Review: Furious Mandrill bring us an EP from Mexican producer Superflat that packs three quite different-sounding tracks. The EP opens with 'A Night In Cancun', which can just about be filed under tropical/Latin disco - but only just, because in truth it has as much to do with traditional Mexican sounds (mariachi, corrido, nortena etc) as it does with 4/4 kicks and mirrorballs. The Cuban-infused 'Radio Habana' moves closer to "proper" disco territory, but the standout for yours truly here is 'Kingston On Acid', an almost Eastern-tinged deep house groove with a preacher-style vocal and mucho 303 squelch n' squeal.
