Image: 1606141 “Nostalgic, soulful and, of course, boogie-woogie.” That’s how
Belgian DJ producer Boogie Belgique (AKA Oswald Cromheecke)
describes the enticing combination of styles and sources from
different decades that make up his music. Taking vintage inspirations,
most notably from swing and jazz eras, and merging them with
contemporary beats and textures is the young producer’s forte. This
is pleasingly evident on Volta, the latest Boogie Belgique album for
the Cold Busted label.
“Jungle Law” gives a glimpse into Boogie Belgique’s sonic palette.
Tough hip hop beats and funky live guitar follow an intro of jungle
ambience as a trumpet presents the melody. Soon some swingy
big band jazz enters the song in an almost ghostly manner, while
the insistent beat keeps the dance floor moving. Album opener
“Go Slow” shows a different side to the coin giving the listener an
uptempo broken beat rhythm, some bouncy bass guitar, snippets
of string loops, and a lovely, forlorn vocal line that echoes the past.
It’s a beautiful concoction, and Boogie Belgique delivers on many
aspects of this style throughout his eleven track album. Volta is a
satisfying trip in an aural time machine.
