HOSH’s fryhide label steps out with a new summer focussed compilation that draws together seven of its artists to showcase what they are all about. The result is an essential collection of great jams.
Throughout the whole compilation there is real quality, with chugging grooves and late night synth magic from DJ Endo and more light, floating, heady pads and lush synth layers on Starship by Mar+Mer. Elsewhere the likes of Anni get you in a trance with sustained chords and glowing keys, and Certain Shadows on the Wall opens things in subtle, hypnotic and progressive fashion with his cute synth sequences. Imagine then offers Karaal, a darker tune with a driving bassline and heavenly chords way off in the distance that get you in the zone. Overall this is musical and moving house with real class.
