About this item

Lionoil return with Edinburgh’s Telfort who's previously self-released three superb EPs to much acclaim here at Piccadilly (Move D, Axel Boman, Smallpeople, Moxie, Tim Sweeney, Jane Fitz & Jacques Renault are also fans...)

With “Rooms For Speculation”, he delivers four versatile deep house cuts for his fellow city-dwellers. The title track opens with rapturous piano chords and stirring sample-work, before deploying burly bass stabs under wholesome Rhodes deepness. “Some Other Time” accelerates on, sweeping through layers like a dreamy dystopian car chase. On the flip, “Barberweed” turns the temperature up to ‘peak summer scorcher’ as dulcet samples float above another of Telfort’s boundless basslines tempered with those spiky 909s. Lastly, “Exploding Car” mellows off the EP, despatching a warming orchestra of dusty strings, a driving weapon for the warmup.

This essential Summer record is undoubtedly Telfort’s most accomplished to date, cementing his deep, idiosyncratic yet highly playful style. Totally recommended!


Patrick says: There's no shortage of good house music this week, and Telfort's 'Rooms For Speculation' is particularly tasty. Nuanced percussion, warm keys and squidgy acid lines take the title track to the next level.
