After a digression towards abstract beats of hip hop derivation in the shape of Jules Chaz’s most recent album, the Wagon Repair men are back to their usual territory with “Mexican Hotbox”, the debut album of their partner Danuel Tate. A less prolific producer, he’s put out two maxis in three years, in fact many will know him as the keyboard player in Cobblestone Jazz. The album promises heterogeneous jazz, swing and Latin elements with an electronic base (at the juncture of electrofunk, broken beats, organic house and the most refined techno) suitable for the dance floor. The album will hit stores on 22nd November.
