Label: Tropical Disco Records
By Tropical Disco 012, Sartorial and Moodena's imprint has become a buy-on-sight label for discerning house and disco lovers around the world to devour.
Sartorial kicks off proceedings with 'Fat Freddy's Party', centred around an ear worm bassline which rolls throughout, dipping amongst soaring strings, ritualistic vocal chants and a titillating Spanish guitar.
Hot shot Moodena takes charge of the second track, bringing a softer sound palette, with '80s energy, blessed keys and Moodena's signature feisty horns. Imagine Yellow Magic Orchestra jamming with Kerri Chandler and you have something a little like 'No More Sushi'.
Returning to the label for the second time, Phazed Groove offer up two expertly executed slugs of disco fire for the flip. 'Sweet Talker' is routed around a divinely whimsical vocal, accompanied by a ballsy bass and cascading flutes elevating the piece to higher states of ecstasy as it glides onwards. Like any good disco track, this will have you weeping while ferociously dancing.
'Sunshine' closes the EP poignantly, as one of our brightest British summers comes to finish. Straight up, soulful and delicate house grooves succinctly round off the EP, filling you with a sense of wide eyed optimism and unquenchable thirst for more.
As usual, heavyweight wax, sleep and it's gone.
