I came across to a couple of good Roger Troutman clips on YouTube with great freestyle talkbox action by the master himself. Damn, he was such a genius with that thing plus an all-around cool cat.
I recorded a sequel for my early 2010 mix, Love Attack. Volume 2 takes of a bit smoother with deep 80's soul cuts before getting into foot stomping boogie. Things go as usual, lots of familiar cuts from the blog with other quality joints to go with them. All mixed with love, not skills, so bear with me.

The first Love Attack mix is now also available for download at SoundCloud so grab it if you haven't already.
You're So Right For Me (1977) is disco at its finest. The sound of the golden era of disco with a foot stomping finger snapping beat, solid instrumentation and great vocals which make those cheesy lyrics sound just so right.
Eastside Connection with some great singles (e.g. You're So Right For Me and Frisco Disco) is an incisive example of the rise and fall of (mainstream) disco. The group released massive disco bombs and got some commercial success as well but as soon as disco was out of mainstream, Eastside Connection disappeared like so many contemporaries without leaving a mark. Well, we have their hits on rainbow colored vinyl so why complain.

The weekend is here and it's one of the hottest day of the summer so far and I feel like cooling out. I think I'll put Private Joy's smooth synth boogie banger Coolin Out on repeat and sip some GTs on the balcony while waiting for the kick off of the second 1/4 final. Life is good, isn't?
