The eighth release on Sccucci Manucci sees the imprint pack a hefty eight productions that traverse various house sounds from around the world onto two slabs of handstamped wax. From Coeo's bouncy and vocal track through to Mella Dee's dark and distinctively UK-centric track the label has tried to explore the sheer wealth of production talent on offer at the moment.
Following the royal success that was Maximum Joy, Alfresco is back with another release. 2015 marks ten years of Alfresco Disco parties. The label is still only young, however, but the crew bring their party planning, DJing and producing experience into the label. The Maximum Joy pt. 2 presents four good friends of the Alfresco Crew, both old and new, who each bring something different to the e.p whilst still maintaining the free spirited Alfresco Vibe. Thermal Bear brings in a straight up classic deep house beat with "Round and Round". Outrageously warm chunky production and one to keep the crowd moving in the wee hours. Kemback's effort shuffles effortlessly into the mind, taking you on a dreamy trip to somewhere wonderful. A strong nod to Floating Points here with it's heavy swing, gritty drums, and Kemback makes subtle but powerful use of his fine musicianship. James Fox brings the good time disco-house vibe with the sample-heavy "Feeling Free". The wonderful arrangement and vocal make this a pure summer record that's been getting great crowd reactions, while CornishcConnection and newcomer Kieran Holden slows it down and makes it nice and trippy with the magnificent "Wild Palms".
