Sixteen F**king Years of G-Stone Recordings
by Various Artists
Vienna's G-Stone label doesn't seem like the type that would use profanity in its titles: Its output over the years has been sultry but always well-behaved. (Then again, one of the records to put them on the map was Tosca's "F**k Dub," which made no secret of their libidinal urges.) Gathering cuts from cornerstone acts Kruder & Dorfmeister, Tosca and Peace Orchestra along with deep-catalog gems, the comp ranges from skulking dance tracks to left-field indie; it's held together by mood-lit lounge grooves and make-out soundtracks polite enough to conceal how badly they want to score.
