2009 is shaping up to be a good year for the boogie/modern soul sound Indeed. Fresh off the heels of Dam Funk's Rhythm Tracks LP and forthcoming vocal record we see a killer entry from Manheim, Germany's First Touch. The German duo's eponymous debut is out now and features ten smoothed out, Kashif-era boogie joints. I think (hope) we are starting to see the very niche boogie genre ooze its way ever so slightly into the collective consciousness. Maybe now the mainstream R & B producers will switch it up a bit and take some props from this timeless genre. Actually at this point I would settle for everyone to simply give the autotuned vocals a well deserved rest.
