Following on from the warm welcome that the Borai release inspired, Chicago imprint Tasteful Nudes is back with another fresh face in the form of Sabre. There's only one other release visible from this unknown quantity, and that would be for the ever-trustworthy W.T. Records, so it gives you some idea of the spiritually adventurous, warmly rendered house and techno we're dealing with here. "Bali" is an ethereal beauty peppered with laconic moans of bass and arresting, slow-release crescendos of pad and string that gently soar to dizzy heights with an admirable restraint. On the flip "Ging" is equally strung out, letting the emotional wash of melodies swirl into a seductive brew of deep tech house fare with a whiff of, dare we say it, trance in the air.
