Janette “Jnett” Pitruzzello is considered something of a legend in her home city of Melbourne, where she’s been DJing for well over two decades.
Here, she delivers her debut solo EP, featuring a quartet of tracks co-produced by Maurice Fulton. The latter also delivers a solo mix of opener “Reflection", which adds a little leftfield disco sparkle and percussive sweatiness to an otherwise organ-heavy deep house groove. There’s a similarly cheery, funky and disco-tinged feel to the rolling, cut-up house goodness of “Swangzipani". Elsewhere, the duo gets a little stranger in pursuit of dancefloor thrills; “Bubbles Away” is deliciously dark, wonky and intergalactic, while “Judge Not” wanders off into head-nodding, instrumental hip-hop territory.
