Mark October 14th on your calendar for Earth Dance, the annual international dance party to benefit world peace and humanitarian causes. Events for the year 2000 numbered over 80 worldwide. This two-disc set includes an 11-track dance CD and a bonus CD-ROM. No "Kumbaya" here; the songs are high-powered and rhythm bound, combining hard, raw electronica with sundry samples. While some tracks are quite complex, such as the polyrhythmic "Elvin Suite," most are built over a dance-friendly 4/4 groove with patterns changing every eight measures. Medicine Drum's "Rattlesnake" slithers along on a serpentine bass groove, while a trap set rapid-fires its rhythms; the vocals are more evocative of East Indian music than the Native American chants that the title and artist name might suggest. The CD-ROM contains an hour-long documentary about the dance parties and their pacifist spirit, with interactive features linked to the Internet. Proceeds from the sale of Earth Dance benefit a variety of peace and ecological projects.
