Review: Mr Saucedo is a Mexican guy with a big thing for summery retro dance music. Here on his latest EP we get four tracks of warm and fuzzy re-edits of vintage club hits. Lifted from Kathi Baker's original, the title track "Feel The Love" reduces the speed and adds shimmering atmospherics for a Balearic sunset feel. "Music & Light" is, as you might imagine, a beefed-up re-work of the anthem by Brit-soul heroes Imagination. "Spring Affair" is a slo-mo take on Donna Summer's mid 70s classic, adding some Jan Hammer-style electronic toms for an 80s Miami rooftop party vibe. Finally on "Sexual Love", Saucedo plays with some saucy vintage movie dialogue and heavy use of disco filters to wrap things up in a light-hearted manner.

Review: Matthew Kyle's impressive In The Woods label welcomes another new addition to the roster, Jona Saucedo. The Mexican producer isn't a total newbie, having previously released some more tech-house leading fodder, but In The Dub is arguably his strongest body of work to date. It neatly fits into the In The Woods stylesheet, offering sumptuous, string-laden slo-mo grooves and soul-flecked midtempo house. There's a slight Soul II Soul-does-slo-mo house vibe to the delicious "Beverly" and "Love & Controvery", with the latter proudly grooving around an '89 style Brit-soul break. "Look At Me", meanwhile, offers a more traditional take on slo-mo disco - all sharp strings, dubbed-out horns and dreamy vocal samples.
