Holding some serious Funky, dirty House attitudes, ‘Clap Your Hands’ EP is set to make big waves. ‘Megaplex’ boasts infectious, exotic grooves, which blend perfectly with the effect-based melodic wonders, adding spice to the track. This single showcases all of Jose Zaragoza’s technical ability and creativity, taking full control over dynamic and energy levels to come up with a truly remarkable effort. On the other hand, ‘The Booty Drop’ showcases some heavier beats, kicking right off with a House inspired Funky drum groove. Subtle synth snippets and vocals are placed into the mix to intensify the melodic side of things, whilst deep bass-lines take over the lower end of the frequency spectrum. Once again Jose Zaragoza puts his signature on smartly devised sectioning and dynamic control, to provide a truly magnificent conclusion to his EP.
