Joyce Muniz‘s funky, percussion-heavy DJ sets – covering everything from Afro beats to tropical tech, electro, and house – have already garnered her a huge international following, and Pulp Fiction, on Exploited Records is a direct reflection of her “serious sweating on the dancefloor” style. The title track is melodic and lighthearted, a party jacking house track with subtle pop moments. Tech-ed out chords and the smooth vocals drive the excellent “Morning Love,” and “Pray for Peace” is full of futuristic afro-tropical house vibes. The jacking, warm “Back Down” also stands out, and “New In Town” rounds out the release on a stripped-down, soulful deep house note.

Early appreciation by Skream, Maya Jane Coles, A-Trak, Round Table Knights, Martin Dawson, Ewan Pearson, Laurent Garnier, Ian Pooley, Hudson Mohawke, CatznDogs, Joe Goddard/Hot Chip, Munk, Alex Barck/Jazzanova, Philip Sherburne…

Some selected feedback:

Skream: Sick!

Maya Jane Coles: Joyce’s productions are always really solid. I really like her stuff and it’s good to see other female producers rising.

Round Table Knights: Great Ep! Morning Love is sooo good! Back Down & New in Town I like too..

Ewan Pearson: Strong all round – the straight-up party bounce of Pulp Fiction is probably the one for me.

Mosca: First time I’ve given 5 stars to a fatdrop promo! Will definitely run Pulp Fiction, Back Down, New In Town, and if u have an instru of Morning Love I will run that as well.

Kiki: Like this very much! Difficult to pick a fave, probably a tough choice between “back down” & “new in town”… or maybe “pray for peace”…
