Boogie Angst is proud to announce Boogie Beats Volume 3; the third instalment in their critically acclaimed, club-orientated compilation series. Known for showcasing fresh new talent as well as industry titans, Boogie Beats has become a well-loved showcase for both dance floors and home playlists alike.

Opening track Fittipaldi is the previously released Euro heater by label heads Kraak & Smaak. Magnificent Clavinet parts sway hand-in-hand against the diced wall of electronic goodness. Classic sounds brought into the present-day. Named after the famous Brazilian 70s F1 driver, Fittipaldi is a nostalgic, nu-disco groover ready to bridge the classic-to-modern gap in any club this summer.

Next up is a Steven Kimber song, by way of a gorgeous remix crafted by Drop Out Orchestra. Drop Out Orchestra are the reigning edit kings of the soulful disco scene. Taking on the Birmingham-based vocalist and producer Steven Kimber’s I Wanna Be The One, they managed to turn it into a brilliant yacht-house infused bouncer. Beach-proof from the get go, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear this one tear up some island clubs this summer.

Third in line for Boogie Beats Volume 3 is South-African producer King Mutapa with the ever so shiny Gimme That Funk. Heavily influenced by 70s Disco, Funk and Boom Bap, King Mutapa expertly sprinkles funk chops over the shiniest groove we’ve heard in ages. Moving through several parts of the song, it’s clear to hear that Mutapa’s the King of bounce and will steadily continue this trajectory into his fresh career.

Detroit-based producer Pontchartrain (of Kolours LTD., Delusions of Grandeur, Whiskey Disco, Toy-Tonics and Razor-n-Tape fame a.o.) rain steps up to the plate with Cheap Plants; a bouncy and classy house number which could only have come out of the Motor City. Exuberating percussion parts sway ear-to-ear, whilst the mesmerizing piano stabs stay ever present, providing a steady backbone for the menagerie of lively synth swirls.

New, mysterious Californian indie-vibed and post-disco duo FUTVRST light up the night with The Feeling. Swirling disco chops under laid with an infectious bassline, all dancing around an irresistible arpeggio sequence. FUTVRST takes us back to the blog house days with this one, and we can’t wait to hear what’s next for them.

The five songs are rounded off with the longer, original mix of Fittipaldi, plus an extended version of the I Wanna Be The One remix—all set to suit your DJ needs.

Listening through the featured tracks it’s clear to hear that the compilations are always a brilliant indicator of the label’s variety and broad scope in the electronic music scene, whilst always being undeniably funky and danceable. With exciting times ahead for the Netherlands-based label, the Boogie Beats series always feel like a little homecoming.
