Embat Prodz are a production and DJ duo comprising Alberto Casallo and Miki Leris. Based in the Balearic Islands, Mallorca to be specific, their hazy, slow tempo sound couldn't be more suited to their location. Now thanks to Hotbox Recordings we have a whole album from the duo, which features 10 sizzling sunset-house joints all littered with trippy vocals. Highlights include the shimmering opener "Competition Classes", the deep, but solid disco of "Stop Now" and the slinky, soulful head nodder "Whatsap Me". Slick!
Digital Wax Productions is almost exclusively the home of DJ Leonidas/Alien Disco Sugar (some conspiracy theorists even have him pegged as the label's owner), but here we see a new addition to the roster - newcomer Tuxedo Jack. Leonidas has been hyping Jack's 'club friendly funk/break edits' online and we can now hear why - there are five jams included here, including the wah-wah-heavy retro loops of "Kool Funk NT", the block-rockin breaks of "Sexy Pot" and the soulful, slow groover "All Right Now". Dancefloors everywhere, beware!
