Editor’s Review:Those in the know will be fans of Ben Sun. His run of outstanding releases on Delusions Of Grandeur may spring to mind. The Aussie now calls London his home, and he’s been playing on the underground scene in the city for time now. His inspirations are in plain sight, Ben making no secret of his love of the deep textures of house that harks back Chicago’s golden age. Here, he invites the brilliant Jon Sable – who has worked with Tief, and Banoffee Pies, and who runs In Dust We Trust, with fellow Kiwis, Chaos in the CBD – to collaborate on track, Sable Sun. 

I don’t have a favourite on this release as each entry is very welcome in my house! Like all the best body music, the bass-lines are built to make dancers do their thing all night, while the pads shimmer, iridescent, and the beats cascade with purpose. Shining bright in a sea of mediocrity, Distant Messenger, is start to finish class, and then some.
