Boomkat Product Review:
It's an all too common misconception that Germans have no funk. Take a trip to the clubs of Munich, Cologne, Hamburg or Berlin and you'll find a deep house and disco heritage to rival anywhere outside of the US, proving a lineage from disco, groove and funk from the 60's to now. Heck, even Boney M lived there! Wherever there's funk, there's a healthy female representation and this comp looks at those Funky Fräuleins of 1968-78, including names like Su Kramer, Marianne Mendt, Heidi Brühl, Olivia Molina, Hildegard Knef and Jane Morel. For the German speakers this comp will probably be more fun, but if like us you find the language to beautifully lend itself to song you can appreciate the pure aesthetic value. Heidelinde Weis' cool and measured delivery on 'Hans Emmerlich' is not lost through translation, the girly quirks and light Bossa Nova groove can be understood by any dancefloor, while the Mexican accented delivery of Olivia Molina's 'Das Zahlenspiel' is a delightful disco nugget that's not going to crop up on many other comps, trust us. The merry pomp of Hildegard Knef's 'Ich Wart Auf Die Nacht', delivered by Germany's second most popular singer (to Marlene Dietrich) is another highlight, but the best cuts come from the Munich sound of Peggy March's 'Dancin' Daddy', and Roberta Kelly's 'Sunburst', adorned with Moog and cowbells galore for the real deal. Schön!
