Big Beat Conspiracy 1 is the first major stateside compilation of the latest
cleverly named techno offshoot genre, big beat. The collection, due April 7 on
Pagan Records, features high-energy rock-meets-electronica remixes by the
Chemical Brothers (retooling the Charlatans UK's "Nine Acre
Dust"), Underworld ("Rez") and Death in Vegas (tackling
St. Etienne's "People Get Ready"), as well as tracks by Fatboy
Slim and U.S. debuts by Sniper, J Knights,
Environmental Science and Hardnox.
