After the success of their last single “Hard Massage” on the now defunct Catskills Projects, Chevy jump ship to the ever-ready Jack To Phono for another slice of low-slung funk and beats. Taking sweeping orchestral samples, rolling basslines, heavy drums, hard hammond & haunting live instrumentation, Blue Boogaloo is sure to get the hairs on the back of your neck standing to attention and turn a few shakes on the dancefloor. Its Conan The Destroyer meets The Streets of San Francisco, or imagine how Dirty Dirty Harry would be if Lee Van Cleef got the job. That’s Blue Boogaloo.
On the flip, the talented Mr Tombee, fresh from the success of this “Amelie In Dub” single, cuts and scratches the track into a completely new composition with its chopped up beats, turntable trickery and vocal samples (you might spot a certain Radio 1 DJ in there somewhere!).
“A fortuitous hook up for Jack To Phono, who relieve CH3VY from the hands of Catskills for this dynamic seven-inch, that punches well above its own weight. Constructed from the sampled soul of 70¹s TV scores and carrying a distinctly funked out easy listening vibe Blue Boogaloo has the nerve of cold steel wrapped in mystery, murder and suspense.”
