Teo 'Boogymann' Moritz has been fiddling around the fringes of the French disco/house scene for the best part of 15 years. In that time, he's released a single album and a handful of 12"s - not enough to register an international profile, but significant enough to make a well-known underground producer in France. My Disco Freaks Vol 6 is typical of his sound, and very French. These are long, atmospheric, heavily filtered disco re-edits - purist enough to appeal to the disco diggers, and floor-friendly enough to slip into house sets. Choose between the midtempo disco-funk of "Party Now" and the slick build of "Oh Baby".
French imprint Superhuit once again call on South African based producer Infrared for The New Break, an EP of funk infused breakbeat delight. The title track is an edit of a mystery funk track, beefing up the drums, adding some deft scratches and looping the horns to great effect. "Lonelyness" wraps some slap bass and neat string arrangements around a tough break with sultry female yelping for good effect. The flute loop and bass hook that signal the start of "Midnight" belie the drop into a shuddering break with "Planet E" upping the tempo, dropping some classic sampledelica over wah wah guitar hooks and plenty of scratched up grunts and ah yeahs.
