This third installment of serious P-funk, electro R&B, nu soul, even 1980s hip-hop n’ if U wanted to exit the genre-tagging, a straight-up shake ya booty compilation of music on The Boogie Vol. 3, has fewer disappointing tracks amongst its 17 tracks than ones to literally blow your mind. Just by the kaleidoscope of colors within the artwork, U could expect a guarantee of diversity amongst both the artists n’ producers who hail from overseas spots such as Spain, New Zealand n’ Sweden, to others from the North n’ Southern regions of USA. Take for instance Positive Flow’s “Children of the Sun” feat. Heidi Vogel, which ripples such an immediate potion of electrocution into harmonies, chords n’ soul sensibilities, you’d never think w/dosages of vintage jazz elements n’ old school tones on the drum snares, that you could be stepping into the future on this one. Synthesizers strike that harsh 1980s streak of chords, while bass lines funk-up the continued noise on Colonel Red & Yam Who?’s “The Riddle”. I might need my Afro-Sheen for this one, but for others such as Rakotep on “Get Up”, Kris Mars on “Night Falls” n’ Yellowtail’s “Back to the Melody (Opolopo Remix)”, the mid-tempo creep of outer-space effects n’ galactic vocal-flows make one anticipate a full moon outside, or crave stepping inside your fav dark ‘red-lit’ bar (strip club included)! Consider this one of those records in your stash, as a rescue to keeping you far ahead in the trends-category of progressive electronic n’ funk music. And if U ever felt you’ve fallen off the map of ‘cool’, this is your ticket. SO brilliant, there’s still other incredible offerings from the likes of Al Velilla, Wagin Cookin n’ Martino. But don’t take my ‘words’ for it, listen before you convince yourself that I’m totally right. Right?
