclusive for this album), and, in a set list that includes such slices of pop perfection as the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows," Audio Bullys are in good company.
