      Irish born, Leeds residing Gavin, teams up with Detroit born, Detroit residing Delano to deliver a record to suit varied tastes.

      The A-Side belongs to Delano, his opener ‘Lost In Detroit’ is smooth and warm, slowly sucking you in with its swung out hi hats and understated bass line. A subtle vocal sample helps to develop this hypnotic groover into a soundtrack for that late night drive in the middle of nowhere. It builds, breaks and effortlessly re-develops itself in such a subtle way as to make this level of production sound easy.

      Delano then follows this up with his ‘Deep Space’ remix of Gavin Herlihy’s ‘Krypton Factor’, the record’s B-Side track. Kicking off with a muggy, fogged out bassline, all bass and no highs. This is cut through by sweeping pads and short organ stabs that build this track with anticipation. When the highs rock in with a repeated vocal line that swells and breaks into a typically Delano esque lead synth line, this piece goes from good to better. This is unequivocally my favourite track on this release.

      Gavin Herlihy’s B-Side contribution, ‘Krypton Factor’s (Original Mix)’ is a cut up, glitched out house track that has a nice clean bass line and is layered by a sparse, eerie, synth sound scape. The track is helped to get rolling by nice 727 conga rhythms and the building of abstract sounds and well programmed beats. Although I dig the sounds in this track, at a little over ten minutes, I feel it doesn’t progress enough after the first two. A track that will appeal to more techy fans, but for people like me, who are looking for the deeper side of the spectrum, they will find all they need on the A-Side.

      Apparel Records have delivered a record thats split down the middle. On one side, the deep emotion of Delano Smith, a man known for delivering tasteful, deep house music. And on the other side, the raw production of Gavin Herlihy, a man who has been making a serious name for himself through his releases. This is a great record for fans of both.
