Kitsune understand that disco and romance make ideal bedfellows. As such, this collection features slick house vibrations celebrating or commiserating love. Alan Braxe and Fred Falke’s “Love Lost” makes heartache sound fabulously glamorous, while Shakedown’s “Lovegames” deftly unites Giorgio Moroder electronics with A Certain Ratio’s wiry, wry funk. Worth buying for Gonzales’ faux cabaret version of Daft Punk’s “Too Long” alone. Unfortunately, there’s unwise filler, but this cupid-house package displays more smart thinking than any chill-out box set.
