Qwestlife's dedication to crafting authentic, heartfelt and original disco tracks has been well documented over the course their partnership. The duo, a cross-European collaboration between Southern French maestro Tom Laroye and London mainstay Andy Williams (aka Yam Who?), came together in 2013, and with Tom's song-writing abilities and Andy's club track mastery, they were a match made in musical heaven. Using old school methods and analogue techniques to produce enchanting boogie-filled numbers, the Glitterbox regulars now release their debut album 'Prophecy' on the imprint, encapsulating the boundless energy of their DJ sets in an exquisite 11-track collection. With highlights including previous singles like the joyous Glitterbox anthem 'Hit It Off' and instant party anthem 'Give Me A Minute' (the duo's label debut) the feel-good qualities of this album highlight not only Qwestlife's production abilities but also their expansive knowledge of the genre. Album exclusives like 'Can't Stop' and 'Cut You Loose' show them exploring a distinctively housier vibe with vocalist Alena, while 'Universal Love' and 'Don't Break My Heart' could have been taken straight from the heart of a 1970's disco. Featuring an incredible array of collaborators that range from Detroit legend Amp Fiddler, session vocalist to the stars Teni Tinks, Barbados' Bobby Saint and the ubiquitous Sugarhill Gang this album is a wonderful ode to the dancefloor and a record box essential.
