The Lost in Time series continues with the fourth release in Ralph Lawson’s new imprint. The label releases timeless music from a collective of maestros including Chez Damier, Tuccillo, Carl Finlow and Debukas. After the recent license of ‘Hold Over Me’ to No 19 Music the crew return to the mothership for ‘Lost on the Island’. A 3 track EP recorded between studios in Leeds, Paris and Ibiza from Lawson, Finlow and Tuccillo. The final mixing was carried out at Unblock studios in Ibiza after a series of excursions to very diverse places on the Island. ‘Nightcrawler' was inspired by a visit to DC10 while ‘Tide' was made for the Underground club and ‘I Don’t Know’ for the beaches of Salinas.
Ralph Lawson is best known for his 20/20 Vision label and his live project 2020Soundsystem. Now concentrating on his house music roots with a heavy dub leaning. Fellow band-mate Fernando Pulichino has added bass to both the tracks on the flip side while Carl Finlow from Random Factor supplies intricate layers of classic synth sounds that remind us of something Larry Heard would play. Tuccillo, fresh from mixing his ‘Inside Out’ album on Get Physical is an analogue addict with a massive set up at Unblock HQ. On ‘Nightcrawler’ Tucci rocks the gear with rich, warm, massive sounding bass lines and rasping keyboards. A spattering of vocal hooks round off an EP that is strictly set to smash up the dance-floor while being a joy to listen to.
Already turning into a very collectable label 'Lost in Time' continues to put out high quality recordings for underground DJs.
