DESCRIPTION

Russia’s Art Crime seemingly came out of nowhere with his first record and it blew us all away at Phonica. Lead track ‘Release’ was pure nineties house nostalgia, a huge reverbed piano over skipping drums that became an instant shop classic. We just couldn’t get it out of our heads!

Needless to say we reached out to Art Crime instantly, hoping to lure another 12” of material from him and with the ‘Obsession EP’ we are blown away with the results. Art Crime has delivered another anthemic record, four tracks of melancholic house music, sounding both of the past and future.

The title track ‘Obsession’ is another massive piano laden House beauty, permeated with shim- mering synth stabs. Up next is ‘Show Interest’, with its almost-oriental synth melody glowing over a cold arpeggiated electro pulse. On the flip, ‘Eye Contact’s glacial pads and piano are followed by ‘Rise Fall Run’, the most restrained track of the set, an etheral journey through the clouds.

As with his first 12”, Art Crime is behind the front cover artwork, with the reverse based on Jack Featherstone’s layout for our previous release.
