With this latest release, Spanish producer Novodisc can only consolidate a reputation that's been steadily growing for the past few years

Since the unexpected success of Sometimes in 2017, Novodisc has gone on to win a lot of industry followers via releases on labels such as Formatik, NONSTOP, Clarisse and Flashmob, to name but a few.

His latest offering is a two-track affair. The title track is a great little groover that starts with a kick, a wood block and skippy snare, which are joined by a hi-hat. Then, after some snare rolls, in come the low-slung funky bassline and some fast claps, before all kinds of crazy are added in the form of off-the-wall vocal samples and numerous other random sounds, keeping the track interesting - and the dancefloor on its toes!

The second track is called Party People. Here, after a kickdrum-led intro in come a vocal loop, hoover noises and then a scratch-introed tizzy hi-hat pattern, which leads to the addition of more random sounds and vocal samples about "party people across the nation". It's fast-paced and again should work a dancefloor to the maximum. 

The second track is my favourite here: it's funky, frivolous and fun. But the EP as a whole is a very danceable proposition for many a DJ to jump on and give both cuts a hammering over the coming months.
