There's much to admire about Joseph Terruel, not least the long-serving Mexican producer's publicity-shy approach and desire to let his music do the talking. His latest effort is a no-nonsense affair aimed squarely at peak-time dancefloors. The headline attraction is undoubtedly "Rocket Dub (DJ Tool Mix)", a pumping disco workout that peppers bongo-laden beats and rubbery bass with mangled vocal samples, spacey dub effects and occasional blasts of razor-sharp strings. Terruel then doffs a cap to his slo-mo disco past on "Flandisco (Skit)", a chugging, slap-bass-propelled affair where effects-laden guitar passages and filtered disco loops slowly rise and fall throughout.
