Great E.P. with the very prolific and creative Marcel ! i like the kind of slow motion from the crooner Khalil but the boogie remix is killer too !
Favorite track: Dance The Blues Away (BB Boogie Remix).
On the latest Lumberjacks missive Marcel Vogel invites one of the strongest house vocalists of modern times, Khalil Anthony, to lend his distinctive croon to a loose-limbed slice of low-riding funk. "Dance The Blues Away" is a gutsy, full-bodied production that shows off Vogel's instrumental skills at their strongest, and Anthony's vocal rolls on in the many-layered mix perfectly. BB Boogie injects a little disco stomp to the track for the first remix on the 12", while Julien Dyne gets to turn out a remix and a dub. Both Dyne's efforts tap into a Detroit house feeling, all dusty sample loops and a laid back, smoky mood. It's a record made up of killer soul-soaked house music from start to finish.

Plenty of worldly deep and ethnic house with a few poke-outs of jazz and techno, this comp holds much of much-needed material for today's life. Rarely do you come across stuff that is not only enjoyable to dance to, but can also heal one's own wounds from time, especially with the excellent minimal, laidback melody Local Artist "Dreams." Matter-of-fact lyrics spoken by a gentle voice and backed by tranquil drums and organ really can melt away all stress that crops up in our days... pC
