The latest release from Lucidflow sees Dip turn out a three tracker heavily slanted towards deep soundtracky atmosphere, with an acute eye for sonic placement on the aural stage. Dip straight in at the title track and you’ll discover why. ‘Kaleidoscope’ has a few tricks up its sleeves that beguile – the low end timbre spreads out wide creating a imposing horizon, an arpeggio hook rolls in like milky grey clouds, and a string swell rises as if the sun is just about managing to pierce through before being obscured again.

Following this is a piece of driving dub-funk in the shape of ‘Moloko’. It taps into the same sort of vibe that was rife around the turn of the millennium, where deep house and progressive found themselves unexpected bedfellows, combining well produced thoughtful fare with a dark dance floor edge.

Going further down this rabbit hole, ‘Little Man’ is the perfect soundtrack for the Springtime months, where every sunny morning carries the risk of a sharp flurry of afternoon snow. Feel free to warm up to the inviting bass line, but not too much, there is ice at the core of ‘Little Man’ keeping things sharp.
