Review: Church founder Seb Wildblood may only be six years into his production career, but he already has an impressive slew of EPs and singles under his belt. "Sketches Of Transition", is the South London producer, DJ and label boss' long-awaited debut album and arguably his most musically expansive and on-point set to date. Largely warm, gentle, summery and sunrise-ready, it sees Wildblood drift between sumptuous Balearic grooves ("Twenty Eight"), sumptuous neo-soul ("Thought For Food"), liquid deep house ("Small Talk"), dusty-but-toasty workouts ("Bahn"), ultra-deep synth-pop (the Andras & Oscar style goodness of "Amelia") and impeccable ambient tracks capable of making the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end ("One For Malcolm").
Review: Church and All My Thoughts founder Seb Wildblood has been in great form of late, with last year's atmospheric and sun-kissed "Sketches Of Transition" album being particularly inspired. Here he returns to club-focused EP action in fine style with two slabs of "Hazy House". The A-side "Hazy House Vol 1" is warm, dreamy and alluring, with Wildblood wrapping rising and falling melodies, sustained chords and sunrise-ready electronic flourishes around a swinging house groove. Flipside "Hazy House Vol 2" is a more robust and forthright affair. While it utilizes some dreamy chords, the track's allure comes from the producer's deep sub-bass, jacking beats and some especially spacey electronic noises.
Review: There's plenty to set the pulse racing within this new set of remixes of tracks from Seb Wildblood's superb album "Sketches Of Transition", which dropped on All My Thoughts earlier in the year. Our pick of the bunch is the superb Suzanne Kraft remix of "Amelia", which wraps glistening '80s guitar sounds and fretless bass notes around a chugging, arpeggio-driven groove, though many may gravitate towards the tight but undeniably groovy and melodious Jenifa Mayanja deep house version of "Small Talk". Elsewhere, Ciel re-imagines "Bahn" as an intoxicating chunk of bleep-laden broken electronica/Balearic fusion, while object blue impressively chops up "Sketches" into a sludgy, mind-altering style.
