Release Date:07/21/2017;Notes:PHILIPPE KROOTCHEY was a musician, DJ, radio and television host born in Versailles, France in 1954. In the early 1970s he joined political gay liberation movement Revolutionary Homosexual Action Front (Front Homosexuel d'Action Révolutionnaire) that gave radical visibility to homosexuals. Turning to the decadent nightclub scene of Paris, Philippe became one of the most important disc jockeys of the late '70s and early '80s holding residencies at les Bains-Douches and the Privilège. Philippe's look was striking and his elegance and charisma massive. In 1981 he formed the band LOVE INTERNATIONAL with PHILIPPE CHANY and FRED VERSAILLES and released the hit disco single "Dance On The Groove (And Do The Funk)". He also sang back up on both "Jungle Hurt" by Mathematiques Modernes and " Les Baisers D'amants" by Lizzy Mercier Descloux in 1981. Between 1984 and 1988 he released three maxi 12" singles under his surname 'Whatazzy' (1984), 'I Hear My Ears' (1986), 'Cruel Justifier' (1988)._x000D_ In 1984 Krootchey released his debut single "Qu'est c'qu'il a (d'plus que moi ce négro là?)" on disco label Casablanca Records. Subsequently the single was re-released the same year but sung in English as "Whatazzy." For this release he teamed up with former Love International bandmate Fred Versailles, who shared his love for Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra as well as glam rock and '70s black American soul music. The result is a slick synthetic funk and electro boogie reminiscent of Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambata. Philippe rap and subverting racism at the same time. On the B-side is "Voodoo" a slowed down instrumental dub version that stretches out the original to over 7-minutes. Sadly on September 2, 2004 Philippe Krootchey died of a cerebral aneurysm, just short of celebrating his 50th birthday. Each copy includes two postcards with lyrics, photos and liner notes by Fred Versailles.;Track List:1. Qu'est-Ce Qu'il a (D'plus Que Moi Ce Négro LÀ?) - Krootchey;2. Hot Voodoo Dub - Krootchey
