Pets welcome new friend Joyce Muniz to the menagerie!
Brazil-born/ Vienna-based and bad to the bassline bone; Joyce's cuts on the likes of Gigolo, Gruuv, Exploited and 2020 Vision have established a pedigree for uncut house grooves since she levelled up from DJ to producer in 2010. Ten years deep in the craft, every record shows a new side to her. Especially these
'Glass Mistress' sets the stark, stripped-back tone for the collection. Writhing and flexing in some late night 80s neon dungeon, there's an added sense of barbed tech noir as the stern processed vocals stalk around a rifle-like arpeggiated bassline. 'Trapped' follows. The darkest track of the collection, there's a strong stench of 90s warehouses and fields in the middle of nowhere as a big bass riff does all the talking. Heads down, hands up, this captures the essence of the music that's brought us all together in the first place.
Finally 'Naughty Party' maintains the togetherness but in a much more mischievous way with a classic electro-style bassline, synth-tom percussion hits and eerie chords. Naughty by name, heavy by nature; Joyce has delivered something special right here.
