DâM-FunK, Onra, Chromeo and Hudson Mohawke are only a few of the most visible faces of a phenomenon, the recovery of 80s boogie, which is much more wide ranging than you would think at first. That’s why Marc Wallowy, capo of the Tokyo Dawn label, decided to dedicate a compilation album to the affair, collecting almost twenty recent pieces –some more house-oriented, some leaning towards hip-hop or towards urban pop, but all inspired more or less by the funk of Minneapolis, the electro, P-funk and R&B of the eighties– that serve as an overview of modern versions of boogie. Some of the previously unreleased cuts (by, for example, Amalia, Blaktroniks, Replife, Soulparlor and Vindahl) on “The Boogie” are, furthermore, previews of several of the albums to be released in 2011 by Tokyo Dawn. The compilation will be released on 21st January. If you want to listen to (part of) the tracks, click here.
