DESCRIPTION

Time flies when you’re having fun and we can’t fathom how this can be Ben Sun’s 5th EP for Delusions Of Grandeur but it’s true enough and once again he comes up trumps in the form of the Place Of Worship EP. Having previously graced such esteemed imprints as Royal Oak, Tru Thoughts, Razor n Tape as well as his own vinyl-only label Voyeurhythm the London based Australian producer continues to be both highly regarded, yet somewhat under the radar but we’re sure that’s about to change with this incredible new three tracker.

Opening up we have See It Come Shining, just the kind of life-affirming club track which seem to be in such short supply these days, but that we need now more than ever. Gospel flavoured piano chords tug on the heart strings whilst a simple, raw disco groove with added 909 punch creates a warmth and energy that transcends the dance floors that it’s destined to liberate.

Flipping over we have Oceanways T150, a deep, analogue jam that harks back to simpler times when breakbeats collided with a house thump, uplifting pianos meld into punching basslines and discovering music through muffled old cassette mixtapes or patchy pirate radio reception was all we knew.

Rounding off the EP we have the perfect closer Atlantis Transfer. Here Ben puts more early influences into the mixing pot with ambient washes cascading down over a sublime 90’s deep house bassline. Analogue hats and tripped-out sound FX skirt around a naive synth melody making for a heady late night treat to get lost in.

Always a pleasure to hear new music from Ben.

ATJAZZ
An incredibly stunning EP. Right up my street!

FRED EVERYTHING
Lovely stuff. Digging the recent balearic shift on Delusions, which is already one of my favorite labels. Ok, maybe not the easiest stuff to program in a night but so rewarding when you can manage to do so. Oceanways is my favorite of the bunch.

SOUL CLAP
Oooh. See It Come Shining is gorgeous! Ben Sun is always a fave and this EP is a welcome return...

PONCHARTRAIN
This album makes me miss the sunshine so much! Can't wait to give it a rinse this spring.

RON BASEJAM
Thanks for this. 'see it come shining' is the one for me here, that piano chord progression is a right ear-worm!
