By fusing elements of jazz, afro, Latin, funk and soul with the deeper end of house and disco, Aroop Roy has forged his own style with EPs on revered labels including G.A.M.M, Basic Fingers, Freestyle and Lazy Days. For his Delusions Of Grandeur debut he delivers three original tracks that hammer home his identity even further. "Save Our Love" kicks us off, a track that’s absolutely brimming with energy thanks to punchy Wurlitzer chops, tension-building Philly strings, and a rock-solid disco groove. Next, "What I Love" sees Aroop take an altogether more freaky approach, flipping an uptempo rolling break, distorted synth line, cross-rhythm stabs and rasping vocal cuts into an edgy dancefloor workout. Closing the EP is the low-slung bump of "Walk That Walk", featuring original vocals from Oakland based Blacktroniks who delivers his flow on top of a grooving slice of boogie-house which tips its hat to Detroit pioneer Amp Fiddler. Strong stuff indeed!

Session Victim return to Jimpster's Delusions Of Grandeur imprint with a third studio album. "Listen To Your Heart" is the result of a year of cross-continental writing, started in their Hamburg studio and wrapped up stateside in San Francisco's Room G Studios. Sampling still remains an ever present backbone throughout the album. Session Victim have dug deep for sounds, resulting in a richly detailed and organic sound collage that goes hand-in-hand with their live instrumentation, this time enhanced through several guest musician appearances, most notably Carsten 'Erobique' Meyer (ex-International Pony). Smooth guitar samples are built up on "Over and Over" while on "Moons & Flowers" the live instrumentals that Session Victim do so well come to the fore. The treasure trove of San Francisco's record shops proved to be a hard bait to resist and the pair spent a large part of their Californian time hunting for records to sample. Three new tracks emerged from these digging sessions, with the sweeping disco string arrangements on "Shadows" standing out as a prime ode to days spent combing through bargain bins. "Listen To Your Heart" is equally a product of the road. While heavy touring is often cited as a hindrance to the creativity of artists, Session Victim see their live shows as a catalyst to their creativity. Two US tours in 2016 gave the Hamburg duo the opportunity to take track sketches and fragments on the road to incorporate into their live shows and then digest them back in the studio. The playful funk soaked groove of "Matching Half" captures the sense of movement present throughout "Listen To Your Heart" and the LP mix of "Up To Rise", which caused heavy ripples when it dropped as part of 2016's "Matching Half EP" is an extension of the upbeat and euphoric groove that permeates the album.


Vinyl comes with CD version of the album enclosed.

Tornado Wallace has had a great 12 months following his debut release "Paddlin'" on Delusions put him firmly on the map of heavyweight young producers to watch. Subsequent remixes for Home Taping Is Killing Music, Future Classic and Detroit label Kolour have pushed him further to the forefront of deep and dubby slomo house scene.

"Always Twirling" spins into action with driving 16th note hats, compressed pads and soaring strings. 808 snare fills rattle throughout and a warm, dubby bassline provides the speaker-troubling low end. "Twirl And The Beanstalk" goes for a more heads down, bare beats and bass approach resulting in an intense, floor friendly track that grooves extra hard. Finally, we have "Whispering Twirl", a sumptuous slice of midtempo deepness with a hint of boogie and a dash of soul.
