Daz-I-Kue (a.k.a. BB Boogie) helped make an indelible mark on dance music during his tenure with revered U.K. broken beat crew Bugz In The Attic. Now based in America, he’s continued to innovate as a producer, musician and songwriter, collaborating with supremely talented artists including Kenya, Donnie, Trina Broussard, Anthony David, Avery Sunshine, Kai Alce and DJ Kemit.
Currently dividing his time between Atlanta and Nashville, Daz-I-Kue just dropped “Goddess Deluxe,” a soulful disco-fueled romp with Kavita on International Women’s Day on his I-Kue Recordings.
We checked in with the man himself to find out which five tracks are currently in heavy rotation.
1. Kavita – Goddess Deluxe (BB Boogie Original Mix)
Kavita has one of those ethereal voices that just hits your spirit, giving love and light to all the everyday goddesses that support us in our daily lives. It was a pleasure to work on this funky disco stomper in which Kavita’s voice fitted like a glove.
2. Ezel ft Rona Ray – Hard To Stay Away (Original Mix)
The Dominican Republic-based producer just keeps getting better and better with each release and this tune just shows his production, musicianship and mixing skills to the max. A multifaceted talent who will survive this game of music for sho.
3. Daniel March – All Is Not Lost
Daniel is a young Australian singer/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter who I had the pleasure to work with and will be working with again in the future. He just exudes deep soulfulness, be it on an uptempo track, or in this case, a beautiful guitar-laden acoustic vibe.
4 Reel People ft Eric Roberson – Save A Lil Love (Terry Hunter Remix)
Reel People never disappoint and always keep in step with the current vibes without being cheesy and always with integrity. For me, they always bring it with the musicality and the songwriting. This release is no exception. Plus, add to that the great Eric Roberson on the vocal/writing duties and Terry Hunter on the remix, this is pure FIRE.
5. Marc Mac – Brudda Fela
As well as being into the soulful, I’m also partial to some b-line business. And this Bruk goodness from 4 Hero’s pioneer Marc Mac’s Ah-Free-Ka EP, is a fine example of what gets me shuffling like a mad nutter on the dance floor (or at the moment, the front room… hehe!).
