Loz Goddard is a Manchester based musician and DJ who has been producing records for the likes of Outplay, Razor-N-Tape, Quintessentials, Secret Reels and Large. When he isn’t working on his own beats, Mr. Goddard runs one of the most underrated radio shows on the internet known as Downtown Groove Sessions, where he invites artists from near and far to share some of the most promising and upcoming deep house tracks on the horizon. Personally, his shows have played an integral role in exposing me to some of the best songs the underground has to offer and I could not be more appreciative.
We were lucky enough to interview Loz about a year and a half ago, in which he compiled a mix for us and taught us how to grow fine chilies. Since that time, Loz has taken a bit of a break from producing but appears to be getting back into the groove with his upcoming release Find Me on the prestigious imprint Church. Featuring a collection of three originals and a remix from the lads of Session Victim, we are definitely glad that he has finally got the juices flowing again. This occurrence may or may not be chili related.
For his title track, which we are premiering for you guys today, Loz puts together his own unique brand of melodic, deep house in which he pairs an eclectic mix of jazz instrumentation with rolling basslines and steadfast percussion -- the likes of which resembles the work of contemporaries such as Laurence Guy. Arguably the most memorable and captivating feature of the song has to be the sampled vocal that is laid out throughout its entirety. Smokey and evocative, this mysterious voice will leave you feeling hot and bothered with its faint whispers imploring you to come find it. I don’t know where this person is, but this song makes me want to start looking immediately.
