The first volume in the Takeover Bid
series (manned by Mickey Finn
on round two) includes an unsurprising clutch of tracks by Aphrodite
himself ("Underworld," "Wikki Wikki Plate," "Rising Quince," "Bomber Style"), though none are major anthems. The other selections -- by Click 'N Cycle
, DJ Tee Bee
, even a remix of a Prodigy
track -- aren't stellar, King's mixing saves the day and makes Takeover Bid: Round One
a solid jump-up album.
