Canada's Colin De La Plante, otherwise known to us mere mortals as The Mole, has arguably been one of the leaders of the second generation of house and techno producers. More specifically, the artist has been involved in the scene since the very early 00s, and has helped to shape labels such as Kompakt, Philpot and Wagon Repair into the powerhouses that they are currently. What we've always loved about this man's music is the characteristic of rebirth and reinvention that seems to represent all his music; this latest EP for Circus Company, Little Sunshine, sees him flex his artistic wings under yet another blend of sounds and influences. The title tune itself is a largely genre-less dance track that sways gently between house and downtempo, guided by a warm, almost funky bassline; "Discotheque Airplane" shifts gears again, landing somewhere lo-fi, where dusty hip-hop beats meet lonesome sonic landscapes. Another surprise move sees him pair up with the equally talented and legendary Tom Trago in the masterfully dubby and contained deep house gem "Down The Hallway", remixed by Holland's Aardvarck into a more potent blend of tech sounds for the floor. Hot!
