Dance music's obsession with Prince continues. 'Lies' is the kind of filthy raw funk that would have saved His Purpleness from the bland domain of corporate pop. Treated vocals lay down the 21st century blues over a typically rough old sparse German groove. Freaks and Rob Mello man the remixes, turning in two varied and deeply devastating dubs. Bonus cut 'Raw Beauty' combines beats as brittle as Bran Flakes, a sliced organ loop and eyebrow raising strings.
