Label: Tropical HeatScore: 7.5/10
Tropical Heat is a new label which – much as its title suggests – promotes the sort of stifling hot house fare which has been fine-tuned with Croatian and Balearic summers in mind. No better crew then to helm their latest release, as label boss Wasabi goes toe-to-toe with Vanilla Ace and Sugar Hill. Sometimes too many cooks can, of course, spoil the broth, but in the case of Tropical Heat’s 17th release, it’s more a case of each individual producer bringing their finest ingredients to the table.
Disco Sh*t is the release in question, and with a name like that, you’d be correct in thinking that this is far from subtle house music. On the contrary, this is music that designed to blow your socks off, and as such, it’s good anthem written all over it. The sample is a golden one too, as the guys round up Sylvester’s classic ”You Make Me Feel” and essentially run this one as a bootleg of some of the best parts. Ironically, it’s not really disco at all, but genre nitpicking aside, this one will bring the heat to the dancefloor in no uncertain terms. Sure, it’s far from the most discerning release you’re likely to stumble across this summer, but it’s dancefloor prowess is absolutely without question. If contemporary labels a la Suara, OFF etc are your bag, then chances are you’ll dig this Disco shit.
