Eric Gooden and Eric Powell put a band together called ‘Sweet Mercy.’ Working with Dave Morales, Roger Sanchez, Satoshi Tomiie, Melanie Williams, Joe Roberts, Graham Park to name a few.  ‘Sweet Mercy’ went on to have several house music hits such as: 

    ‘Take Me Away’ (still in Sasha’s Top Ten ever records).  Melanie Williams sang the original guide vocal, her eighteen year old niece ‘Natasha’ did the lead vocals, when visiting Eric Gooden earlier this year, Eric and Eric found the original guide vocal (which they will release at the end of this year) of ‘Take Me Away’ with the newly found vocal: https://youtu.be/sQFo5K-E7-o.

    ‘Reach Out’ – this was the first track they wrote and released together on the fledgling ‘Blip Records.’ If you don’t know the original you will recognise the vocal which has been sampled by Todd Terry, Black Eyed Peas, bootlegged by Laidback Luke to name a few.  It was remixed in 2008 and hit Number One on most Dance Charts.  Still a floor filler today, that vocal has been used across most dance music genres including DnB, EDM, Breaks: https://youtu.be/GdjdR8F6pQI.

    Incognito Bio:
    An acid jazz project with deep roots in the 1970s jazz/funk/soul world, Incognito was originally formed by Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick and Paul ‘Tubbs’ Williams in 1979. Both were the original members of the late -'70s disco-funk group ‘Light of the World.’ Whist Tubbs had been a contributing member of another L.O.T.W. off shot ‘Beggar & Co,’ Bluey had formed ‘Freeez’ with Jonny Rocca and Peter Maas, but throughout the time that they worked on other projects they would meet at Bluey's house in North London to play music in a makeshift bedroom studio, for they both had a musical affinity and an undying love for funky jazz. 

    They decided to take a couple of their home made jams into the studio, and so it is that Incognito debuted with the single ‘Parisienne Girl’ (which also featured another L.O.T.W member Peter Hinds) and released the 1981 LP ‘Jazz Funk.’ The planned second album ‘Behind The Mask’ in 1983 went into a jazz rock fusion direction and came out under another name (‘The Warriors’).  Throughout the 80's Bluey continued to write material for his group, even while working with Maxi Priest, Total Contrast, Steven Dante and others.  Tubbs went on to work with George Michael and Rosie Gaines and later moved to the Netherlands.  By the beginning of the 1990s, DJ legend and early Incognito fan Gilles Peterson had founded the Talkin' Loud label and he made Incognito one of his first signings.  The 1991 single ‘Always There’ (with vocals by Jocelyn Brown) became a Top Ten hit as part of Britain's booming acid jazz scene, prompting the release of Incognito's official second album ‘Inside Life.’ It was largely a studio affair, with Bluey and engineer Simon Cotsworth directing a large cast with many of the best musicians in Britain's fertile groove community. 

    In 1992 they released ‘Tribes, Vibes and Scribes.’ Bluey added American vocalist Maysa Leak and a cover of Stevie Wonder's ‘Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing,’ became another hit for the band.  The album ascended Britain's pop charts and went on to feature in the America's contemporary jazz charts.  The third album, ‘Positivity’ in 1993 became the group's biggest album success, with much attention across Europe as well as Britain.  That album also spawned ‘Deep Waters’ which would become their biggest radio hit in the USA to date! 

    The band toured relentlessly and Pamela Anderson and Joy Malcolm were brought in as featured vocalists on their 1995 world-wide hit album ‘100° And Rising.’ Leak returned though... appearing on the following year's luscious and warm sounding ‘Beneath the Surface.’ 

    Incognito later expanded their discography with 1996's ‘Remixed’ which featured the dons of the dance scene ‘Masters At Work,’ David Morales, Roger Sanchez and Pete Rock, 1998's ‘Tokyo Live’ and 1999's ‘No Time Like the Future’ which featured the hit ‘Nights Over Egypt.’ The group's next two albums were again made without Leak, 2001's ‘Life Stranger Than Fiction’ and 2003's Dome / Edel debut ‘Who Needs Love,’ which featured Brazilian vocalist Ed Motta, Joy Rose & Kelly Sae. 

    More releases on Dome records followed with ‘Adventures in Black Sunshine.’ In 2004 featuring the late George Duke on the cut ‘Minding My Business.’ The Aptly named eleventh album ‘Eleven’ featuring Imaani and Tony Momrelle followed in 2005. ‘Bees + Flowers + Things’ appeared at the end of 2006.  The album was a mix of cover versions along with stripped down re-recordings of four Incognito classics. 

    In 2008 Bluey and company released ‘Tales from the Beach’ and ‘More Tales Remixed.’ 

    In 2010 they issued two albums: ‘Live in London: The 30th Anniversary Concert’ and the studio set ‘Transatlantic R.P.M.,’ featuring guest appearances by: Chaka Khan, Mario Biondi, Leon Ware, Al McKay, Christian Urich from Tortured Soul, Ursula Rucker, and Maysa among others.  A cover of the classic Boz Scaggs ‘Lowdown’ saw the band’s international status grow more and more popular. ‘Surreal’ in 2012 featured Vanessa Haynes and two newcomers Natalie Williams and Mo Brandis with the addition of new younger musicians in the rhythm section, and once again the band took on a fresh direction on an old musical theme and provided their fans with unforgettable live shows. 

    The band celebrated it's 37th birthday in 2016 and the release of their 16th studio album.

      After the success of the very first overseas ‘Mobile Disco’ in Bali recently, Carl and Eric also just wrapped up a string of Australian & New Zealand Winery Tour Dates featuring the fabulous: Cece Peniston & Robin S! Where the Music Policy was strictly: Funk, Disco, Soul Grooves & Classic House!
       
      From Carl & Eric:
      “The Mobile Disco tour was fantastic this year, we absolutely love this event.  It is an opportunity for us to dig into our record collection, play some of our most loved tracks, songs that were part of our growing up, songs that have influenced us over the years.  It is a pleasure for us to share the music.  This tour was a tour of ‘firsts.’ In Brisbane, we went to Roma Parklands for the first time, we also went to the Barossa Valley, Canberra and Queenstown, all for the first time.  Each event was unique. For Brisbane, we were right in the city of the tiered levelled venue and it was fantastic, the crew definitely brought a huge vibe to the event! Queenstown, the adventure capitol, the weather a month out looked like it was going to be clear skies and sunny.  Just three days out from NZ the weather (using the travel agent’s words) “looked horrific.” With multiple flight cancellations we finally caught a connecting flight (with little time in-between).  The weather Gods were on our side and the worst of the Queenstown weather held off.  Queenstown crew turned up and they were ready! It was cold with a bit of drizzle but you guys came prepared and we loved it.  It was our first time in Canberra too and it was amazing! Set in the beautiful Botanical Gardens, we’d like to send a big thank you to the ‘Kicks Entertainment’ crew, for the great set up and a fantastic crowd.  Finally, the last show of the tour was at the stunning Barossa Valley.  As you know, we are the ‘Mobile Disco’ and move around, so it was a special venue in Seppeltsfield, what a history, the event space was placed right amongst the gum trees.  Thank you to Seppeltsfield – SA, Cargo Brewery at Waitari Creek – Queenstown, Kicks Crew – Canberra and Brisbane Tourism/Marketing/Events and Parklands for making it a tour we won’t forget.  Also, a huge thankyou to Robin S and Cece Peniston.
       
      Melbourne, as you know it’s not possible to do a ‘Mobile Disco’ this coming February and we have had lots of messages asking if we could do another date.  Well we have been working really hard to find another venue and get the permits through in time and we are happy to say that we have a city centre, green venue: Piknic Électronik at The Sidney Myer Music Bowl.  This will be a thank you gig for all the Mobilizers that have supported us over the years, with a special priced ticket.  We are going back to basics with Carl and Eric on the decks from the beginning to the end.  See you on the Dancefloor!” 
       
      CARL & ERIC’S MOBILE DISCO:
      PIKNIC ÉLECTRONIK

      SUNDAY 20th JAN 2019

      About event: Carl & Eric will be doing what they do best! Digging deep through their extensive record collections and picking out their favourite soul, funk and disco tracks that they were brought up with and tracks that have influenced them over the years.  It’s a known fact that they have many gems in the archives! 
       ‘Mobile Disco’ began in Melbourne, Australia with 150 of Carl & Eric’s closest friends.  It’s gotten bigger each year with more friends & jazz, funk and disco loving fans coming along for the ride.  ‘Mobile Disco’ is now a ‘Must Attend’ national tour playing to sold out boutique shows at some of the most picturesque locations across Australia. 

      So get those disco shoes ready, this is one ‘Mobile Disco’ you won’t want to miss!!

      A birthday is a cause for celebration, and a time to reflect on the years that have passed. When Sweat It Out was founded, it was a platform to release and champion good music - starting with close friends, and soon after spreading to the wider music community. From the outset, standards were high and the music diverse, with the very first release of Gameboy/Gamegirl’s album ‘Golden Ghetto Sex’, and the second signing to the label, Killaqueenz with the anthemic single ‘Bitches’. To this day, regardless of experience, background or genre, to quote Ajax, it’s all about “shtick”. And to us, there was one track sitting in our music library collecting metaphorical dust, and now marking 10 years of Sweat It Out, we thought it time for this one to see the light of day. To the family, friends of Adrian “Ajax” Thomas, we hope you hear in this track what we have: his lively personality, his sense of humour, and most of all, pure unadulterated "shtick".
       
      Accompanying the release, is a full music video created from the classic cartoon of Ajax's alter ego - walking past an art gallery of each Sweat It Out release artwork, again highlighting the evolution of the label over the past decade. With the initial wolf sketch created by OG Sweat designer Billmund, responsible for the creation of the iconic Sweat shoes, we were delighted to have his team on board to create this piece with us. Animated by Katy Ross, and polished by Walt Disney animator, Nick Harrop, they have given the wolf the style and swagger reminiscent of our main man Ajax.
       
      ‘I’m Hot’ is taken from the wider release ‘Sweat It Out 2008 - 2018’, which is not only a celebration of the legacy of Ajax, but the successes the label has seen over the years. With side A focusing on the Dance Legend himself, the full release features 16 tracks carefully picked from a very Sweaty catalogue of over 217 releases to date. From iconic moments like the first release, to office favourites, and the first couple of acts to break-out globally, it is both a momentous and meaningful summary of what has been achieved. And furthermore, we look forward to another 10 years of celebrating great music and great people, in loving memory of Ajax.
       
      Ajax ‘I’m Hot’ and Sweat It Out 2008 - 2018 are out now on Sweat It Out, and available via all leading music retailers.
