12 Tree : Izzy wazza groova

Either way, you can dance to this very easily, and then forget every single note before the next disco retro house smash is cued up on the decks.

The vocoder is fast becoming 1999's answer to the 'Wooh... Yes!' James Brown sample featured on every dance record made in 1991. For the uninitiated and terribly square, it's that device

that

makes your voice sound all electronic, in an 'old-school' disco stylee from the days when people believed synthesizers were the future. But now Cher's used it, so its days in the limelight of fashion are surely numbered. That hasn't stopped 12 Tree, who probably thought of it before Cher, although ironically enough they could just as easily have used the 'Wooh... Yes!' sample, such is the user-friendly daft funk groove of this record. Either way, you can dance to this very easily, and then forget

every

single note before the next disco retro house smash is cued up on the decks. Wooh! Yes!
