Lost but not least: Emilie Nana – I Missed The Boat (Glenn Underground A Slave’s Disco Dance Remix) (Compost Blacklabel)
Well, it pretty much looks like we missed the boat at the time. And by that, I mean Emilie Nana‘s and its remix courtesy of Glenn Underground. Even though I’m obviously not the only one in this case judging by the amount of views it has had so far on Youtube. Nothing to worry about more than that though as it’s most likely the proper of the Underground. In other words, the one of the big majority of the music that doesn’t meet the criterias of the corporate radio stations.
As a matter of fact, how many are these pieces of music, speakin’ of which we could say… I missed the boat? With the first reason being we just can’t be aware of everything! No worries, I said earlier on. As despite the instantaneity of so many things around nowadays, Emilie Nana‘s ‘I Missed The Boat’ just sounds timeless. With (renewed) thanks to Glenn Underground who remixed it. Makin’ once again the brilliant illustration of his versatility. And, in the meantime, the fact that he turns most of what he (re)touches into some solid jams. The whole, as it says – Glenn Underground A Slave’s Disco Dance Remix – comin’ up as an insane blend of Disco and Funk vibes.
Hard to not think of an unlileky meeting between Cerrone and Brass Construction as a matter of fact. Don’t you think?

“Great new artists today… Eurgh, not so easy to come by people who not only have great music, but also add something to it with their presence. People you’re actually driven to follow because you know more great things are coming… Emilie Nana seems very passionate about her music and very much about what’s right and wrong in the world. A face and a mind to the music and a lot of heart too. Someone I can’t wait to hear what’s next from… Underground, poignant, cutting edge… I’m a follower!” (Danny Krivit) As many words sayin’ a lot about this artist, I suppose…
Born of Cameroonian descent in Lyon, France, although residing in Geneva, she came with her first delivery for Compost Records nine years before. This with the hypnotic ‘I Missed The Boat’ with remixing work courtesy of Glenn Underground by the end of 2009. The middle of 2011 seeing her releasing two packs almost at the same time. From the ‘SVR EP 004’, Tech House 3 tracker on Swiss label Saint-Vitus-Records. To ‘Sorcière Doctoresse’ on Third Ear Recordings along with Gregor Schönborn and Vincent Kolb aka Crowdpleaser & St. Plomb. This before coming back to Compost via a bunch of EP’s. Then delivering her debut-album – ‘The Meeting Legacy’ – in May 2016.
Joinin’ forces with producer Simbad, she then pretty much made the sensation by the beginning of 2018. This while putting Maya Angelou‘s poem, ‘I Rise’, into music under the form of an EP of the likes with a couple of Edits by the likes of Danny Krivit. A cut which eventually got into a new dimension with François K givin’ it a stellar remix that saw the light by the beginning of November of the same year.
