Without any further due, 'The Boogie Volume 2'. A modern day enlightenment of the boogie era continued. A musical wonderland where accidental hipsters aren't afraid to drop a guitar solo over a drum machine groove and synths deemed archaic rebomb the airwaves in full effect! Uncompromisable artists unite and unleash cosmic 80's & 90's throwbacks and futurist funk that rip apart all predefined notions of what new boogie is. Selected with a whole lot of love and care, underground heroes and unknown contemporaries forge from Munich to LA, Stockholm to Cape Town, London to The Bay, blurring the lines between Electro, Minneapolis Funk, Rap, R&B & House.
Besides celebrated TDR artists like Amalia, Blaktroniks, Colonel Red, Opolopo, SoulParlor, Stan Smith, Swede:art and Vindahl, the compilation also holds many unreleased gems from boogie ambassadors such as Dam-Funk, AD Bourke, B. Bravo and more. On mic duty, essential artists Bantu Soul, Erik Rico, Psaul, Oddisee and Reggie B shine amongst others. The video premiere of Amalia's next single from her TDR album 'Art Slave' accompanies the release, bringing you Nu Jack Swing like you've never heard it before. Past, present, the future is now. Welcome back to 'The Boogie'!
