You have to go back two summers to the last time Eliphino was spotted on a 12" slab of vinyl, sharing space with Seven Davis Jr and Rekchampa for some daring reworks as part of the Love Below series. This Joy In Repetition 12" sees Eliphino return, brandishing a quartet of tracks the producer laid down whilst on a year break from London in Berlin, and arriving on the label of the same name founded by him and Dimensions Festival man Andy Lemay. If you picked up Jackmaster's recent DJ Kicks effort, you'll be familiar with the rich house shuffle of opening track "Isabella Road" but this 12" sees Eliphino offer a wider demonstration of his production palette. A sense of warmth is apparent throughout as subsequent tracks touch on a more off-kilter approach to production with "April Baby" and "Piano Day" featuring some fine abstracted beat patterns and fluttering synth lines. Closer "LinkLater" sees Eliphino return to lush house sounds in a triumphant fashion.
