A fine set of funky covers from Taggy Matcher and friends

Sampler

Following several strong singles and cuts on compilations French producer BrunoPatchworks Hovart, today probably best known as Taggy Matcher, has finally dropped his debut album Singasong.

Taggy MatcherTaggy Matcher is a bass player and a guitarist and is an ace when it comes to contemporary groove-oriented music and has successfully merged raw disco and soul with jazz, hip-hop and reggae. He has for example produced a number of fine slices of innovative hip-hop/reggae mash-ups.

The organic Singasong collects eleven tracks and Taggy Matcher continues his long-standing love of recording covers and this set contains versions of tracks by the likes of The Black Keys, Neil YoungLeonard CohenBlack Sabbath and Rihanna.

The songs are funky with a discofied twist and the sound is somewhat familiar what Prince Fatty created on Hollie Cook’s excellent second album Twice.

Singer Birdy Nixon takes on Black Sabbath’s crowd-pleaser Paranoid, and does it very well, and LMK does wonders to Rihanna’s No Love Allowed, probably the best cut on the album, complete with emotive horns and pulsating organ.

Definitely a scorcher to be filed next to your worn out copy of Twice.
