Southern Depot For connoisseurs. This is one exquisite EP with multiple main courses and it's honestly quite hard to pick a fav track, as it differs depending on your mood. Excellent drum sounds and programming. Little dash of oldschoolness, but keeping it fresh with crispness in production. Love it!

We’re excited to announce the return of Manchester-based producer Earl Grey for his latest release on Inperspective Records. Boasting a repertoire including releases on esteemed labels such as Eastern Promise Audio, Plush Recordings, Subtle Audio Recordings, Western Lore and his own Hyperchamber Music. Following the success of his experimental Headwinds LP and his addition to the “Teddy Bear Trilogy”, Earl Grey now brings dynamic new EP ‘French Exit’ to Inperspective Records.

Opener ‘False Horns’ is a deep track with a sinister build, teasing in an eerie horn sound to create an atmospheric soundscape, with the hypnotic, jazzy fused breakbeat finishing what is an outstanding start to the incredible EP. ‘After They Turn The Rigs Off’ adds an electrifying complexity that takes us on a journey, leading with vocal samples and a piercing beat, before transporting us to a spiritual world through echoing chants and a lighter sound. ‘Mime Jar Lens’ is refreshingly toned-down in comparison to the previous exhilarating tracks. Nonetheless, it packs its own punch, with sharp breaks and an ambient jazzy style that is captivating and dreamy.

Title-track ‘French Exit’ is eerie in a way that will have you hanging on for every beat, as it breaks sonic boundaries and pulls you down into a deep underworld. Earl Grey demonstrates his hypnotic powers, drawing us out from the superbly dark world of the previous track and into the light, dreamy sound of ‘Lessons Learnt.’ ‘Hypothermic’ rounds of this release with a rolling, richly atmospheric track. This closer seamlessly combines both the lighter, ethereal sounds and moodier, dark tones of the other tracks.

‘French Exit’ presents a masterful collection of tracks that twist and turn, but remain united by their richly atmospheric sound. Earl Grey marks his third Inperspective Records release with an invigorating, unique EP, pushing the boundaries of drum and bass.
