New Boogie Mann: Who Is Next

Who is next? Boogie Mann has been around in Japan’s juke community, even offering something approaching mainstream awareness a couple years back. But now here is a chance for more international exposure, via Traxman’s label Tekk DJZ. Who Is Next offers four sturdy tracks showcasing one of the Japanese scene’s most vital creators. The title track wastes no time getting to the skittery goodness, using vocal samples and electric guitar lines to generate a hyperactive little number. From there, its a showcase of Boogie Mann’s many sides, from the self-explanatory “Acid Track” (well, OK, it’s actually got a little more bounce to it, while also boasting plenty of the titular house sound) to the funk dissection of “Sleep Walkin.'” Get it here, or listen below.
