  • Description Toronto hometown hero Arthur Oskan makes a triumphant return to Thoughtless with his first release for us since his Juno-nominated full-length, A Little More Than Everything. Mining the melodic analog terrain for which he's best known, Exit Strategy manages to retain his distinctive style while at the same time displaying an undeniable evolution - resulting in a club-friendly dose of techno euphoria. Between his hectic schedule of relentless touring and production for his own Items & Things imprint, Canadian post-minimal icon Marc Houle somehow found time to put on a clinic with his advanced remix that merges a notorious love of retro synths with a dynamic arrangement that couldn't be more modern. Trapez LTD artist Shane Berry makes his Thoughtless debut with a lush late night mix that pushes the melodic elements of the original to the forefront while combining them with his own unique flair, while Daniel Ray delivers a dub-inflected reduction that folds hypnotically into bass-forward deep house territory. Portamento finds Arthur returning to the floor-driven style of his earlier Eggshells release, working a tightly wound bass line around spiraling chord patterns and displaced vocals. Finally, Resting Place exploits Oskan's dreamier side, subtly restrained arpeggios pulling the narrative forward atop a rather massive low-end that builds steadily into the melancholic strings which close the affair. A master of his style, Arthur Oskan remains one of our favorite artists, and we couldn't be happier to welcome him back to the label with three strong originals - complimented perfectly by three strong remixes...
