http://soundcloud.com/taleandtoneThe latest release off of Hoj and Lee Burridge’s new label, Tale and Tone, is the Hunter EP from long time collaborator and friend, Lost Desert. Bringing his trademark grooves to the helm, the EP is complete with perfect melodic accompaniments and distant sounds that feel like schoolyard nostalgia on dancefloor ears.
The two-track release is a highly emotive pairing of tunes with the A-Side, Hunter, enlisting Amari and vocalist Adomas. The title track sees Lost Desert & Amari utilize evocative piano chords layered over rough percussion to create an infectious groove to match the tender voicings of Adomas.
Hunter is joined by a distantly lush companion, Innercity Playground, featuring the collaborative efforts of Mike Tohr. With introspective pads and delicate percussion, Lost Desert and Mike Tohr create a stunning juxtaposition to Hunter, further pushing the House sound that the Tale and Tone Crew is becoming known for.
This release arrives on the heels of Tale and Tone’s debut of the Cornucopia EP, which enjoyed the #1 spot on Beatport’s New Releases and swiftly made it’s way onto Beatport’s Top 10 overall chart. As is evident by Pete Tong’s naming of Hunter as his Essential New Tune of September, the pairing of these standout releases has cut a definitive niche for Hoj and Lee Burridge’s budding imprint, offering a new favorite for those seeking an avant-garde journey through the cosmic house sound.
