Premiere: Lossy – Blues For Jekyll
Hurtling through the swamp with only the moonlight to guide him, trying not to stumble over the mesh of tree roots, he could hear the barking of dogs in the distance becoming louder and louder. Glancing behind, he was able to make out torch beams cutting through the darkness like knives through hot butter. He could feel the transformation taking place – not much time left before it would take hold of him completely. Desperate to hide from his pursuers, he dived head first into the thick mud and prayed that it would cover his scent.
Out this Friday, Gated Soul is the fourth release from London composer/producer Lossy aka Sam Sharp on his own Boot Cycle Audio imprint! Lossy has previously released on labels including Tru Thoughts and Tessier-Ashpool, and has collaborated with the likes of Zed Bias, Roska and Laura Mvula.
Below you can listen to the new EP's lead track 'Blues For Jekyll', written while Sharp was on tour with a band reimagining DJ Shadow's classic Endtroducing….. album. It's an instantly endearing slice of soulful electro, as swirling synth figures pile up on top of warm chords, bringing to mind a more bucolic Lone. Listen below:
Gated Soul is out 20th April via Boot Cycle Audio, and you can pre-order it here.
