Hoochie Coochie Papa – Work Me Body
This enthusiastic hi-nrg release from Golden Soul Records recalls classic scenes from the House music scene from the late 80’ies. Work My Body – Move My Body repeats over a Moroder-like synth line and cowbelled madness on the original, while James Rod emphasizes the rolling bassline in a classic 80’ies styled Italo. Andy Buchan goes fullout Moroder and slows the whole thing down, which really manages to add a deeper energy to the remix. The breakdown on Andy’s remix is phenomenally sublime!
“We’re not sure who Hoochie Coochie Papa is – or are, as it may be more than one producer – but this first outing on Golden Soul is pretty darn good. “Work Me Body” is a deliciously sweaty and throbbing affair; a contemporary take on Italo-disco and mid 1980s Hi-NRG rich in arpeggio style synth-bass, spacey electronic melodies, sampled male vocal snippets and glassy-eyed chords. The first of two accompanying remixes comes courtesy of Spanish scene stalwart James Rod, who adds insatiable cowbells while stripping the cut back to its’ muscular, arpeggio-driven core. To round things off, man of the moment Andy Buchan re-imagines “Work Your Body” as an ear-catching tribute to Giorgio Moroder’s production work on Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”.” – Junodownload.com
