Review: various artists - Sublabel EP (Housewax)

A four track extended player with four different artists which debuts this new label from Germany.  The artists participating in this are Russia's Alex Danilov, Alton Mayer also from the red state, World famous but from Malta Owen Jay, and a track by an unknown artist.  First released on vinyl on 24th October this extended player opens the dances with Owen Jay 'Spank' an atmospheric track with a New York Latin percussion groove and jazzy chords which build up and would not feel out of place in a Body and Soul set.  This is followed by Hands Up the track of the Unknown Artist, which has a Chicago raw groove and sound with nice male urban vocals and organ coming in and out.  Alex Danilov follows this with his Filter D, a very Larry Heard sounding track with a jazzy feel, but still very good in my books.  Anton Mayer closes the dances and offers a very high quality underground track with jazzy atmosphere featuring an unusual groove which reminds me a bit of Fred P.
