"So Off The Wall is considered a Boogie record, right?"
What is Boogie? Is it just Disco Funk?
I feel like I know what it is, but I'm looking for a more nuanced discussion on it because and I'm kinda low key obsessed with it. I'm looking for suggestions and recommendations. Old and new.
SO IF I LIKE THESE...
Michael Jackson, Off The Wall (1979) Shalamar, Big Fun (1979) Anything SOLAR & Leon Sylvers III The Whispers, The Whispers (1979) Sweet Thing, Convertion (1980) Kashif, Kashif (1983) Tease, Tease (1986) Dornik, Dornik (2015) Daebull, Intimate Fonk (2019) Zo!, SkyBreak (2016) + Starlight + Just Whatcha Like Tuxedo, Tuxedo (2015) Amp Fiddler & Will Sessions, The One (2018)

Wow, sometimes I just wonder about artists on twitter, like they be going hard on there, but when it comes to fb it's crickets, Pete Rock is kind of like that on IG, he be repostin' some wild conspiracy videos and then post up some beats.

...I have know idea what Boogie means genre wise (I'm pretty much mostly genre agnostic) but judging by some of the things on your list "Cameosis" by Cameo was the first thing that popped into my head....oh, and the group 'Foxy'

Early Midnight Star is worth looking into if you haven't. Most people overlook their first couple of records. Two In Love was a nice joint from that time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLg9_5e6sho Their career began around the time of most of the records you mentioned before they became major players in the breakdance era.
Also some Con Funk Shun, Spirit of Love album especially.
If I think of some more, I'll share.
