Doctor Rhythm Spirits Rejoice
Big 5 Boogie
The result was Doctor Rhythm and an album entitled "I Feel It Rising" from 1981. Based out of Cape Town's premier vintage vinyl emporium, Voom Voom presents the album's sultry slow-burner "I'm So Strong Now" (paired with a modern remix) and well as two versions of the disco-boogie swinger "Hook It Up" written by the pianist Mervyn Africa (the original track alongside a Fred Spider & Simbad edit and a crisp rework by DJ Turmix from NY to boot). The result is an essential dancefloor release documenting what is surely South Africa's best take on band-driven New York boogie from the disco years. - Calum MacNaughton (Sharp-Flat Records/As-Shams-The Sun)
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: Two South African boogie originals nicely touched up with some modern production tricks for two equally tasty remixes. Nice idea well executed.
