Keep those dancing shoes in the box-this is the kind of stuff that makes headphones worthwhile. With a smattering of sharp, broken beat tunes buffered by deep, subdued house, Floorplay 3 stays well away from the soporific without coming off as willfully eclectic or clever. Contributions from the likes of Titonton Duvante, the Lazy Boys and Mad Professor fuse together into a multi-faceted, intriguing sonic document rife with stuttered beats, haunting vocals and crisp percussion. An arresting mix like this deserves intent listening-missing a beat on this album would seem almost shameful.
