Shall Not Fade welcomes Melbourne based DJ and producer Loure to the family for Memories In Strobes EP, four tracks of elated and explorative house. The Australian has cultivated an enigmatic presence with his jazzy, deep-house style, although the listener will hear hints of influence from electro to breakbeat on the new EP.
The opening track, “Grip”, shows off the best of Loure’s skills. Glorious sweeping pads and faded breaks make for a blissed out vibe in this intricately produced hands-in-the-air favourite. It melts into “Two Dimes Deep”, which continues the spaced-out deep house energy but with more bite, ...teasing bits of electro in its firm bassline.
“Inner-Side” is pushed forward by driving house rhythms, covered by French-style filtered vocals to create a euphoric club track. Closing it out is “Breath of Light”, constructed from a shuffling and constantly moving beat and euphoric pads which swoop down from above, with a growling acidic edge battling against them for centre stage
