Single of the Day – Bionic Boogie – Tiger Tiger (Feel Good For A While)
Bionic Boogie was a disco studio group produced by Gregg Diamond in the late 70s. Featuring a certain Luther Vandross on vocals, the group only released a few singles and albums. Diamond is probably best known for writing and producing Andrea True Connection’s saucy disco smash ‘More, More, More’, but he also contributed to David Bowie’s Young Americans album in 1975.
The ‘Boogie (as I like to call them), recorded slick, soulful, groove-led disco. With sublime production and arrangement from Diamond, the band’s output still sounds sparkling and fresh today.
Released in 1979, Tiger Tiger (Feel Good For A While) is a purring disco stomper. With big drums, grooving guitar licks and a really fruity bassline, the track is a secret weapon of DJ and crate-digger extraordinaire Mark Seven, who included it on his much lauded mix for Oki-Ni.
So good, it will get you growling. Grrr… or something.
