Album Notes and Credits
Personnel includes: Monsieur Leroc (various instruments); Lazlo Loco (vocals); Andy Agricoll (guitar); Johannes Enders (alto saxophone); Don Alfredo (bass).
Digitally remastered by John Vestman (Headway Complex).
German DJ/producer Monsieur Leroc's debut album is a smooth, funky combination of various late-20th century musical idioms. Combining acid jazz, hip-hop, dub, and downtempo in equal doses, LE SLOW MOTION BOOGIE WOOGIE is an exact description of the type of music Leroc makes. Staying away from downtempo's often-easy slide into grey, depressed regions, Leroc keeps his music sultry, occasionally kinky, and always melodic.
Leroc borrows heavily from jazz as a compositional element, aping the improvisation sequence of each instrument having its say, as on the track "Jazzz." Bachelor pad music surfaces on "Une Boogie Pour Faye," and "I Think I," one of the album's most interesting tracks, steals a vocal scat and electric guitar riff straight out of post-SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER 1970s FM radio. For all intents and purposes, "I Think I" could be the "Pina Colada Song" of the future: equal parts cheese and sincere longing, played out over a thumping bassline.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (12/00, p.105) - 4 out of 5 - "...A downtempo/beat album that's smooth, funky and musical..."
CMJ (5/29/00, p.25) - "...A first-rate excursion into the realms of lo-fidelity funk that clutters and clangs like Fred Sanford's junkyard truck with a clogged flux capacitor and a Lonnie Liston Smith 8-track permanently lodged in the dash..."
