The always reliable Razor N Tape Reserve label, which is of course home to Disco wonderboy JKriv, has reached its 46th release and it’s a very special one. With rising temperatures everywhere we can feel summer coming and this might be one of the first really serious tasters when it comes to sun drenched Disco infused funkyness. A collective of musicians devoted to walking the blurred lines that divide disco, funk, boogie and house, Kokoro Disco San first appeared on the Razor-N-Tape radar with their 2019 ‘Isla Fantasia’ release on Rocafort Records.
KDS now brings their uncanny ability to capture the mood and instrumentation of classic disco and soul with the uplifting summer anthem ‘Sunshine’ and the Candido-esque sonic journey ‘Jungle Deep’. Rounding out the EP are two remixes of the title track by label co-head JKriv, who delivers an extended acidic exploration with his ‘Beach Burn Mix’, and a bumped up yet loving treatment of the original song with his ‘SPF76 Mix’.
Needless to say those remixes are massive-check for yourself!
