Solarstone & Stine Grove

Solarstone & Stine Grove

Solarstone and Stine Grove have discog history together, though thus far it’s an incomplete one. Stine’s released her solo material on Pure Trance and has been remixed (on ‘Against The Flow’) by Solarstone. The pair hadn’t produced in direct conjunction, though - a situation (given the above) that has now changed. In the middle of last year, the Danish singer reached out to Rich with a story and song and thought that might tie those final loose ends together.

EVL Tom

EVL Tom

The third single from EVL Tom’s forthcoming album on Out Yer Box, ‘Absolute Melt’, is this late-night breakbeat roller. On ‘Eternal Lids’ the break rolls throughout the track incessantly, while the Reese bass — harking back to early-90s jungle — travels alongside it. There’s almost a hint of speed garage and the darker end of UKG to the track, but with an overall raw-like feel of 1990s MPC-led hip-house cuts. The Gary Numan-esque synth stabs that come in later on echo off into the ether.
