Review: Smoove/Turrell – Beggarman

Artist: Smoove/Turrell
Title: Beggarman
Label: Jalapeno
Genre: Disco/Nu-Disco
Format: CD
Buy From: Juno Download

When the final copies of their first 7” collaboration started fetching £150 in eBay, Geordie duo Smoove/Turrell knew they were doing something right.

The resulting album Antique Soul – released earlier this year on Jalapeno – positively brimmed with the pair’s passion for northern soul and funk. Now they’ve returned with a remix package for “Beggarman”, one of many highlights from the debut album.

The pair’s funk-infused disco is given the remix treatment by Crazy P, Basement Freaks and Tim Shaw, while Smoove chips in with his own rework of the track. A real treat for the digital crate digger.
