But if fun, fun, fun is your bottom line, there are plenty of high-ranking label execs accounting for your taste. You won't be disappointed. Popular rhythm is the grilled cheese in the cafeteria of radio sounds: It will stay on the menu forever. Your pal Goldie, who thirsted for the compositional betterment of dance music himself back in the day, has recently remixed everybody else's greatest jungle hits into a two-disc jump-up--Incredible Sounds of Drum 'n' Bass (Ovum/Ruffhouse/Columbia)--that's convincing even for nonbelievers. Hell, even Wynton Marsalis's Lincoln centrists are now touring with a "For Dancers Only" revue. See? Dance music, as ever, prevails. What's a tiny drop of Art in this vast ocean of sound?
