After 13 months away, Brummie deep house don Mark Evetts returns with something rather special: a warm and woozy, analogue-rich Delusions of Grandeur label debut that arguably sees him in peak form. He first peppers a squelchy bassline and soft-touch drums with sweet melodic motifs and tactile synthesizer chords on 'Swimming Through a Diamond', before tipping a wink to his own hypnotic productions of old on the immersive and warming 'Compact Object'. There's a slightly jazzier and more organic feel to the sun-speckled deepness of 'Heartaches', while 'Leaning Into The Light' is marked out by gorgeous chords, bubbly electric piano lines and languid solos. Finally, 'Mirrored Cube' is a pleasingly saucer-eyed slab of mid-tempo goodness that sounds like it was tailor-made for sofa-bound listening sessions after a heavy night out.
