Shake-A-Leg Vol.2 - Compiled by Jerker Kluge & Tobias Kirmayer - out on Perfect.Toy
Take a professional DJ, vinyl digger and label owner, Tobias Kirmayer, add a latin/jazz producer, Jerker Kluge. Have them run together a monthly club-night in Munich, 'Shake-A-Leg'. After a few years, ask them to manifest the concept of the party on a compilation. Enrich the worldwide Funk, Soul and Jazz community with their research work. Does this sound like a formula? Yes it does. Is this volume 2 a killer recipe resulting from this formula? Yes it is!! The musical spectrum is quite large, from Hip Hop (Mighty Mocambos ft. Afrika Bambaataa) to Afrofunk (Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra, Fanga), Heavy Funk (The Qualitons, Tommy Dark) to Nu Soul (Radio Etiopia feaT. Bajka), Latin Jazz (Pucho & his Latin Soul Brothers, Cesar's Salad, Willis Jackson) to Hip Hop/Jazz hybrids (Jacknife Lee, Samp Brothers), Soul (CJ. Leach) to Dancefloor Jazz (Deep Jazz)… The two German selectors are music pros with GREAT taste, there's no filler to be found here - only 74mn of pure communicative grooviness!! So, is this compilation recommended? Heavily.
