About this item
Beaumonde cement their status as a label to watch with a mega reissue of this overlooked Cameroonian boogie bomb by Dick Dickson. He was clearly aiming for the US funk sound in fashion at the time when he recorded "In The Pocket" in 1986.The session took place in Togo and had band members come from Congo, Cameroon and the French West Indies making the music of "In The Pocket" an outstanding rendezvous between electrified-boogie and African influenced groove. With the help of Régine Féline’s sensual voice, melodic synth pads and distinctive slap bass, "In The Pocket" grabs you instantly. Totally overlooked upon its release, BeauMonde felt that Dick Dickson’s unique offering deserved a second chance, so make sure you take full advantage.
Patrick says: Thoroughly groovy Afro-funk fire here from Cameroon-born Dick Dickson and his overlooked 1986 boogie bomb "In The Pocket". Aside from a superlative example of slap bass excellence, the track tugs at the heartstrings with spiralling synths and smooth vocals - Mega!
