Outsider house specialist Sei A has delivered some of Aus Music's most potent releases of the last half-decade, including two fine albums. Universal Love, his first release of 2021, is also impressive. It sees the Glasgow-based artist shuffle between bleary-eyed, early morning house hypnotism ('Open Spaces', where Tangerine Dream style synthesizer lines and stirring chords bubble away atop a locked-in beat), heavily electronic dancefloor melancholia ('Balance'), ultra-wonky, sub-heavy minimalism (the crackling fuzziness of 'The Other Side Of'), spaced-out sunrise deep house ('Warm'), and rolling, warehouse-ready fare ('Universal Love', where spoken word vocals and tactile synth riffs catch the ear).
What is Album Only?
Some artists and labels prefer certain tracks to be purchased as part of an entire release. These tracks cannot be purchased individually but are available to download as part of the release
