Boogie Angst is proud to present the first EP by newly found duo Marcel Vogel & Lyma.Games Change is a collection of songs written about the wonders of childbirth, and how this can affectthe relationship that made the child happen in the first place. Drenched in a healthy serving of Soul andFunk, Games Change is the groovy parent's anthem, and perhaps a roadmap for those about to becomeone. Sometimes the themes are wrapped in innuendo, but often times they pronounce it blatantly in-your-face.Having released two stellar singles prior to this full EP offering, Marcel Vogel and LYMA have quicklysparked interest in the appropriate corners of the music world, with their already signature brand ofgenre-mashing greatness.DJ'ing across the globe, remixing the likes of Hot Chip, Phenomenal Handclap Band and Flamingo Pier,or A&R'ing releases on his own record label Lumberjacks In Hell, Marcel Vogel is the good vibe guru.Fueled by the dance floor connection, Marcel offers up an eclectic blend of Disco, Soul, House andGospel. Amsterdam-based LYMA is an RnB and Soul powerhouse. Also, part of the LIKEMINDSensemble, LYMA skirts the genre borders with his eclectic mix of moveable goodness.The EP opener Funk Money launches the manifesto with an expensive, forward-moving groove.Exuberant synth stabs bounce off highly static Electro-like leads-moving it into prime-time, drive-timeradio territory. After opening up in exceptional fashion, we find the sexual breakout single Head Back InThe Game. An enticing mid-tempo'd bounce lures us in, right before a vocal delivery reminiscent of aplethora of 70s Soul crooners seals the deal. Syrupy chordal movements guide us through severalswanky passages describing the willingness of sexual resurgence and a desire for a sexual return toform, so to say. Next we find the previously released Keep On Stepping. On this, a luxuriouslysyncopated and heavily saturated bass line lays underneath a washed out vocal cut. After which, a guitarriff reminiscent of early Prince makes friends with a rather ambiguous synth stab. All whilst the hypnoticanalog hi-hat pattern fills in the blanks. The second part of the song introduces some interesting AcidHouse inspired elements, but firmly planting them in their own world. On Cruisin' we find a hypnotic,almost sample-esque motif, over which the tasteful Acid House reference rears it's head again. Round,but sharp in message, Cruisin' is a metaphor for taking the best feeling directions in life. Pop My Cherrydrops all the innuendo and gets straight to the point; sexual prowess front and center. The TeddyRileyesque closing tune is a perfect summary of the EPs mission statement, in that the duo holds noholes barred.Overall, Games Change is ferociously lustful, sexually charged and smooth-as-butter. It just knows howto twist, bop, wine and dine us into loving Marcel Vogel & Lyma even more-even though they didn't getmuch sleep last night.Tracklisting:A1. Head Back in the GameA2. Keep on Stepping (Extended)B1. Funk MoneyB2. B2B3. Popping My C.H.E.R.R.Y.
