Superb, cosmic-leaning house music from Lex on the newly invigored Delusions Of Grandeur. The Greek DJ, producer and Radical Soundz shop owner has been immersed in dance music for over 20 years and considered one of the key figures in the Athens underground house scene. Fellow Greek artist Locke joins proceedings for this EP bringing his own psychedelic influences to the table..
Title track "7 Day Path" is both spacious and driving. Rooted to a deep bassline, Lex unpacks funky leads deep in the mix whilst a lively percussion template keeps hands and heads aloft; preventing that hypnotic b-line cementing too much grip.
Cosmic royalty DJ Rocca is on hand for a remix. Here he adds his trademark dubby disco wiggle, pushing the original in a jazzy direction with live flute. Definitely one to be heard under the stars on a Croatian beach for maximum Adriatica effect!
Flipping over, things head into nocturnal territories on "See No Ball" featuring Locomotives, a more stripped back club jam with a repeated vocal, funky guitar chops and a smattering of improvised synth and Hammond B3 keeping things jazzy and musical while that percolated beat keeps the dancefloor on tenterhooks.
Closing out this brilliant EP we have "Catch Up With The Sun" which drops the BPM’s for a low-slung cosmic jam loaded with good vibes. Killer!
