For their thirteenth release, Delusions of Grandeur eek some more deep heat out of Australian wunderkind Tornado Wallace. Since "Paddlin" was released back in June young Wallace has delivered some fine remixes for the likes of Hometaping, Kolour and Future Classics which has seen him get props from the likes of The Revenge, Eddie C, Chamboche and Cottam. The three tracks on this release demonstrate a growing maturity in production which will soon promote Wallace alongside the aforementioned. "Always Twirling" hogs the A Side with a dubbed out pads and soaring strings twisting around the throbbing beat augmented by rattling 808 snares and staid hi-hats making for an emotive deep house moment. Wallace goes one better on the B Side with "Twirl and the Beanstalk" a dusty raw beatdown that drops a wormhole synth rhythm in a increasingly chaotic array of percussive delight. Just wow. The final twirl takes proceedings down a notch laying some filtered piano melodies over a bumping mid tempo boogie beat.
