Review: WIth Clafrica an artist borne out of a flurry of records and releases that made their way out in 2019, the Sicilian artist brings a beat heavy collection of tracks to Darker Than Wax that takes its inspiration from ghetto house, booty music, techno, deep house and electro. Bass heavier numbers take a slightly aquatic form in "U Reach I Teach" next to something more cruisey in "Skip Thru That Lane" - dope video game music. Hard electronic drums underpin the Drexciyan electro of "U Can't Guard Me!" with the lyrics in "Ride The Defense" as lurid as its bassline. Get your classical and melodic house music number outta "Sharpshoota" with some haunted drum tracks (Ghouls & Goblins style) to be found in "Halftime". Dope EP.
Review: Indonesian producer Munir represents the new wave of millennial multi hyphenates. The Bandung based boogie darling is no stranger to the Darker Than Wax family, with several releases for the Singapore label thus far - but this latest project from him is definitely one of the most exciting yet. Thursday is an extended EP which features a stunning selection of moods and grooves, From the acido- balearic deep house of "Ashitaka No Dansu", jazzy/loungey nu-disco for lovers like on "Until U Come" or some lo-slung boogie-down action like on "Veranda Grande" which also gets a terrific remix up next by Silo that's perfect for those long, hot summer nights.
