DELANO SMITH - FROM SILENCE
"13 months on from his last outing for the label, Detroit veteran Delano Smith returns to Sushitech. From Silence is typical of his output for the imprint, and presents an evocative late-night fusion of shuffling techno hypnotism and locked-in deep house. "A1" sets the tone, with warm, delay-laden riffs stretching out across a hazy, trance-inducing groove. The more up-tempo "B1" keeps a similar ethos while moving further towards techno territory, as does the more obviously dubby "C1". "D1" is a deep, picturesque treat with a brilliant extended breakdown, while closer "D2" is as toasty and comforting as a drunken, fireside cuddle. It's this track - dreamy and tactile, with slightly looser beats - that arguably stands out, despite the high-quality threshold throughout." Juno Records - Feb 2016
