TROPICAL DISCO VOL. 13 !
Tropical Disco are back with Volume 13, unveiling 4 innovative cuts of disco-house dancefloor shakers on an ever-burgeoning imprint.
Moodena introduces the record in raucous form with ‘Do What You Like’. It’s loose, full of sass, brass and low-slung swing. Staying true to Moodena’s style, it has an effortless aura to it, feeling like a jam while when listened to closely bustles with pinpoint accuracy and detail.
‘Kool Geeza’, Sartorial’s contribution borders breakbeat, commencing with a filtered, rolling drum rhythm before a tough kick inevitably steers the track to deliver its rightful housey doings. Iconic, detuned synths overlay western harmonics and a slick bass, evoking visions of gleaming 80s movie car chases.
Austrian artist Munky Fike has put out a string of successful releases on labels such as Snazzy Traxx and Pogo House Records, crafting functional, classy deep house cuts. On his second outing for Tropical Disco, ‘Funky Disco Queen’ is one of his most considered productions, with just 3 bass notes jousting a psychedelic plucking guitar an empathetic energy is built.
San Diego based production duo Castle Queenside return to the label to close off the EP in fine style. Working mellifluous vocal harmonies into lush, charming waves, while a profound beat surfs through, ‘You’ve Always Been’ is a blissful symphony to round off an accomplished record.
As a deep, party starting package for jazzed out, groove loving freaks, this one’s essential! [info sheet from distr.]
