POWERLINE & ANDY SOJKA
One person who should get a lot more recondnition is Andy Sojka (Waxpoetics where U at?). Apparently he owned an early dj oriented record store called All Ears in London and also was the guitarist of the band Atmosfear who are well known in the dance community for their heavy disco jams like "Dancing In Outer Space" and "Motivation. Sojka was involved in many other side projects however up until the late 90's and even got the chance to work with high profile artist Masters At Work and Francois Kevorkian to name a few. One of these projects is the mysterious band called Powerline. Here I have my two favorite pieces. "Double Journey" was the 12" that first turned me on to the band. Its a beautifully spaced out journey in disco funk land. I love all the delay effects they use in the mix and that deep bassline and dubbed out guitar will give you goosebumps for sure. We also have here the stunning vocal cut entitled "Watching You". If stunning melodies and harmonies are your thing, it doesn't get much better than this.
