Making a return to the Editorial Waxed series is none other than Mexico's Hotmood. Having been lighting up the world with his reworks for a minute now, he splits the EP with the label’s own Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee for the 'Funk Brothers' EP.
Opening the record is a newcomer to Editorial, the UK’s very own Thatmanmonkz . He kicks things off with a remix of Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee's slo-mo classic 'Shades of Blue', pushing the tempo and taking it into a fabulously darker club workout.
Next up, Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee dial the tempo way back in customary style, with slinky hi-hats, funky claves and flute melodies. They top things off by adding their own Fender Rhodes to the mix resulting in a sunny, poolside cocktail number on 'Cantina'
Flip the plate and Hotmood's side kicks off with the disco dance floor monster 'Chico Shake'. A bouncy bass line leads with a vocal urging you to 'shake it', as a horn line drives the point home. His second track 'El Artista', leverages the same groovy flute riff as seen on 'Cantina' while this version retains the decidedly uptempo dance floor aesthetic.
All in all, this EP touches on a number of flavours while providing tastemakers the tools to keep any discerning dance floor shaking
