REVIEW ::: Laurence Guy – Les Mur EP [Monologues Records]

Ben Gomori’s Monologues Records are onto their second release already, handing out some fine deep house from British producer Laurence Guy.  Having already been praised by the likes of Jaques Renault, Moon Boots and Tayo, while being premiered through DJ MAG a few weeks back, it’s hopeful that this release will receive the attention it so rightly deserves. In a nutshell, it doesn’t disappoint.

The EP opens with ‘Les Mur’ – a very relaxing yet prominent house track whose groove is impossible to ignore. The medley of pads and synths are mesmerising to say the very least, as they dance precariously on top of the solid backbone of bass and drums. It’s very easy to lose time while listening to this track. A cracking start.

The Second track ‘Sunlite’ takes you back to summer immediately, reminiscing of sunsets past and parties had. The pads and synths provide a soundscape that is dreamy and sophisticated. The simple percussion glides along the steady stomp of the drums, leaving you nodding within seconds. It’s impossible not to ignore this track and a clear winner for us. An absolute delight from start to finish. Top stuff.
