Iconic US producer Arthur Baker returns with his legendary collaborative artist project Wally Jump Jr & The Criminal Element for a piece of pure funky pleasure, ‘Feel The Music’, featuring vocalist VAS LEON.
‘Feel The Music’ started life as a slice from an obscure 70s disco track that both Wally and Arthur Baker have been cutting and looping for many years. But it was only when Arthur met London rapper VAS LEON at a gig at Brixton’s Dog Star five years ago, and VAS dropped some rhymes over the track, that the song started to feel complete. When beats duties were given to Fargn Bastarj, and bassist Graeme Cohen added his flavor, ‘Feel The Music’ was ready to do some real damage.
The dub of ‘Feel The Music’ has already received support from the likes of Groove Armada, Claptone, Horse Meat Disco, Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez, Sleepy Tom and more, and Wally Jump Jr’s previous release ‘Just Can’t Stop Dancing’ was supported by Mistajam and BBC Radio 1Xtra, Under Arthur’s other monikers and projects, his releases have received love from the likes of Annie Mac, Danny Howard, Pete Tong, Solardo, Roger Sanchez, The Black Madonna and Glitterbox.
In the old school mode of an original Sugar Hill style disco breaks cut, ‘Feel The Music’ can truly rock any party, from late summer outdoor jams all the way to New Year’s Eve throw downs.
