Post Disco Boogie! I found the LP while browsing an online site, the original as kinda pricey, but I got instant happy in the pants to this tune. Uptempo groove, great bassline, glassy Funk guitar tones, and some killer horns. ...

Forgotten Treasure: Steve Arrington “Beddie-Biey” (1983)

Oh the things you can find in dollar bins! My favourite kind of digging is getting down in the crates no one touches and spend a whole bunch of money on overlooked gems you can buy just based on a hunch or simply because of the...

Kleer "Tonight" (1984)

Forgotten Treasure: Kleeer “Tonight” (1984)

Kleeer is easily one of my favorite Boogie bands of all time, and I say this without hesitation; they’re up there with S.O.S. Band andImagination in my books, absolute classic 80’s Boogie. To me, Kleeer is a name that is al...

Arni Kristjansson “Boogie Mixx 5″

I’ll never forget the first time I heard the very first Boogie Mixx, I was travelling and stuck in my hotel room in a sketchy part of town just waiting to be picked up the next day. I spent a good 6 hours listening to it back...
