Cool, confident and coated in 70s sample class; Sard Boogie develops his reputation as one of the more subversive, jazzier producers in the nu-funk movement with his fourth full lengther Funky Walker Dirty Talker. From the quirky key meanders on "5 6 Keyboards" to the early 90s hip-hop heaviness of "Peep Show" via the speedier, bloc-rocking swing-out "The Item", there's a great range on show, held together with a consistent theme of nifty chops and fun samples. Easily his most accomplished album yet.
The clue's in the name here, as this Melbourne producer is all about boogie-fuelled party vibes. Teaming up with the remarkably named DJ Welly, Sard delivers the third taster for his forthcoming EP. Featuring old skool cuts, breaks, scratches and samples, the good times grooves contained herein sound like the best bloc party you've never been too!
