SLG - Sopot SLG's stock is on the rise after their excellent 'Caffine' release on Trapez late last year, and this four-tracker on the new label from Polish compatriots 3Channels should do Lukasz Seligia no harm at all. 'Sopot' has his trademark swing (um, can you have a trademark after five releases?) – and it's busy. Nestled amongst the detailed drums and key-changing chord washes is something unexpected: a surprisingly funky deep house bassline that changes the character of the track, bringing some unexpected boompty, but making proceedings a bit too hectic. 'Lodz Fabrycnza' is trackier – the intricate swing is present again (see?!), but the darker bass, synth scrapes and 303 dabs tone things down. Full marks for the ominous string surges, which Jacek Sienkiewicz focuses on for his murky, weird mix: the aggressive, staccato percussive elements and gloopy FX/fills are in stark contrast to the mesmerising glockenspiel that drifts in near the end. An unusual take on a fairly standard club track, so that should be applauded. Mike Shannon strips back 'Sopot' into a usable jacking tech-houser.
