Ben Gomori curates another unputdownable VA for his Monologues Records label with four killer tracks from new, emerging and resurgent names from four different countries that have been getting big reactions of late.
Copenhagen's genius-like Paxton Fettel has been destroying dancefloors with his piano-heavy, joyous sound recently on labels like Delusions Of Grandeur and Greta Cottage Workshop. 'I'd Like To Know You Better' is another fist-pumping jam that oozes positivity. London DJ Kristy Harper makes her debut in the production world with the slinky, pared-back disco groove of 'Uncle Jungle' - an earworm of a track which she has been consistently pestered for when playing in her sets.
Sub Club resident Harri has been slaving away over new material as one half of Glasgow duo Manakinz, with their heavyweight, relentlessly building and layered house sounds exemplified on the extremely potent 'Robopubez (Rust In Peace)'. Sounds from South Africa round off the EP, as now-London-based talent Maxime Alexander turns out a phat acid-house-rap jam with fellow SA rapper $hakes' irresistible delivery on hand.
