Various Artists - The Boogie Vol 4Tokyo Dawn
"The Boogie" Vol.4 is a gathering of funk heavyweights from the consistently productive Tokyo Dawn label. Each artists sprinkles their personal brand of funk and the result is seventy plus minutes of infectious funk. Among those heavyweights is UK soul man Omar who provides two tracks here. "My Prediction" and "Do What I Do", the former is remixed with wicked synths courtesy of Opolopo. Equally impressive was Reggie-B's space age funk in the form of "Do You Wanna Ride?". "Welcome To Me" from Amalia's sorely underrated "Art Slave" is full of soaring vocals and deep grooves. Other highlights include Personal Life's "One Step Closer", Soul Parlor's "Hybrid Funk and much more. Make no mistake, this is the disc you need if you want to have a funky good time.
