In recent times, Legendary Sound Research have impressed with the quality of their deep house releases (having initially dabbled in nu-disco). This debut EP from Polish producer Selvy is another cracker. Title track "Gotta Have It" is particularly special, featuring both a superb retro-futurist groove (think bongo-laden disco beats and warm analogue bass) and some deliciously melancholic musical touches (a heart-aching vocal sample and some tear-jerking strings). There's plenty to get excited about elsewhere on the EP, too, from the smooth, soul-flecked bump of "My Soul", to the jazz-and-soul tinged looseness of the brilliantly percussive "Untitled". Seriously impressive stuff, all told.
We're thrilled to have Polish producer Selvy back following a long absence. His debut, Gotta Have It, arrived nearly two years ago, and now the follow up, Missing The Light, is finally here. There are three examples of exotic grooves this time - the hazy, eight-minute bongo and Fender Rhodes trip, "Tale To The Sky", the perky piano house-goes-rainforest boogie, "Toucan" and the tougher 303-led stomp of "Comb The Bushes".
