Saucy Lady is a Japanese-born, Boston-dwelling artist on a one-woman mission to return to the outre disco diva chic of yore. Word of her larger-than-life persona has spread to the UK, where a close collaboration with Yam Who? has resulted in this joy of a retro disco single. The latter's mix blends four to the floor beats, Chic-style guitar, electro boogie bass and a sumptuous synthy atmosphere. Elsewhere E-Live adds a smooth 80s soul twist, Ourra opts for a dubbed out bass heavy vibe and Yuki takes us to Funky Town in the EPs sexiest mix. Hot stuff!
Boston-based Japanese singer/producer Saucy Lady has been responsible for a swathe of superb releases over the last couple of years, including outings on Star Creature, ISM and Monophonic. Here she makes her bow on Bristol-based Boogie Cafe. The original version of "Together", in which her sultry soul style vocals seemingly dance atop a hybrid p-funk/'80s soul groove full of crunchy Clavinet lines, swirling chords and rubbery synth lines, shows the Sauce-stress at her very best. It's backed with vocal and instrumental "E Live" remixes, both brilliant chunks of jazzy synth-boogie smothered in attractive synthesiser lines and elastic electrofunk bass. Superb stuff, all told.
