Review: Especial is delighted to welcome Alphonse back to the label for a third EP to again show his deep knowledge of the past to make a future. After the debut dub-breaks-poem of Same For Me and success of his warrior afro-dance Smokey EP, Alphonse made new friends with acclaimed releases for Klasse Wrecks, Hypercolour and Black Orpheus, before here returning like a chosen one with four sun kissed blessings.

Before the fields of Letchlade, hills of Castlemorton or beaches of Skegness had witnessed Alphonse exploring the sounds of many a free party sunrise, summers were misspent travelling the disco buses of Europe, tripping the light fantastic from Spook to Amnesia, Disco Piu to Euritimia.

The music, shared experiences and inclusion all led to an acute understanding apparent in his production skills. Ambient dreamscapes, warm bass lines, 808 breaks, 909 kick, piano, flute and horn melodies atop all lift to the heavens. In Moan Up and White Pepper Alphonse takes, reshapes, rebuilds and rewrites to create anew, expanding minds and hearts like never before.

Long stories, short stores, a nod and wink, at its heart Stolen Sunrise is an EP of wonderful expression, a producer peaking, providing a soundtrack to share for those that look to the future horizons with love.

Better Weather
   
Better Weather (original mix) - (7:25) 132 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Better Weather (Phazed version) - (4:24) 131 BPM
   
Better Weather (Abyss version) - (6:19) 132 BPM
Review: Stellar vocal cut here from Alphonse Rozel, who has had previous releases for Klasse Wrecks, Emotional Especial and Black Orpheus. Described by Hypercolour as 'spacey and dusty deepness' and that's pretty on point. Vocals are provided by one Rev Be, which Rozel utilises across these three versions. The deep bleep techno of "Better Weather" in its original version calls to mind the sounds of northern UK sounds from the early '90s, the trippy dub version - or Phazed version - is vaguely reminiscent of Derrick May's studio expriements around the same time with its funked up, flanged out and reversed elements galore. Finally is the more straight ahead and dancefloor friendly bounce of the Abyss version.

Smokey
   
Smokey - (7:23) 125 BPM
   
Smokey (The Pilotwings Future Sound Of Lyon remix) - (5:30) 129 BPM
   
Glint AM - (4:51) 128 BPM
   
Glint AM (DJ Normal 4 Vibemixx) - (5:14) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Travelling both space and time with his constructions, Alphonse Rozel makes a welcome return on [Emotional] Especial after the Same For Me EP released last year. The incisive hit of the disco beat on "Smokey" is hard to ignore, while the booming toms and African chant lines feed into a perfect slice of dancefloor dynamite from an unspecified era. Meanwhile The Pilotwings take to the track with glee, whipping out some crisp breaks to drop over the proceedings in a pleasingly early '90s manner. "Glint AM" is quite the foil, leaning on some uplifting synth chords to provide the magic around the crafty drum programming.

The Unknown Cases - "Masimbabele" (Khidja remix) - (7:50) 100 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Cage & Aviary - "Imagination (On & On)" - (9:12) 112 BPM
   
Alphonse - "Same For Dub" - (7:27) 129 BPM
   
Khidja - "Looki" (original mix) - (8:39) 120 BPM
Review: Stuart "Chuggy" Leath continues to churn out the releases on his must-check Emotional Especial label. His latest missive features previously unheard reworks of material featured on the imprint's last nine releases, and predictably there's much to enjoy. Fast-rising production duo Khidja is undoubtedly the star of the show. As well as serving up an extended version of their ultra-deep, oh-so atmospheric "Looki", they also turn Unknown Cases' classic "Masimbele" into a druggy, percussive chugger full of tribal chants, throbbing analogue bass and cut-up guitar riffs. Elsewhere, Cage & Aviary turn their own "Imagination" into a loved-up epic, and Alphonse's rave-inspired "Same For Me" is re-imagined as a psychedelic, dubbed-out masterpiece.

Same For Me
   
Same For Me - (9:07) 129 BPM
   
Same For Me (Junior Fairplay remix) - (8:03) 129 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: The first and last known whereabouts of Alphonse Rozel were on Resista back in 2014 with the Can't Keep It / Skate single, and now the somewhat unknown artist has resurfaced with just the kind of renegade rave ephemera that [Emotional] Especial are prone to supporting. There's no arguing with the power of the jack on "Same For Me", but this is more than just a Chicago rip off. The additional percussion, lilting flute and unusual choice of vocal hook all add to a stand-out party track with bags of character. Junior Fairplay meanwhile drops a rowdy breakbeat-loaded version for the slower junglists out there.
