Review: Igor Gonya has enjoyed a productive year so far, delivering EPs on Moodyhouse, Moiss Music, Moulton Music, Gents & Dandys and Good Luck Penny. Now the Russian producer can add Discoweey to that list, too. As you'd expect, he's in a chunky disco-house kind of mood on virtual A-side "To Make Your Heels Sparkle", a bouncy and entertaining affair in which bustling new beats underpin groovy and occasionally spaced-out sections of a tried-and-tested disco classic. Gonya shakes things up on sax-laden second cut "Mel Brooks", which sees him conjure up a head-nodding house cut crafted from hard-wired funk loops.
Review: Igor Gonya will be known to most as the man behind Russian deep house/deep tech labels Sundries and Lisztomania, but for this two-tracker he comes to Mexican funk and disco stable Super Spicy. It's a move that perfect makes sense, because the two cuts on offer are more organic than anything we've heard from him previously, with 'Fascination' an unashamed and very authentic-sounding homage to the Latin funk of the 70s, while 'Just Eight' looks to that era when disco was slowly morphing into 80s boogie. Essentially, this is the sound of an accomplished producer spreading his musical wings a little, and that's gotta be worth a listen!
