Not even two months have passed since label Tusk Wax released their debut EP, Tusk Wax One, so we were surprised and delight in equal measure when the second volume landed on our laps. It's another four track, limited edition vinyl, with Juno Plus 'ones to watch' alumni Chamboche opening proceedings, bridging the gap between traditional disco and modern house on "Hypnoquest". Next up, John Waynes, bass-heavy "Brotha" works a menacing electronic key sequence dappled with breathy flute and a spoken vocal for a hooky electro-ish house number. On the flip you'll find Lord Of The Isles, who takes us on a funky and sultry spoken word trip with "Fresh For You" before Jose Man invites Ilya Santana to remix "Sacramento" to close out the EP. Vintage disco at its best, "Sacramento" shoots cosmic sirens, soaring string sections and hosts a playground of synths. Top release.
Local Zero, Felix Dickinson, Andy Ash, Vincent Inc, Jacques Renault, Art Of Tones, Oscar Barila, Marcel Vogel, Chamboche, Feodor AllRight & Elena Mechta, James Johnston (No Matter What), Ilya Santana, Sccucci Manucci, Magnier (House Of Disco)
