    As the title suggests, Paris City Coffee showcases mellow, mostly French electronica and electronic pop, including Air's breezy remix of Ollano's "Latitudes" and Thievery Corporation's similarly smooth treatment of Emilie Simon's "Desert," as well as Franois K's remix of Femi Kuti's "Sorry Sorry" and King Britt's remix of Kuti's "Traitors of Africa." Modjo's "Savior Eyes" and Cerrone's 1978 track "Music of Life" are cleverly paired, reflecting the bright pop and disco elements that have influenced French dance music for nearly three decades. Simon Says' "Late at Night" is another highlight, pairing a shuffling, slightly delayed beat la Gary Glitter's "Rock & Roll, Pt. 2" with mostly spoken vocals and simple but effective touches of brass and keyboards. Other standout tracks include Kojak's suave "Crime in the City," Brigitte Bardot's early-'70s single "Neu au Soleil," and Novo Navis' "Cyberkraft," which, with its deadpan vocals, stomping house beat, and analog synth tweaking, is a kissing cousin of Daft Punk and Mirwais' work. However, this is the only track on the whole collection that fits into that mold; despite the late-'90s feel of much of Paris City Coffee, its eclecticism and its smooth atmosphere make it a worthwhile compilation. ~ Heather Phares
