Up next on Heist is an undercover project of a well-known producer who decided it was time to experiment, broaden his sound and produce music without the expectation that comes with an established name. Lore of the Samurai delivers an expertly crafted record with classic Chicago influences, hints of electro and up-tempo technoid house.

EP closer ‘Justifice’, is as smooth as a deep house track can be with lovely, filtered chords and massive vocal sent through a vocoder that would have made Zapp & Roger proud. The whole EP has a great groove, and you can hear the craftmanship just oozing out your speakers. In short, an essential package with something for everyone.  

Editor’s Review:Mystery man, Lore Of The Samurai, drops his debut on Dutch imprint Heist. With an already well-established name, this warrior of the dance has gone undercover, and you cannot fail to be impressed by his masterful production moves. The music is expertly crafted and impressively executed over five ridiculously good cuts. The classic house ‘City Loop’ opens and beckons you on to the rougher sounding Chicago house ‘Deeper Into Orbit’. ‘Space Designer’ drops a syncopated bassline that is sure to fire up the floor. ‘Alpha Base’ is dreamy, at the same it possesses a break that rages into deeper and darker electronic house territory. But the cut of the EP has to be ‘Justifice’. This is silky smooth, beautiful deep house that will glide and slice up the dance, with a vocal cry that turns this closing cut into an absolute stone-cold killer.
