Mixing rare gems with classic cuts, DMC open their 2007 account with an effusive instalment of their unparalleled 'Back To Mine' compilation series. Revealing highlights from Norway's finest record collection, maestros of the masterpieces, Röyksopp, take pole position in a year that will see the 'Back To Mine' franchise reaching new heights.

Reflecting the widescreen, cinematic sensibilities of their million selling debut album, 'Melody AM' and the dancefloor drenched grooves of follow up, 'The Understanding', Röyksopp have drawn on the obscure and sublime, hand-selecting tracks as rich in quality as they are in history, for 'Back To Mine's 25th outing.

Kicking off with Talking Heads 'Born Under Punches (The Beat Goes On)', Brian Eno's final (and perhaps finest) production for the band, Royksopp start slipping in the stunners early, dropping the electro welding strength of Harry Thumann's 'Sphinx', with Knight Rider-esque, classic early 80s charm. The championed funk of Pino Diango, classic bass manoeuvres of Edgar Winter and shimmering electro disco of Ray Mang charge up proceedings, before dropping the tempo with Mike Oldfield's 'Charleston' which segues into an exclusive track from Röyksopp under their pseudonym Emmanuel Splice.

The Low slung bass of Jesse G's 'That's Hot' and Art Of Noise's 'Breakers anthem 'Legs' up the pace as Röyksopp cruise through a masterful lesson in Italo Disco, Hip house and P-Funk. Ginny's deep slow jam 'Can't Be Serious' settles the groove back before Funkadelic's 'I'm Never Gonna Tell It' and the burning R'n'B of the New Birth's 'It's Been A Long Time' bring affairs to a soulful close.
