With upcoming releases on top class labels like American Standard, Sleazybeats and Ene Tokyo, Edinburgh's Lord of the Isles ventures forth with the debut 12" on his own limited edition imprint Little Strong Recordings. What you get is three excursions into deeper territories. The A side's 'Hot Blob' is a slice of Detroit inspired wonkiness designed for dancers; with a seriously seductive bass line, acidy Techno flourishes, underground keys and soulful ghostly voices, the track heads off into the deepness with all the class of a Planet E classic. On the flip side, Deep House track 'Tell your Soul' pitches that perennial question (and sample) which asks 'What is House Music ?' across a frozen lake of reflecting and melting keyboard maneuvers; with a definite nod to Larry Heard, this psychedelic shimmering beauty is made for afternoon drifting. Last up 'This Way' is the gem at the end, built for early morning Sub Club styled revelry, this stuttering, sub aquatic jam is strictly for the heads; deep, churning and soulful in the right way. With this EP, Lord of the Isles offers us a glimpse into the mighty depths of his personal catalogue and it’s very deep indeed!
