Review: DJ Spinna – The Boogie Back

Artist: DJ Spinna
Title: The Boogie Back
Label: BBE
Genre: Disco/Nu-Disco
Format: 2xLP, CD, Digital
Buy From: Juno Records, Juno Download

BBE continue to display the crate digging ethos of previous releases with the Boogieback which sees veteran DJ Spinna hark back to his youth of growing up in 70s Brooklyn when artists were beggining to meld disco and funk to form boogie (known to some as electro funk).

This double CD compilation sees Spinna mix 16 tracks of classics from the likes of Chemise and Final Edition with the rarer tracks on the first CD, and includes two re edits done by Spinna himself.

Thankfully the sometimes overindulgent scratching of a primarily hip-hop DJ is kept to a minimum here, with Spinna wisely deciding to let the tracks breath with simple transitions instead of showing off his well recognised turntable skills.

The second CD has all the tracks in DJ friendly full length which is quite the treat as the majority of these have not been freely available for some time.
