Embraced by the masses and the underground, Kylie Minogue has never been just a pop diva. With a Stock, Aitken and Waterman pedigree, she has turned time and again to dark-horse remixers to reconfigure her sunniest hooks for late-night sensibilities. Boombox collects the best, including the Chems' grinding, breakbeat rework of "Slow," Sebastien Leger's bubbling "In My Arms" and Fischerspooner's spangled slab of analog glam. Best of all is Soulwax's New Order-jacking "Can't Get Blue Monday Out of My Head" -- one of mash-up culture's first, and most enduring, hits.
