Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Armand Van Helden, The Headhunters, N'Dea Davenport, Tre Hardson, Fiona Marr, Tekitha Washington.
  • Audio Mixer: Armand Van Helden.
  • Audio Remixer: Armand Van Helden.
  • Armand Van Helden's sample- and breakbeat-fueled house never shies away from pugnacious bandying about of its influences; any eagle-eared listener versed in classic disco, old school hip-hop, and even `80s new wave pop would be familiar with the source material scavenged for the producer's 2000 album, KILLING PURITANS. Mining hooks from songs as varied as Sylvia Striplin's club classic "Give Me Your Loving" ("Full Moon"), to the punishing metallic riffs of the Scorpions' anthem "Bad Boys Running Wild" ("Little Black Spiders"), to Gary Numan's noir-influenced new wave hit "Cars" ("Koochy"), Van Helden embraces a more carefree era in clubland, where DJs were free to mix styles and sensibilities as long as they kept groove pumping.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (8/3/00, p.55) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...A pugnacious party album....KILLING PURITANS may come to be known as the album that launched Gangsta House."

Spin (1/01, p.73) - Ranked #9 in Spin's "Top 20 Albums of the Year [2000]".

Spin (7/00, pp.147-8) - 8 out of 10 - "...Confliction has never sounded better....gritty trademark house variants conjure the feel of a packed club when [stuff] is blowing up. The one-two KO comes mid-set....his greatest come-hither record yet..."

Q (7/00, p.124) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Equates musical snobbery with global capitalism and proclaims 'Individualism is God'. This effectively translates as a punk-rock snottiness and attendant fondness for brazenly simplistic conceits..."

Uncut (8/00, p.85) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A diverse excursion to The Paradise Garage, the floor of the Boutique, Rio Carnival and all spots in-between..."

CMJ (6/26/00, p.3) - "...A rough 'n' randy concoction of beats and bass..."

Melody Maker (6/13/00, p.81) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...[It] has a kind of giggling exuberance that's as near to Beavis & Butt-head as it is to Shanks & Bigfoot....the message is simple - you can't beat dance music that rocks..."

Mojo (Publisher) (6/00, p.104) - "...The nearest thing America has to Fatboy Slim....[the album] has the same cheekily opportunistic spirit [of its predecessor], Van Helden's sticky fingers busily probing all kinds of forgotten pop cultural corners..."

NME (Magazine) (5/20/00, p.41) - 7 out of 10 - "...Van Helden rocks....[The album] is well-crafted and commendably diverse....[He] is great at creating slamming neo-disco hooks..."
