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: The Broken District label has so far proved adept at offering-up warm, groovy and sun-kissed cuts that tend towards the Balearic end of the spectrum. They're at it again on "Brokenbits Volume 1", whose opening salvo - "Bubbels" by Duktus - sounds like Dam Funk after an afternoon kissing and cuddling in the Ibizan sun. Jeppe Woolmer injects a little early evening energy via the dusty, woozy and quietly jazzy deep house shuffle of "Infinitives", before Jus Jam invites us to "Escape From The Hood" via a slow-burn chunk of deep broken beat/Balearic house fusion. To round things off, SofaTalk offers up the warm deep house/jazz-funk fusion of ear-catching closing cut "A Sparkling Day".
