The Thievery Corporation is probably as well-known for their bass-heavy remixes as for their own work, and on ABDUCTIONS AND RECONSTRUCTIONS, they get a chance to show off some of their better pieces, such as the backbone they give to David Byrne's "Dance on Gasoline" or the dreamy take of Baaba Maal's "I Will Follow You." It's normal that they would gravitate to follow dub and reggae artists Black Uhuru, Avatars of Dub and Rockers Hi-Fi (who get a mix with a house beat), but they also bring their dub sensibility to Slide Five's "KC Doppler." More surprising is their take on Stereolab's "Tickertape Of The Unconscious" or Pizzicato 5's "Porno 3003," both of which retain vocal elements of the originals, but are now fully situated in a Thievery world. Gus Gus get "Polyesterday" funked up, while go-go proponent Ursula 1000 gets "Savoir Faire" disappears into the reverb. Their sound is unmistakable, and this collection shows why they were in such high demand.
