LICKETY SPLIT / SNAPS
12" Vinyl UK
Telfort makes a hugely welcome return after the success-and-repress of his self-released debut, the aptly titled In A Good Place and appearance on the slick Lionoil Industries imprint.
The Edinburgh-based powerhouse makes a strong impression once again with a further hand-stamped, limited pressing of two stellar cuts. The tense emotional drive of ‘Lickety Split’—where deep, colourful chords float and fold sublimely over a stomping club-ready foundation and penetrating bassline—conjures up images of a transcendent moment to be shared with friends and strangers be it at Robert Johnson, Corsica Studios, or an imagined open-air setting heavy on sunlight beaming through trees. On the flip we hear the dusty and melodic warmth of ’Snaps’ exhibit Telfort's uncanny knack of crafting tough-yet-delicate grooves that mesmerise and enchant us.
Garnering notable support from the likes of Hunee, Axel Boman, Smallpeople, Bicep, Moxie, Krysko, Matt Karmil, Dan Beaumont, Fudge Fingas, Rroxymore and many more, the hotly tipped Telfort continues to carve out his own niche in house music with his inimitable mix of subtle rhythmic wisdom and guile [txt from ]
