The Big Beat Legacy…

raw We are going waaaay back, today. The year is 1999. Captain Funk from Japan makes his appearance with the “Bustin’ Loose EP”. Affected by the sound of Fatboy Slim, he creates a collage of big beat, breaks, funk and surf music. With this work he gained the respect of the big beat community and Norman Cook, especially. Take down the rooftop of your car and hit the breaks with this awesome party-starter… 4/5!

Secret Lives…

Bossasonic-Club_Life Bossasonic come from Italy and in 2008 they released their first (and only) album called “Club Life”. Their love for jazz and vintage music of the 60s and the 70s is reflected in this work. 13 tracks, including some great covers, full of nu jazz and bossa nova sounds and all that wrapped up in pop and tropical aesthetics. This album defines the easy listening and the lounge culture. Don’t miss it… 4/5!
