It's been some 10 months since the last release from the Austere imprint. Here, the label re-boots with a split EP featuring a variety of sinewy deep house gems. There's something particularly delicious about Gradul Lashton's "Summer Solace", a sweet mixture of darting acid lines, jaunty rhythms and dreamy melodies. Fat Dog's "All That I Own" is a fluid, bluesy delight - with a little dubbiness about the drums, naturally - while Life Recorder's "From Above" sounds like a long lost Detroit techno classic - all stargazing pads, intergalactic synth bass and relentless cymbals. Best of all, though, is Arnheim's "Late Night In The Loft", a bittersweet fusion of mournful pianos and shuffling, ultra-deep grooves.
