Gents – time to get your three-piece flared-leg suits on; ladies – time to hit the wardrobe for a jersey wrap because Morongroover and Mr Bristow are shortly to go large with their Ghetto Disco EP on Breakbeat Paradise! The pair set out with the intention of funking you up till you boogie down and with opener I Like It Like That it’s Soul Train Disco Night manoeuvres from the off. Then, having got you making like a fly gangster glitterball boss, the pace picks up for Front To The Back‘s outright pumping nu-disco menace complete with scratch flourishes – a vibe that also defines pneumatic closer Where You At. This release though is all about The Wizard Of Oz which will have them trippin’ at the disco. Why? Because it blends People Under The Stairs’ The Wiz with the sound of Studio 54 in a manner not completely alien to P.U.T.S. themselves. And I can’t imagine anyone grumbling about that.
(Out 25 August on Juno/ 31 August globally on Breakbeat Paradise)
