Amidst all this COVID-19 chaos, we’re all in search of positive outlets. How about one from Edinburgh hey..? The jolly Scotsman Telfort returns with his 4th EP (TLFT004), once again pressed with his very own TFLT emblem. Now if you know this chaps music, there’s a sense of precision about his records, seemingly every layer of every track mixed to perfection and this dose is no different.
The B1 ‘It’s A Phase’ immediately stuck its chest out. An artfully repetitive house roller, made up of sharp percussion, laser-like keys and a reverberating dial tone on loop. There’s real texture in this record with rich synths that feel like the gift of flight and dense bass notes that inspire human movement. ‘It’s A Phase’ deliberately doesn’t reach any great crescendos, it coasts along with an understated authority, like all those who drive Teslas.
Thus far, its just been Telfort pressing original material to TLFT. If I were a fortune teller, I’d say it won’t be too long before he invites other producers aboard his classy house bandwagon. Hop on and find a spare seat!
