Psycle’s expertly curated catalogue continues with a new addition from Pow-Low that comes hot on the heels of his Inhale EP back in June.

Pow-Low is a core part of this label and keeps serving up the goods with each new offering. He hails from the Italian part of Switzerland but his musical endeavours have taken him all over the world. He’s formally studied jazz, been playing vinyl since his teenage years, studied recording engineering and production and worked in high end studios in Hollywood as well as being in a number of bands.

The charming title track opens up this release with lively house music that is enriched with warm, smeared chords, bubbly bass and an inviting, heartwarming vibe. ‘Studio’ is another deep but driving track with bass and synths that melt around each other as jazzy hi hats spin up top.

The classy, good time grooves continue with ‘nowER,’ which has deft little bass riffs sticking out of a gooey groove and cosmic pads adding to the superbly stylish feel. Luzern jazz-school band, Colster provide the next offering, deftly remixed by Pow-low, ‘Around The World (Pow-Low Remix)’ is a superbly soul-drenched track with lounge-y chords and effortlessly smooth rolling kicks and vocals. Offering something more minimal, freaky and late night is the excellent ‘Son of a Beat’ (2019 remaster) which is a busy track with rich layers of synth, keys, samples and perc all scurrying above a restless rhythm.

This is brilliantly colourful house music that exudes real soul and charm from start to finish.
