Jerzzey Boy – A Jerzzey Thang is a fine example of New Jersey garage house. This record is a fine example of garage house revival as each song on this record will make you want to dance. Which in part is because this record was released during the revival in 1992 as house and garage were at its peak height in the underground with extremely high popularity. The early-to-mid 90s’s were the best period for house and garage. Unfortunately people missed out on this record the first time around as this record is difficult to find anywhere these days. This single is a must have for any house lover!
Jerzzey Boy was inspired by Tony Humphries when producing and arranging songs to use for this single. Gee’s Groove is one example of that where Tony Humphries’ sound is evident.
The song Dance will make you want to dance and uses a killer Inner City vocal sample over loud garage styled deep house beats. This song is also a fine example of garage house revival. Lovely background vocals are laid over the electronic instrumental.
Gee’s Groove serves as another representation of New Jersey garage house most definitely. This is one of those songs which will make you want to dance as the beats are defiant and all over the place. These compelling beats pan from left-to-right and right-to-left with such spacious audacity. Shakers, crushed drums, and handclaps are what make Gee’s Groove infectious and compelling. Jerzzey Boy was inspired by the sounds of Tony Humphries when producing and arranging this song.
Do You Want Some More uses a bit of 50s doo-wop in the vocal sample over light bass notes, light hearted shakers, doubled layers of percussion such as an xylophone, and over-sampled flute notes. The doo-wop is what really stands out.
I rate this single 5/5*****!
