Lay-Far, On Taking Communication To A Whole New Level, With His New Album – “How I Communicate”.

Cover

 

The wait is over, the long anticipated 2nd album, “How I Communicate”, from Lay-Far, released on Local Talk records, dropped into your ears with a devastating splash. You know the saying “made to make your mouth water”?! In this instance it’s a perfect example of the truth, with Lay-Far’s productions there is always music to nourish the soul.

“How I Communicate”, is a stunning arrangement exploring the many ways an artist can communicate with it’s listener.The album plays like a story, with Lay-Far as the story teller, he weaves intricate tales with each track. Interspersed between the ethereal lightness of House and the Disco explorers tales. It lays the foundations that reflect the current changes within dance music by exploring deep soulful rhythms. To complete the story, Lay-Far has enlisted the help of several well known characters from the likes of; Ashley Beedle & Darren Morris, Sean McCabe, Mark De Clive Lowe, Magic Number and Ricky Reid to name just a few. Each character takes a bow after lending their unique qualities to the tale. The entire album is held by the carefully selected narrations that adjoin the tracks.

If you are looking for a stand out track, there are plenty to chose from; whether it be the devastating beauty of ‘Like The First Time’, featuring the raw talent of Ross Hillard, Magic Number, or deep sea dive into ‘Slope’, with its uplifting groove and aquatic melodies.’Mystical Rhythms’, resurrects the love of the Broken Beat, both Lay-Far and Sean McCabe drop the realness on this one.

‘How I communicate’, is one of those albums that comes around every once in a while, that restores faith in the music scene. Do you recall your favourite story as a child? Take that same joy and excitement, place it into adult ears, press play and there you have it. Well that’s my humble opinion.

Boogie Cafe Records – Bringing The Beat back

After weeks of seemingly endless torrential rain and gales force winds, there was an unexpected lull. On Saturday 15th February  all the ingredients were added to create  the perfect night out.

Take: one brilliant full moon and place firmly in the night sky, and a splash of no running for cover to avoid the latest downpour. Add a generous helping of revellers who want to dance the night away,  pour into The Big Chill Bar; not forgetting to add the secret ingredient the Boogie Café Record Launch Party. The end result is a throbbing mass of happy dancing  groovers, all moving together to the sound of the Boogie café edits.

Boogie café records is the brain child of Jimmy the Twin and Naughty Alex and Hero 73; together they are breathing new life in to classic edits. Music lovers can expect to hear Boogie, Funk, Disco and Raregrooves flavours, all given a modern day make over.

Jimmy The Twin offers up the first  12″ release ,  “Midnight Mamma”, which consists of two Boogie bangers, “Midnight Shuffle”, and “Bad Mamma Jamma”.

“Midnight Shuffle”, is a re-edit, taken from the 1982 Japanese outfit named Cosmos.  The first thing that hits you is the funky bass riff, followed by the sweetest piano played over the punctuating drum beats.

While “Bad Mamma Jamma”, stays true to Carl Carlton original. Incorporating more upbeat  dance floor flourishes, making this track every bit as relevant today as it was then.

This soon to be released record is strictly limited edition, only 200 are available.

It appears that Boogie Café Records are on a mission to bring Boogie Wonderland back to the dance floor.
