BOOGALOO Club 7th ANNIVERSARYPublished on Sabato, 20 Marzo 2010
ATTENZIONE IL BOOGALOO CLUB ANNIVERSARY di stasera è ANNULLATO! Il Connie Douglas è stato chiuso della polizia Annonaria ieri notte. Nonostante gli sforzi fatti ci è stato impossibile riproggrammare la serata in un altro locale per questa sera. Siamo costretti ad annullare la serata. Ci scusiamo con tutti, ma veramente non dipende dalla nostra volontà. Riprogrammeremo l'ANNIVERSARY con Lucinda Slim in un altra data... presto tutte le info on line.
Since 2003 BOOGALOO the party organised by Record Kicks has kept Milan movin' and groovin' to the sounds of the rawest funk, soul and rare groove 45s played by the most representative DJs of the contemporary scene ( Andy Smith, Keb Darge, Eddie Piller, Snowboy, Florian Keller, just to name a few), some of whom were coming to Italy for the first time. It was this lucky clubnight to have inspired the Let's Boogaloo compilation series, a Record Kicks bestseller with over 20,000 copies sold worldwide. Some time has passed since the release of the last number compiled by DJ Andy Smith, but now the new volume Let's BOOGALOO vol.5 is about to see the light of day. Renown record record collector, DJ & founder of the great Jazzman Records Gerald Short has dropped another "all killers no fillers" selection scheduled to drop on April 19th on CD/LP/digital download... watch out, full details coming.
In the meantime BOOGALOO celebrates its 7 year anniversary at Connie Douglas Club in Milan on Saturday March 20th, with special guest from London LUCINDA SLIM (Zap Mama / Deep Funk). Lucinda starts her recording career at only 19 years of age when Marie Dualne involves her in the afro/world project ZAP MAMA. Produced by David Byrne's Luaka Bop label, ZAP MAMA have sold milions of records, toured the world and collaborated with musicians such as Youssou N'Dour, Sergio Mendez, Erykah Badu and The Roots. In parallel to her activity as a singer Lucinda is also a very respected funk & soul DJ. She shares the decks with sir. Keb Darge as resident DJ of " Deep Funk", the legendary weekly clubnight at Madame Jojos in Soho, and again it is with Mr.Darge that she compiled the new volume of the compilation " This is DJ's Choice" recently released for the German UNIQUE label.
Joining Lucinda on the wheels of steel will be, as always, resident DJ NICK RECORDKICKS, whereas the warm-up will be courtesy of the other 2 residents of BOOGALOO, that is CLAUDIO AUDIO and SIR VINER. The first 15 to arrive will receive a free compilation!
USE IT! BEFORE YOU LOOSE IT!
