Samizdat - too much boogie Together mix

BARRELHOUSE.jpg

Let us take you back... way, way, back...

Everybody's got the boogie and always has!

The boogie, along with the stomp and the Cuban clave, formed the foundations of much of the music we listen and dance to today.

Beat-up barrelhouse pianos were being pounded in the Louisiana bayou and in Texas back in the 1870s, Beethoven channelled the boogie as far back as the 1820s and exploded in the 1940s.

Aural historian and selector Samizdat has made us this special mix - a rocking and rolling excursion through the 1940s to the 1960s, from Memphis to Skaville on a steam-driven boogie train.

Look out for more gems from his extensive vaults at Together 2018.
