R.A.W. (Russians at Work)

A 11 track house album (53m 27s) — released September 1st 2008 on Freestyle Records

Valique has been busy making music since the beginning of the 90's. Ranging from ''live-performed heavy jungle'' to ''jazzed up ethnic soundtracks'', it is only within the last few years that he has gained the title of #1 Russian funk / soul producer - and for good reason! The first 12'' ''Taking Your Seat'' received massive support from DJ's worldwide, and while his remix of ''Thirty Three'' by ''The New Mastersounds'' (from re:mixed'' on Record Kicks) joined the ''Best of Year'' list on Craig Charles' acclaimed BBC 6 Music Funk and Soul Show. Following several digital releases and the second 12'' single ''(Let Go) Trouble Girl'', Valique presents R.A.W. (Russians At Work) - 11 dance-floor minded tracks, including vocal collaborations with Fanny Franklin of Ubiquity Records and Sofi Ocran. Anything from horns to IskraDisco synths can be found on R.A.W, as Valique delivers a DJ-friendly view of modern disco-funk. ''Good 12'' from this guy. Like the vocal tune. A groovy 12'' in all!'' - Diesler ''Reminds me a little of Fort Knox Five!'' - Boca 45

Some great cut and paste party beats! - Diesler
