As per Magoo, with whom we managed to speak during this busy period of his career, he worked on this album during last 3 years, slowly little by little as he’s been also working for other artists as well. There are 4 other contributor to this album: Tony Massera (drum machines programmer on many songs), Fabrice Baffet (Guitars), Christophe Tellez (Saxophones), and Heryo (his French Kiss collaborator) who sings “Let’s Have A Boogie” together with Magoo (while the latter wrote the lyrics and the melody of this song). All the rest album was done by Magoo himself (Lead vocals, backgrounds vocals, all keyboards, programmings & mix).
Needless to say that this great piece of work is a real treat for all funk/boogie/disco connoisseurs to really know what’s up in the genre.

Moniquea has already established herself as one of the foremost female artists in the modern funk scene with her 2014 MoFunk Records debut album “Yes No Maybe”. With her follow-up, she continues exploring and expanding upon the boogie/modern soul sound of her debut, and at the same time, ventures bravely into a new sound inspired by the new wave and synth-pop sounds of the 80’s. Thus, the album title: Blackwavefunk. Executively produced by XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster, the album was mainly produced by the one and only XL Middleton with a little exception of one track “Knew It” which was produced by Turquoise Summers while other two tracks “Why Can’t You See” and “Check Your Sources” were co-produced Eddy Funkster and Moniquea respectively. By all means, this is a great modern funk album which is gonna turn classic after some time.
After dropping their first 2 releases last year, Neon Finger, the up and coming label from Madrid (Spain), is hitting it hard by releasing their next two references and both by the already well-known Indonesia’s own Midnight Runners. It’s definitely the great news for all the disco/boogie/synth-funk lovers to have two Midnight Runner’s releases at a time, both made on vinyl: 1. Rare Essense – the LP in a very beautiful sleeve printed in offset; 2. Disco Panorama – 7″ double sider, which serves a very nice addition to the LP.
Those who already know Midnight Runners know that their name speaks of itself and they can’t really go wrong. Both records consist of great tunes professionally crafted by them and would be definitely appreciated by their fans and supporters.
Both records were made in limited pressing of 300 copies each so don’t waste time and grab your copies while the stock lasts @ NEON FINGER OFFICIAL BANDCAMP.
Stay tuned to the next references by the Neon Finger label as they’re keep growing and might surprise you again with their upcoming releases!
