(full text at http://yearofmixtapes.blogspot.com/2010/05/week-52-boogie.html) ...Either way, I am gonna keep this blog active, posting every week or two with mini-mixes from me, guest mixes from others, and the occasional full-length mixtape from myself. (For all the people who requested specific mixtapes that I never got around to, there's still time!) So keep your eyes peeled guys...

Anyway, this week's subject is Boogie, which is really kind of a vague term (and used more in the UK than the US), but is really the best description for this kind of music: funky, late-1970s disco that draws as much from jazz traditions as it does from R&B, and has the kind of slippery, walking basslines that make you think of the roller rink. I really love this stuff, and figured I'd cover it in this last tape.

Oh, and I purposefully left off "Boogie Wonderland" by Earth, Wind, & Fire and "Boogie Oogie Oogie" by A Taste of Honey because I'm really bored with them.
