  • Description Since the turn of the century, Glasgow duo Silicone Soul have been one of the corner-stones of the mighty Soma Quality Recordings, giving the label its first chart appearance with Right On,' while relentlessly pushing the boundaries of deep, soul-fuelled house music through their epoch-making albums.

    As their esteemed Darkroom Dubs imprint approaches its tenth anniversary as one of the UKs leading bastions of forward-thrusting subterranean house music, Craig Morrison and Graeme Reedie are releasing their first new music as Silicone Soul on Soma for almost three years.

    Lead track Smokestak is the pulsating embodiment of the raw house music seam the duo have been mining since the late 90's: taking on board the essential groove and vital crowd-detonating manoeuvres while injecting flavours of musics past legacy; in the case of the title track a sublimely extended saxophone line which, while evoking the burning soul of John Coltrane, knows how to stretch into the heart of the most delirious dance floor.

    This underlying knowledge of and passion for music, which has always underpinned the pairs musical explorations, positively explodes in the conga fury of I Am,' the soul power whipped up by gospel preaching. If that wasnt enough, Burning Sands is plucked from their second album, 'Staring Into Space' and given the deepest Hypnohouse Dub sheen. The sonic adventures are completed by 'One Thing' and the twilight zone finale of 'Like Mice In A Maze.'

    Dj's, dancers and seen-it-all house stalwarts should be both honoured and enthralled to be assuaged by such a mighty missive. That its the door to Darkroom Dubs inner sanctum having its own first decade knees up is a frightening bonus.
