Format: 12" Vinyl
Catalogue No.: DELICIEUSE025
Release Date: 03 Sep 2021
Genre: Electronic / Disco / Afro Beat
* Newcomer Izzy Wise delivers a wonderful funk and afrobeat upcoming EP Keep It Movin’, right before summer, on french label Délicieuse Records. After releasing on japanese institution Mule Musiq, the producer hits us with four serious disco-house burners.
"AKA", one of his most disco afro-beat tunes, is a straight-up boat party anthem with happy vibes. Huge brass instrumentation, strong 4/4 beat and a vocoded vocal are raising a tension towards the entire track which is bridging the gap between Fela Kuti and Moodymann.
On remix duties, french legend Uptown Funk Empire, the man of many projects (Voilaaa, Mr President, Patchworks) brings a dirty disco touch to the Keep It Movin’ single. On the other hand, Colombian sensation Bosq brings a latin flavoured take to the record single.
The San Francisco-based multiinstrumentalist and DJ has spent the last two decades literally exploring a world of music. Between working-out dance floors with the rotating door of eclectic musicians in Afrolicious, Braza, and his own global dance party Hi Life, to his own far-flung adventures DJing, playing in groups, and making recordings with people around Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean. His passion for live percussion and horns brings excitement and warmth to the sound system.
