There are two camps of electronic-music producers: those endlessly edging toward the future and those obsessed with revisiting the past. Philadelphia-based DJ/producer King Britt pitches his tent smack dab in the middle of the latter with the '80s-centric "Re-Members Only," part two of his throw-back trilogy. The memories evoked are as annoying as they are pleasant -- not unlike the decade itself.
Gathering together a variety of pros from hip-hop, jazz, pop and R&B to assist in the homage, "Re-Members" fares best with the ballads and hip-hop tracks. De La Soul's Pos and Truguoy work overtime on "Cobbs Creek," while the late Grover Washington Jr. gives listeners another reason to mourn him on "For Love." But by contrast, not even contributions by Martin Fry and Alison Moyet can mask the aimlessness of "One and Only" and "Skipping Stones."
