STL weaves his low-key house magick in three dusty, trippy, liminal zoners for Echocord.

In fine tradition, he comes on like Theo Parrish’s brother from a German mother on the A-side, melding ruff-cut, Theo-styled rhythms with a patina of pastoral scenery - creaking field gates, sloshing troughs, and breezing cowbells - in the gently dazed, 10 minute stroll of ‘Lost Harbour’, while the effect is tripper on ‘Mr. Sinister’, as brooding tendrils of acidic dub chords infiltrate the sublime field recordings luring us into twilight states, before ‘Sensemilla’ beckons the night properly with reverberating kicks carrying filtered blue noise and barely-there, ghostly chords.
