Delsin's re-issue arm is back with a timely release of classic Norken material. Featuring on the EP is the cult 'Southern Soul' - originally released on REEL Discs in 1998 - plus 'More Frequencies' and 'Shifting Towards', two tracks from his 1999 album 'Soul Static Bureau'. Norken, of course, is Lee Norris, best known as Metamatics and a producer with a fine discography that takes in proper deep house, sleek minimal and atmospheric dub.
'Southern Soul' is eight widescreen and cinematic minutes of dubby deep house. A whole eco-system of cosmic melodies and smeared pads bring warmth and colour and its easy to see why this track has became so in demand. 'More Frequencies' is another intergalactic effort with pixel thin synths and sci-fi melodic sounds all raining down above a minimal groove. It's electric sounding and still from the future, 20 years after its first release. Last cut 'Shifting Towards' is somewhere between the two, with Detroit style keys and synths, soft rolling drums and a spaced out feel that leaves you floating in a wide open cosmos.
