the lauren bacall return with their sixth release in the series. a various artists featuring bardot, ava and label stalwart gable. each track is packed full of lusty, deep melodics and scuffling, skittering drum patterns.
from deep within the shadows, grant steps out with his debut album *the acrobat* on enigmatic label the lauren bacall. lush atmospherics lift up each of the high-flying tracks on *the acrobat*, crafting a sense of euphoria and ease that is reminiscent of such deep house from late 90s early 2000 inspired by labels such as early plastic city, deep4life, and svek.
gable & grant are joined by harlow in this next instalment of the diaries volumes. on the third release they explore more rolling, pacy grooves whilst still maintaining that familiar brand of melancholic, washed out nostalgia. the b side here is a proper floor burner with a choice vocal sample mixed in for good measure.
the fourth instalment from the lauren bacall sees an eclectic various artists four tracker come to fruition, more premium deep house jams featuring lbc s trademark woozing pads and downcast melodic refrains. stocky drum programming pounds away below gloomy synths and chunky bass, all conceived on grey days and brought to life at sunrise.
vinyl only release, ltd to 500 copies
i didnt mind what she called me, what anybody called me. but this was the room i had to live in. it was all i had in the way of a home. in it was everything that was mine, that had any association for me, any past, anything that took the place of a family. not much: a few books, pictures, radio, old letters, stuff like that. nothing. such as they were, they had all my memories and no one could disturb this private peace.
two deep jams with a dashing black & white mystique around them. check the b-side: late night club appeal! what it felt like to be so wanted, so adored. no one had ever felt like that about me. it was all so dramatic. always in the wee small hours when it seemed to me that the world was ours - that we were the world.
