On the latest Lumberjacks missive Marcel Vogel invites one of the strongest house vocalists of modern times, Khalil Anthony, to lend his distinctive croon to a loose-limbed slice of low-riding funk.
“Dance The Blues Away” is a gutsy, full-bodied production that shows off Vogel’s instrumental skills at their strongest, and Anthony’s vocal rolls on in the many-layered mix perfectly. BB Boogie injects a little disco stomp to the track for the first remix on the 12″, while Julien Dyne gets to turn out a remix and a dub. Both Dyne’s efforts tap into a Detroit house feeling, all dusty sample loops and a laid back, smokey mood. It’s a record made up of killer soul-soaked house music from start to finish.
