DJ Format’s Psych Out is a compilation of records from around the world that Format
WISHES he could play at clubs every weekend. Some of the tracks are hard to
categorise…kind of psychedelic, kind of funky, kind of crazy…but most have unmistakable
blend of distorted electric guitars, driving basslines and pounding drums. Maybe you didn’t
think it was possible for “Foxy Lady” to be played any harder…but 49th Blue Streak did it.
“Hava Nagila” never really seemed likely to lend itself to a psychedelic reworking…but The
Quests from Singapore thought differently. In Germany, The CT Four Plus did away with
boring tradition and instead praised God with their electric guitars. Advertising executives in
France thought it best to spread the word of their new chocolate bar by commissioning the
Bana Pop Band to make a cool 7″ flexi disc record. These are just a few examples of how
the boundaries of music were being pushed in the late ’60s & early ’70s when most of these
exciting recordings were made.
In DJ Format’s own words:
The idea for this compilation came about because of my search for a rare psych/funk 7″
that isn’t even included here! My friend DJ Oneofakind played me the said record and I
totally lost my mind. Some months later after a lot of asking around and searching online, a
copy turned up on for a painful amount of money. I contacted the seller to ask
a couple of questions and it turned out I was talking to Jake Holloway, BBE’s in-house
designer. I’d loosely known Jake for a few years through mutual friends so we quickly
arranged a time to meet and take care of business. Jake told me he’d offered the 7″ to a
few other DJ/collector friends but they’d passed on it as it was ‘too heavy’ for them. This got
us talking about my love for psych records with a funky slant and I explained my frustration
at buying so many records that fit that description, that were ‘too heavy’ to play at my typical
DJ gigs. Jake had the perfect solution: “why don’t you do a compilation of funky, fuzzed-out
psych stuff for BBE?”.

Various – Destination: Boogie
Tuesday, June 11th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Destination: Boogie

Image: 1581718 What was the true sound of the underground in UK Clubland in the early 80’s? At a time when most young people from inner cities chose their musical paths – soul-head, reggae, indie or rock – and stuck with them ’til they knew better, BOOGIE WAS THE BIG THING in the UK’s (mainly) black clubs.

Now, Z Records is releasing a gatefold double vinyl pack of the influential Destination Boogie album that was first released back in 2006 but only as a double CD.

As Sean P says: “Its taken a long-time for Boogie to surface from the underground, its largely been ignored, or regarded as Disco’s poor cousin – perhaps too electronic…too black even but it kick-started a musical grounds well which would see club-music topping the charts all over the World again. The post-disco era represented by BOOGIE was a turbulent and creative time for independent dance music in general and one where the early trends in music technology are easy to spot”.

So how, you may ask, does Boogie differ from its glitzier forbearer DISCO?

Well its still a continuation of disco, though dressed up differently – for example, as you’ll hear on the CD, its rhythms weren’t always the ubiquitous four-to-the-floor.

Rather Boogie is all about the groove – tempo down, or up, the rhythm has to groove. It’s a heady blend of disco, funk, soul/R&B, jazz and electronic, fused by and for the party-heads of the day.

Among the gems unearthed on this DOUBLE CD comes the quirky synth pop of Karen Young, Lowrell Simon’s fat-bottomed love odyssey “Love Massage”, Carol Sylvian’s beefy gospel funk “Think” and Color’s life-affirming R&B stormer “Am I Gonna Be the One?”.

Elsewhere the compilation showcases the creative and brilliant mixing techniques of top notch producers Shep Pettibone, Butch Ingram and Wayne Braithwaite –alchemists who turned even basic tracks into the kind of complex sonic masterpieces still capable of turning heads even now.

LP 1: Mid Air – Ease Out / Samson & Delilah – I Can Feel Your Love Slippin’ Away / W.A.G.B. Band – I Can Get You Over / Lisa Hill – I Am On The Real Side / UDM – To Please You
LP 2: Brenda Watts – Love Treatment / The Last Poets – Long Enough / Electric Smoke – Freak It Out / Radiance – You’re My Number 1 / Lowrell Simon – Love Massage Available from 07.06.2013
