Big Beat: Future Classics Review

by Andy Kellman

Released in 2002, Atlantic's misleadingly titled Big Beat series has little to do with the form of rock-aggressive dance music popularized by the Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim, and much more to do with other forms of popular club music, whether it's mainstream house or upbeat R&B and hip-hop. Big Beat: Future Classics includes Jakatta's "So Lonely," Kings of Tomorrow's "Finally," Sunshine Anderson's "Heard It All Before," the Girl Next Door's "Salsoul Nugget (If You Wanna)," Plummet's "Damaged," DJ Spiller's "Tracey in My Room," and five other club favorites. This is a decent, albeit random, sampling -- and obviously, it's only necessary for those who are looking for a handful of these tracks in one spot.
