About this item

The story goes that Marcel Vogel and Oye boss Delfonic met in Berlin around 12 years ago and started a weekly bar DJ night together with Tinko & Noema at a gay bar in Mitte. After bonding over disco and orange juice, the two have become total BFFs. It makes perfect sense then that the Lumberjacks In Hell boss joins the ranks of the OYE edit crew with this fierce four tracker touching on funk, disco, Afro and dub. The set opens with the funked up bass rumble of "Movin'", a percussive thud of scat style vocals, tribal percussion and warm organ keys which keeps the tension sky high throughout. Next up we funk it up with a sweet number that the Balearic crowd might just recognise. Jump onto the B-side and cop some feels via the shuffling congas, limber bass and female vox of "Lovin'", a hefty helping of mirrorball magic in vintage COMBi style. Finally, the slow and skanking "Talkin'" takes us into the sunkissed realm of deepest dub, with some African-American empowerment vocal samples thrown in for good measure. Right on.

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Groovy, funky and cheeky edits by no other than Em Vee. These four cuts will keep you moving and jumping from funk to disco and a touch of balearic.A bit for everyone but all of them of an outstanding quality. And that folks, is not something to oversee when it comes to the murky world of edits. Buy on sight I say.
