Games Change

A 5 track nu-disco ep (22m 6s) — released March 24th 2023 on Boogie Angst

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 affect
the relationship that made the child happen in the first place. Drenched in a healthy serving of Soul and
Funk, Games Change is the groovy parent's anthem, and perhaps a roadmap for those about to become
one. Sometimes the themes are wrapped in innuendo, but often times they pronounce it blatantly inyour-

Having released two stellar singles prior to this full EP offering, Marcel Vogel and LYMA have quickly
sparked interest in the appropriate corners of the music world, with their already signature brand of
genre-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 and
Gospel. Amsterdam-based LYMA is an RnB and Soul powerhouse. Also, part of the LIKEMINDS
ensemble, 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-time
radio territory. After opening up in exceptional fashion, we find the sexual breakout single Head Back In
The Game. An enticing mid-tempo'd bounce lures us in, right before a vocal delivery reminiscent of a
plethora of 70s Soul crooners seals the deal. Syrupy chordal movements guide us through several
swanky passages describing the willingness of sexual resurgence and a desire for a sexual return to
form, so to say. Next we find the previously released Keep On Stepping. On this, a luxuriously
syncopated and heavily saturated bass line lays underneath a washed out vocal cut. After which, a guitar
riff reminiscent of early Prince makes friends with a rather ambiguous synth stab. All whilst the hypnotic
analog hi-hat pattern fills in the blanks. The second part of the song introduces some interesting Acid
House 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 its head again. Round,
but sharp in message, Cruisin' is a metaphor for taking the best feeling directions in life. Pop My Cherry
drops all the innuendo and gets straight to the point; sexual prowess front and center. The Teddy
Rileyesque closing tune is a perfect summary of the EPs mission statement, in that the duo holds no
holes barred.

Overall, Games Change is ferociously lustful, sexually charged and smooth-as-butter. It just knows how
to twist, bop, wine and dine us into loving Marcel Vogel & LYMA even more—even though they didn't get
much sleep last night.
