Australian producer Loure received plenty of props for last year's Westside Movements EP, an impressively dusty, soul-flecked and assured debut 12" on Noire & Blanche. Happily, this follow-up for Apparel Music is every bit as strong. He begins with the sumptuously jazzy, eyes-closed New Jersey deep house vibes of "Track 1", before mixing up crackly spoken word samples, muted jazz horns and dreamy, Andres style grooves on "Track 2". On the B-side, he flits between rubbery, bass-heavy, sample-heavy grooves and immaculate, electric piano-fired breakdowns on standout "Track 3", before reaching for the life-affirming synth strings on the almost overwhelmingly rush-inducing brilliance of "Track 4". Loure is clearly a star in the making so don't sleep on this one.
