Various (mixed by Black Strobe) - The Other Side - Paris

Sadly, the Paris instalment of The Other Side series is musically less interesting than the entries focusing on New York and London. Bar a goth interruption from Bauhaus, French duo, Black Strobe, stick to a dark, sweaty techno remit, dispensing with the more eclectic feel brought by fellow compilers, Fischerspooner and Damian Lazarus. Occasional tracks stick out (such as Intro by Black Strobe themselves), but one suspects this track listing will be just a bit too underground for many.

Ironic then that the travel guide, taking you to some of the city's odder locations, is arguably the best yet. An interview with Black Strobe is even tacked on at the end. You're still unlikely to watch it more than once, however.
