about

Having produced hits for artists such as Ultra Nate, Crystal Waters and Mass Order and remixing tracks by Michael Jackson, Erykah Badu, Angie Stone and Lenny Kravitz as well as knocking out underground classics under the names of 33 1/3 Queen and Those Guys, it’s no surprise that The Basement Boys are regarded as pioneers of American dance music. Synonymous with the deep house and garage sounds of the mid 90s, the boys have also lent their golden touch to more contemporary artists such as Shaun Escoffery, Marcell Russell and Bob Sinclair.

Little Maurice Jones was born deep in a Louisiana bayou in 1932. While he grew up in a family of guitar pickers, he gravitated towards banging things constantly at a very early age, much to his momma's dismay and annoyance. Eventually, he made his way to the drums (his heavy footed style earning him the Mudfoot moniker) though can play pretty much any instrument and will sing if coaxed or bribed appropriately. On this 12†you will find 4 tracks performed and written by Jones alongside the Basement Boys, all overflowing with soul, funk and a positive energy to make ‘em break a sweat on the dancefloor.

All tracks taken from the forthcoming full length album on Freestyle Records.
