Tom Flynn is no stranger to the upper stratospheres of house and techno - his long list of achievements and highlights would fill a page. Long since championed by the likes of Pete Tong, and with his own successful label Into Orbit under his belt, it’s a pleasure to see him release on Poker Flat with this exceptional three-tracker.
'Pluck' see’s the Brit on top form - a low slung groover with a deceptively loose swagger. A thick and full bottom end drives the track along with, tasteful percussion and keys to add some flavour along the way.
'Sunday Morning' Session leans more to the techy side of things - a chugging, spacy track with an insistent kick - it clearly draws inspiration from the long nights on the floor.
'Off The Road' sits somewhere between the two previous cuts - diving into a more dub techno atmosphere. The beats are crisp and precise, the pads full of space and reverb - music to lose yourself in.
Fell in love with this artist just from their happy-go-lucky oner on Childsplay. But this, THIS is true romance between an artist and their sound. When century-old symphony recordings meet today's house, it's bound to have plenty of whirling energies. Be it the silly morning-walk groove "Strange Insects", or the evening wind-down melody "Moroccan Mint Infusion", this record is music for the soul. Moonholders
