We last heard from "vinyl-faced artist" Apparel Wax back in January, when the man (or woman) of mystery unleashed a second scorching EP of high-grade deep house on Apparel Music. For EP number three, the Son of Sleeveface takes a different tack. The untitled opener, for example, is a layered, floor-friendly, jazz dance-friendly sample collage full of vintage funk drum breaks, swinging percussion solos, fluid jazz piano solos and less than subtle nods towards hip-house. While a little messy, it's undeniably enormous fun. "Track 2" sees old wax-chops beef up and slightly weird out a jaunty, horn-heavy Afro-funk cut, while the flipside excursion is a romping deep house revision of a swirling and chiming '80s soul hit.
