The Boogie Man – Shake Your Body EP – Release 20th Oct 2014

Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel team up once again with UK singer Andre Espeut for the second release of “The Boogie Man”.

Crafting their sound and production to the most optimun level so far, The Boogie Man gang deliver it’s ultimate floor filler where Kool & The Gang meets Parliament Funkalic for the opening track of the EP -”Shake Your Body” while Jazz Funk meets Disco for the flip side with and uplifting groove called “Keep On Moving” that brings memories of David Bendeth’s immortal Feel The Real and many other references.

Colourful melodies and arrangements flow from the moment the needle hits the groove, driving the funky bass line and steady beat through a journey of many harmonic changes that don’t let you other alternative but dance and enjoy.

“Yup!! Tasty!! Feeling both these tunes!!” Patrick Forge
