Proving without doubt that there's more to Israeli dance music than Psy-Trance, the Botanika fellas have been bringing the funk in the most delightfully dirty of ways for some time, with their regular events in Tel Aviv featuring the likes of Kode9, Theo Parrish and Stereotyp, plus their Botanika FM podcasts.
Now they're making the most of their finely tuned eardrums by releasing some superb tracks under their very own imprint. Their first 3 releases include some warm and wobblesome Dancehall infused Dubstep from Sabbo, a funk stomping head nodder from Polar Pair alongside Shawn Lee and another Polar Pair collaboration with spoken wordsmith Atlantis from Detroit collective Underground Resistance that sits comfortably between Techno, Breaks and Disco.
