The early 80’s was actually an exciting period in dance music history, where all the seeds of now flourishing contemporary forms of Hip-Hop, R&B and Dance music were really planted in the form of technology. This renaissance mainly occured in the thriving and hip underground clubscene where black dance music evolved into what we call Boogie today, electronic dance music marked out by its soulfulness and integrity. Boogie, as one of the post-disco subgenres, lacks the four-on-the-floor beat, which is a “traditional” rhythm of disco music. Aside from the moderate influence of synthpop, boogie heavily draws from funk music.

Typical boogie tracks can be characterized by mid-tempo rhythm, prominent use of slap bass, loud clapping sound, melodic chords and, obviously, synthesizers. The Boogie dance tunes, with their super-catchy layers of vocals and synths on top of machine-driven beats, totally redefined how dance music would sound into the next decades. The Boogie phenomenon can largely be summed up by the output of the larger New York Disco labels like Prelude, Vanguard, SAM, West End, Salsoul and Radar in the early 80’s.

It took a long-time for Boogie to surface from the underground. It had been largely ignored or regarded as Disco’s poor cousin, perhaps too slow, too electronic, too R&B, too black even. But it kick-started a musical groundswell which would see club music topping the charts all over the world again with hit songs from acts such as Change, Loose Ends, The S.O.S. Band, B.B.&.Q Band etc.

Our cd’s features classic Soul favourites from Teena Marie, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, Oddessy, Chaka Khan, Loose Ends, Soul II Soul, and many many more.
