Some reviews...


"Man I’ve been bumping this all week. Call me old school, but Melbourne DJ/ producer Sard Boogie‘s fourth and latest LP Funky Walker, Dirty Talker is certainly one of the doper full length efforts I’ve heard all year. Imagine, if you will, a nine track mixture of super-disco breakin’ and mainly instrumental hip-hop cuts with a couple of more reflective efforts where the analogue love is palpable. And I’m not just talking about the crackle and hiss of samples. You know that thing you get on a lot of modern breaks productions – all top and bottom end and nothing in between? Doesn’t happen here – Sard got his boogie firing on all frequencies. The centrepiece of the LP consists of two tracks – former single Sweeter Little Thang and next track The Item. The former is the very definition of b-boy disco breaks – wah-wah guitars, fat bass, crisp breaks and a seventies funk hook while the latter comes at you with pumping a uptempo break, old school hook hip-hop and funk rock guitars. SB’s no slouch on the mic either, busting out a few bars in the middle of first track proper, Peep Show – which also kicks off with a sample from a very well known hit of half a decade ago – fact fans. He also picks up the mic for hectic uprock hip-hop closer Boogie Shakes – which arrives all too quickly because quite frankly the chopped up b-boy seventies/ eighties summer vibe of the album is over all too quickly. One to file along with kindred spirit K Delight. If you’re lucky, you might still get your hands on one of the limited run of hundred copies on vinyl. More please."

"Cool, confident and coated in 70s sample class; Sard Boogie develops his reputation as one of the more subversive, jazzier producers in the nu-funk movement with his fourth full lengther Funky Walker Dirty Talker. From the quirky key meanders on "5 6 Keyboards" to the early 90s hip-hop heaviness of "Peep Show" via the speedier, bloc-rocking swing-out "The Item", there's a great range on show, held together with a consistent theme of nifty chops and fun samples. Easily his most accomplished album yet"
