planet e are proud to present aw18 collection, a 3 track ep from british producer tom flynn. drawing upon a broad and learned musical understanding, aw18 collection fuses disparate strands from the worlds of fashion, club culture and sound design to forge a highly atmospheric, singular release. packard, the title of which is inspired by parties in the historic detroit power plant of the same name, establishes an unrelenting energy from the get go. a bouncing kick lays the foundations for rolling synths, unnerving vocal samples and delicate piano refrains to wander. anna is an indulgent nod to the catwalk, marching with intent amidst immersive chords and subtle melodies. the b side hosts a trippy cut full of interplanetary glitches and melancholic harmonies. drawing upon hints to the extraterrestrial, marx creates a dizzying swirl with glistening textures. carl craig was sold straight away: when tom sent me his demo of packard i knew i wanted to release it on planet e. the mix of looped electronics with soul of the piano brought me back to when i first heard the post-disco classic beyond the clouds. i can imagine the kids on the scene rockin hard to this.
tom flynn marks his first appearance on exit strategy, starting off with a strong package of four tracks. each of them tends towards a slightly different side of his ecstatic and clean production style - making this a very coherent well balanced collection of killers.
a bunch of bubbling uk deep house players line up on introducing newington, a new label of the same name that is clearly fond of the n16 postcode with vocal house on the menu. ejeca, the irishman earmarked as the next bicep, keeps up his relentless form this year with the opening track robodrum which is a playful shuffling little house number that rotates between stabbing vocal samples and piercing chords. moving south of the irish border, dublin based frank b kills it with trieste a wonderfully warp cut that sounds like it has been recovered from a dust filled dat tape. london types jack fell down take a cleaner, but no less infectious approach on for you whilst midlands type tom flynn rounds it out with the deep and bouncy going on.

having wowed us with last summers argentina ep for the label, tom returns to circus with his latest work, the four track white drum ep. whilst its heavy on the bass, this new ep also demonstrates the maturing of flynns production with his impressive use of vocals and melody throughout. having now played events in both liverpool and london, tom flynn has been welcomed further into the circus fold and his white drum ep confirms him as one of the family!
after several hot tunes on worthys anabatic imprint, birminghams tom flynn joins the ranks of the dirtybird crew. i ve battle tested the a-side of this record all around the world. >catch that bird< is a rare mix of deep rooted funk whilst also sounding like a caribbean jungle track pitched down to 126. my favorite!
i d play this ep just on the strength of the a-side but i feel like a lot of attention will also be given to the b-side called >rhode island<. this is a classic piece of deep house with all the melodic elements of a dirtybird jam.
tom sent me at least 7 tracks before i signed these so the guy is certainly prolific and i expect to hear quite a bit more from this up and comer this year.
