Marcel Vogel Feat Khalil Anthony

Brown Curls - Inc. Nebraska Remix

Marcel Vogel and Khalil Anthony team up on Vogel's own label, Lumberjacks In Hell and joined by long running house darling, Nebraska on remix duties. "Brown Curls" is a funky, laid back groove rich with pop sensibilities. It's like Amp Fiddlr, Andrew Ashong and Cody Chesnutt all jamming together in Theo Parrish's basement. Nebraska keeps it in the cellar as he languishes in the slower tempo, emphasizing the bass and adding rich percussion; transforming this into a basement / backroom burner of the highest quality. "You Are A Star" sees the idea expanded on across another funky, bumpety instrumental, Anthony's vocals again rising to the surface of the bustling rhythm section. "Those Moments" concludes proceedings, drawing in Rhodes and clavinet lines into its orbit before deploying a proper low-slung cosmic groove. A slight diversion from the EPs main theme, this little beauty'll satisfy the mid-tempo disco crowd with its vamping pianos and swaying, feel-good groove. Top stuff here from all parties, lots to get stuck into - get involved!

The Switzerland based group Alma Negra are offering a Afro- and Latininfluenced Disco EP tailor made for Lumberjacks in Hell. With all the instruments played live, this EP Sounds like and entire village celebrating the uplifting Alma Negra Signature Sound.

Marcel Vogel's third record on his own Lumberjacks in Hell in a row. 'If You Like' comes in three versions; the original, featuring Sensational & Tijdan is a typically sampletastic offering, seemingly constructed on the trusty MPC while the two collaborators drop some fresh bars over Vogel's beats n groove. Is this the first time Vogel's done hip-house..?! I think so... Alma Negra turns it into a totally tropical, backroom burner, the kinda shit you'd hear Theo dropping in the middle of Summer on an outdoor stage it perfectly cuts joyous vocal loops out of the OG whilst adding a plethora of stimulating instrumentation in the background. Finally, we get an alternative, instrumental version courtesy of Tim Jule who goes on a bit of a Roy Ayers tip with loads of live instruments and a proper jazz-funk sensibility. Top stuff!

Koenig Saatgut

The Spirit EP

Koenig Saatgut appears for the first time in 15 years with this high spirited double header which screams of vintage nostalgia and 90s hedonism. "The Spirit" is an unabashedly big track, matching a catchy dry piano lick and sticking an almost retroist big beat boom bap beat underneath it. "Your Houze" flips the mood into summat tighter and dare-I-say-it more sophisticated, bringing a modernist approach to vintage, sample heavy house music. There's a whiff of French touch and KDJ about this one, mixed with an incendiary and couldn't-care attitude that'll ensure it sets plenty of dancefloors alight this year. Big tune.

Lumberjacks in Hell boss Marcel Vogel and Berlin based singer Khalil Anthony team up the second EP in the series, exploring together their version of soul, disco and house. "Dance The Blues Away" get's remixes by BB Boogie and Julien Dyne from New Zealand but it's the OG that kicks things off in funky, grooving form. Timpani, fat-ass bass and sloppy beatdown drums characterize the piece, while Funkadelic-esque whopps and chants emanate from the recesses of the mix - very good! BB Boogie slaps up the bass section, adding electric guitar and some phaze to the vox, basically just getting the whole thing pumpin that bit harder, for later in the session. Meanwhile on the B-side, Julien Dyne contribute both remix and dub, smothering the track in a celestial haze whilst making use of the infectious percussion littered throughout the track. It's a smooth ride on both versions but it's the dubbed out one that clinches it for me... Ace stuff all around, nice work team.
