To celebrate this weekend’s Eurovision journey into the bowels of pop music, The Star is featuring the latest from Erfurt dudes Markus and Mirko, otherwise known as the Boogie Pimps. To prove that good dance music really can come from the middle of freaking nowhere, Erfurt is an East German town hundreds of miles from anything most Australians would have heard of. Anyway, about Boogie Pimps: They’re the people responsible for that kickin’ remix of Jefferson Airplane’s Somebody to Love currently burning up dancefloors everywhere. Their latest, Sunny, is also a trip into familiar territory -“ it’s a remix of Boney M’s version of Bobby Hebb’s 1966 hit. The Erfurt boys have found a formula (digging out hot tracks that most club kids would not have heard and making them fresh) and they’re sticking with it. And good on them, there’s a lot of older music that deserves a modern audience.
