It’s always a treat when you get to follow the growth of music collectives and see how they evolve into multi-faceted brands whose sole purpose is to bring us the best new dance music. In this case, we’re witnessing the birth of a new imprint, PUZL Records, led by none other than MR PUZL himself, a DJ and one of the founders of L.A.M.P.
If there were any two tracks to help get you ready for those long, hazy Summer nights, then these two are on rotation. Jamie Prado’s debut EP on PUZL Records is a 2-track collection that serves up soothing sounds, warm harmonies, and funky grooves that will reach the soul with every beat. In the opening track, Prado drizzles sensual harmonies over a funky lead synth that pairs with a bouncy, uplifting rhythm to keep the energy at just the right temperature. Seven Seas uses a light array of percussive elements that nestle softly in between a luminous piano chord progression while powerful vocals rest within the arrangement, creating a tranquil mood. As far as libations go, ‘Milk & Honey’ is best served chilled, on ice, during a warm summer day by the pool.
